Cloudy gold colour, smells like peaches, floral hops, citrus hops, and malty. Slightly alcoholic aroma. This is a heady flavourful beer and well balanced. Sweet heavy fruity malts phase into predominant floral and citrus hop followed by a strong alcohol peak. Lingering floral hops on palate. A very sippable beer.

Would I buy it again? Probably.

Pours a slightly hazy dark golden orange with a slight amber hue an d a thin layer of foam.

Orange, lemon, peach, mango and overall just very tropical in aroma.

The citrus and tropical fruit flavor comes through, but this pretty hot and boozy.

Medium-bodied, low carbonation, resinous, boozy.

Overall, great aroma nice flavor but a tad too much alcohol heat.

Enjoyed this 12 oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a copper hue with a thin white head that quickly dissipates leaving a decent trail and semi wispy lace.

S: Sweet malty aroma – almost barely-wine like with a decent hoppy profile.

T: Strong alcoholic malty flavor – again reminding me of a barley wine, slightly hoppy – but more malt than hops.

M: Heavy body and medium carbonation

O: Decent brew – more balanced to the malt than hops
