Big thanks to ehammond1 for sending me my first bottle!

bright crisp looking copper colored body with a generous three fingers of thick white suds. loads of lacing and ring after ring around the mug as the beer dwindled. huge tropical fruit in the nose, i could smell this all day! pineapple, mango, lemon, orange, grass, malts and toasted biscuits. taste is very pineapple forward. bright, crisp and juicy all describe what i taste, very fresh tasting nectar of the gods. a little sticky pine oil on the inside of my cheeks helps to keep the sweetness under control. a dry bitter finish is quickly washed away by more juicyness and leaves me wanting more. one bottle of this is not enough and only lasted as long as it did because i was taking notes. i'm a believer!
