Chillwave. 12oz bottle poured into tulip. Slightly hazy copper orange with off-white head that settles to a ring and islands. Aroma is orange juice, pineapple, mango, caramel, grass, and bread. Taste is strongly sweet for the style with tropical fruit juice and caramel notes followed by spicy, peppery hop bitterness. Alcohol wafts through on the swallow. Medium body, thick resiny texture, shy of moderate carbonation, grassy bitterness on the finish with some residual sugar.

Aroma is pine, citrus and big hops. The flavor is grapefruit, fruit, hop resin, mild sugar/sweetness notes and a tangy/bitter/warming finish.
