look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours a clear medium-light amber with a nice head that falls to a thin ring and wispy cap. Some lacing down the glass.
Pine and citrus hit first with some tropical fruit and caramel following. A little bit of wet grass sneaks in too. I even caught a little coconut on one whiff. Lots of hops, as expected, but a pretty sweet aroma tries to balance.
Like the aroma, the hops dominate the flavor too. Pine and citrus followed by the tropical fruit flavors again. Strangely, the coconut that was only a passing aroma seems to be more prominent in the flavor. Caramel/brown sugar sweetness come through as a nice balance.
Good mouthfeel. Somewhat sticky and resiny. Good carbonation.
Quite drinkable. This is a hop bomb, but a balanced one. At 7.5%, only 1 or 2 would be enough for an evening.
Probably one of the most complex ambers I've ever had. If I didn't look at the style, I would have thought this was an IPA. Great beer for hopheads, but probably not a good "crossover" beer.

This is quite the luscious treat! It pours medium brown, with an amazing head. The aroma is hoppy and malty.
The taste is a robust full bodied, hoppy thing. Wonderful and unique. The aftertaste is strong and sweet.
Overall, it is a good, robust brew, but a bit overpowering for many foods.

Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a nice white head that leaves a nice ring of lacing around the glass.
Smell is very citrusy up front with some sweet and bitter notes added in. A very complex sleeping beer.
Taste is excellent. Tastes just like it smells, bitter yet sweet. An absolute perfect balance of flavors. Starts out sweet citrus followed by slightly bitter hops taste.
Overall an excellent beer with a lot of aroma and flavor balanced perfection. I heard great things about this beer and it did not disappoint. Best beer I've had from Troegs by far. Highly recommended!
