Had on draft at Palmer Place in LaGrange. Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden straw with amber hues intertwined throughout the body. There is a half finger of off white head that sticks around the entire time and leaves some nice rings of lace down the glass.

S: The smell is incredibly malty with a slight piney and dank hops smell backing it up. As the beer warmed a bit some of the fruitiness showed itself.

T: The malts were the star of the show for a while with finishes of resiny and bitter hops. Once the beer warmed some of the fruitiness started to come out, but it took way too long for this to happen.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation.

O: This was a little to malty for at the beginning. Once the beer warmed some of the better flavors I was expecting came out, but it took too long for this to happen

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Golden yellow with a slight haze. Half finger white head with decent retention and good lacing.

S: Huge pineapple juice and mango hop aromas. Sweet smell not hoppy.

T: Again huge pineapple juice and mango. No bitterness until the end. Finishes with a grapefruit acidity.

M: Medium light body. Medium carbonation. Slick and pretty dry.

O: Good but the grapefruit in the end kinda ruins the nice pineapple flavors.
