4.22/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

This is definitely overdue for me, finally came across some while in Cleveland last weekend. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.

Appearance is a glorious clear sparkling amber with lots of carbonation rising up keep a very nice 1/4" head on the beer throughout.

Aroma is very resiny with some light piney notes but a glaring tropical fruit explosion that is just off the charts in deliciousness. But wait - it's not all hops! There is a really nice sweet caramel maltiness in there as well - a welcome thing in most of these hoppy beers of late.

The taste starts off rather bland in the mouth with some piney notes before I swallow but immediately upon swallowing I am hit by the tropical fruit and more pine flavor with the malt sweetness kicking in for just a second before finishing bittersweet with a nice lingering juicy hop taste.

Mouthfeel is good, medium body, really smooth and slightly creamy.

Really nice brew for sure, can't say I'd rate it up there with Hopslam or something, but it's definitely up there.
