3.85/5  rDev -1%

A - Clear orangish amber in color with a 2 finger khaki head that is very slow to dissipate. Creamy frothiness to the head. 4/5

S - Floral, orange flesh, sweet fruit. Pine. White bread. Somewhat subdued surprisingly. 3.5/5

T - Dark stone fruit (dates and raisins). Biscuit. Piney, resiny, grassy finish. Lingering bitterness. Bitterness is more prominent than fruitiness throughout the flavor profile. Ever so slight hint of green apple. 4/5

M - Heavy body. Low to moderate carbonation. Sticky. 4/5

O - Nice complexity. The fruit notes as well as the heavy body thew me off initially but they work well and the hop bitterness is balanced, mostly, by the sweetness. 3.75/5

12oz to a snifter, best before 10/22

Pours a really dark golden orange with a finger and a half of foam. Not bad retention, down to half a finger after a minute or two. Pretty hazy, low carbonation

Smells pretty floral. Upfront heavy pine, followed by a lot of citrus- mostly all grapefruit. A little sweet caramel on the malts, touch of alcohol on the finish

Taste follows well. Lots of heavy pine, backed up by some relatively submissive citrus. A much less sweet caramel malt come through on the back

Feel is a medium body, high bitterness. Alcohol hidden well, super easy to drink

Overall this beer really reminds me of when my friends and I would attempt to down Torpedoes in high school. I got that first initial super piney shock of hops on my first couple sips of this six pack, brought back a lot of memories. And to think now I knock these guys back no problem
