A: Chill hazy, golden orange color. Decent looking head forms briefly. Some fair lacing is going on.

S: Guava, pine, peach, other tropical and fleshy fruits, pineapple. Smells phenomenal.

T: Taste delivers as well. Tropical fruit, bitter pine, pineapple. Perhaps a trace of Belgian yeasty characteristics, but the tasty hops are dominating.

M: Nice IPA feel. Touch of oily slickness.

O: Outstanding. Definitely worth a six-pack purchase if you're seeking it out.

A beautiful fusion. Poured from bottle to tulip. One and a half fingers foamy white head dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet Belgian yeast mingled with citrus and tropical fruits. The taste unravels in similar fashion. Sweet bubblegum/banana upfront on the tongue, followed closely by mango, grapefruit and lemon zest, and finishes with and bitter kick in the back of the mouth. One of my personal favorites, hopefully we'll see this one in bottles again in 2017.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Golden orange body. Fleeting but nice white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Citrusy hops. Belgian yeast and sweetness. A little phenolic.

Taste - Much maltier. Grapefruit hop. Sweet pale malts. Super bitter in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Very bitter.

Overall - Very bitter, but good.
