Huge thanks to koopa for sharing this treat with me!

Pours a hazy, pale golden orange color with tangerine edges and a 1.5 finger white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring.  Spotty lacing left behind.

Dank, earthy hop aroma with resinous pine needle, grassy hops and a strong citrus/tropical fruit presence.  Pale malt backbone with hints of biscuit, graham cracker and straw.  Lots of mango, grapefruit, pineapple and orange peel character but it's balanced by the earthier hop notes and subtle malt backbone.  

Medium bodied with a blast of earthy, piney hops countered by sweet citrus and tropical fruit notes.  Grassy, dry and resinous with hints of curaçao, blood orange, grapefruit, pineapple and mango countered by a pale malt backbone.  more earthy than sweet but still very well balanced with a delicious hop profile and just enough malt.
