Bottle (after on tap week before):
Pours a strange color: deep golden with seeming highlights of orange and brown. Head is medium in build up, but provides lacing. A late swirl brings it back and it still fades slowly.

Nose is a mix of tropical, unripe citrus rind, and a bit of dankness.

Taste starts tropical, honey sweet with a citrus flair opening. Little heat or spice breaks this as the rind starts to add some bitterness. The bitterness only ends up balancing, even when it takes center stage, the sweetness is still in play.

Seems perhaps a tad too sweet early, but only briefly and never far out of balance. In fact if you removed that opening, the rest of the beer is quite enjoyable, even as one that shows both malt and lightly dank bitterness.

Mildly hazy golden color to the beer; huge, frothy head; sticky globs of foam along the glass. Citrus and hop resin aroma; bready. Juicy, tropical fruit flavor; hop spiciness; strong bitterness. Heavy body; juicy; warm with some alcohol heat; crisp and dry at the finish.

The beer delivers a well-balanced blend of flavor and aroma, emphasizing a juicy flavor with a bold hop bitterness.
