3.78/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 341ml bottle into a tulip, bottle courtesy of korguy123, via LIF! Cheers dude, pumped for this one. BBD is a couple days ago, but I'll try to keep that in mind.

Pours a golden amber with about a finger and a half of off-white head which quickly settles to a bubbly collar, yet reappears with a quick swirl. Quite solid retention given the age on this. Carbonation streaming form the bottom of this, and the clarity is quite hazy. Smells of peaches, tangerine, mango and some other light tropical fruits, heavy on the malt here also. Taste is lead by the sweet toffee and caramel malt and fruits, the big malt hits first and in quick and almost simultaneous succession the tropical fruits appear again. Leaves a touch of lingering bitterness on the tongue, and a burn of alcohol is present with this also. Mouthfeel is quite full, ABV is detectable and is fairly creamy and smooth throughout. Drinkable, but 1 bottle of this is enough for a sitting. Would love to try this super fresh!
