3.96/5 rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Appearance: Clwar amber with a creamy filmy head. Healthy dose of carbonation throughout. Good amount of lacing
Aroma: Dank hops and sweet caramel malts. Fruity. I smell mango and apricot. Oranges and maybe a whiff of sweet bananas. Floral grassy notes too
Taste: Sweet at first. Lots of sugary caramel and sweet fruits like apples, juicy melon, some citrusy oranges. Toasty bread malts. There's some grassy hop profile and some tart grapefruit but as it warms it stays sweet longer. The finish has a hint of pine and a touch of lemon. Very nice
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium body. Slightly carbonated. A little slick
Overall: This is a prime example of a beer becoming a totally different animal as it warms. When I first poured it from my fridge it had a huge hop flavor. As it got nearer to room temperature the hops gave way to sweet fruity malts. Another solid offering from Troegs
Serving type: bottle
