3.95/5 rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Got a few of these during my most recent trades. 12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip. Comes in at 7.5% and 93ish IBUs. Bottled on is tough to read and is either 1/12/10 or 2/12/10.
A-A pour right down the middle of the glass results in a clear amber beer with a nice two finger off white head. The head has some nice retention.
S-The hops used do stand out. It has a nice spike of tropical citrus and some pine. Smells very fresh and compared to the aged versions I have tried before, it is definitely better. Deserves a 4.25 in this category.
T-It starts out with tropical fruit flavors that remind me of mango blended into a pina colada. There is a large malt backbone which imparts a definite caramel sweetness in the middle. It also has noticeable toasted malt flavors. The fruit flavors return at the end. It gets sweeter as it warms, but has a dry finish. As it warms bitter grapefruit flavors come out.
M-The body falls on the low end of the medium spectrum. I found it to be coarse in the back of my mouth.
D-Definitely the best bottle I have tried. Would love to try it fresh from the source.
A nice hoppy amber. Worth seeking out if it is super fresh.

4.23/5 rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: light pale/orange. Not quite an amber at all. Very nice white head that leaves decent lacing.
Smell: sweet caramel malt, some raisins, nice light piney/earthy hoppiness
Taste: caramel malt with light pine/earthiness/spice. Taste so far is the best part of the beer (as it should be?). I expect a boring light amber ale and I get a unique flavor that is different from other "hoppy ambers" or IPAs. I like it. With each sip I like it more. The resiny/oily character and herbal quality come out with each sip
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Slightly sticky/oily.
