A - Semi Translucent Copper Orange sunset, barely any white head and tons of sticky lacing
S - Sugary sweet malts, Lovely booze note, pine, Huge fruity/earthy hops, tangerine, pineapple, slight funk, banana, tons of floral notes, crisp mountain air, champagne yeast and some weed undertones
T - In your face aromatic floral hops, huge malty sweet backbone, tree sap, fresh tropical/island fruits, tangerine, fresh water, lightly toasted grains, sugary booze note and a clean pine finish
M - Medium body, well balanced, nicely complex, medium acidity and a huge sugary malty backbone, with an explosion of glorious hops at the beginning and end finish
D/O - Just all together great. Nice and refreshing, crisp and clean, just well done. Has that CA everything about it. I think the most surprising part is the higher abv and besides the sweetness, not really noticing but at the same time noticing the booze. Real top notch
Final thoughts - $8 a pop, 8+abv and a whole lot of awesome. Get you one and give one as a gift
