Served on-tap at Capone's on Black Friday.
A - Pours copper orange with a small one finger tall white head leaving small streaks of lace down the glass.
S - Smells of citric hops, pine resin, tropical fruits, and plenty of sweet caramel malt. It didn't smell too bad but it didn't smell great either.
T - Starts off with a big dose of pungent citric hops quickly giving way to a mix of sweet caramel malt, sticky pine resin, and dulled tropical fruits. The sweetness only grows as the beer warms up. The finish is a mix of sweetness and dulled hop bitterness, lingering on the pallet for quite awhile.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet, hoppy, feel that clings to the pallet long after each sip.
O - I had this one right away so it had to have been near the top of the keg, yet it just didn't do it for me. Don't get me wrong, it was still a good beer, but not as good as I was hoping it would be.
