Poured from a 12 oz. capped bottle (Born On DEC 20 11) into a pint glass.
A moderate pour yields a 1 1/2-finger cream-colored head that slowly fades to a thick coating and thick foam ring. The body is a clear copper amber with an amazing amount of carbonation bubbles coursing through nearly every available area of liquid. Thick lacing coats the glass in a never-ending blanket of white foam.
While this beer may not be the most aromatic, it is both balanced and enjoyable. Piney and citrusy hops aromas carry notes of tangerine and mandarin oranges. Light malts form a nice backbone with notes of caramel and graham crackers. A slight spiciness adds an extra layer to the nose.
Bitter, grassy hops are balanced by caramel malt. As the beer is swallowed, more grassy hops are met by citrus hops and more caramel and toffee malts flavors. As these fade, a slight bitterness clings to the tip of the tongue as a watery and dulled grassy hops flavor lingers on the rest of the tongue.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, this beer is creamy and easy-drinking. The body is smooth and drinkable but slightly watery in the finish. The carbonation is well hidden but could use a bit more strength during the swallow.

Pours a clear medium amber with a hint of red. Normal head, lacing and retention. Light tropical nose (passion fruit) over caramel. Heavy medium bodied with a nice slick oily texture. Average carbonation level with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The taste profile is balanced between the flavors of the nose. It begins with tropical notes, flows to a bit of spice and ends with a light bitterness over caramel.
