from notes

deep dark amber, nice orange hue to it. Lots of visible carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Upon pour a nice, two inch plus head of off white,

definite hop tones dominating from the start, notes of citrus as well as a juicy sort of smell were both very evident from the beginning. However, there was more to it then that, in fact there was a nice malted back that made up the bulk of the aroma once it started to warm.but the juice came back and sealed the deal with a puckering hop note.

On-tap at the tasting room.

A - Pours a orange/copper color, off-white head, some whisps on top, spotty lacing.

S - Nice citrus, pine, slight floral bitterness, papaya. The pineapple adds a nice sweetness to the bitterness, which I enjoy.

T - Similar to the nose, bitter citrus/pine/floral notes, pineapple sweetness, bitter finish.

M - Light, crisp and smooth, oily finish.

D - I really like the added pineapple into this one, as it makes the drinkability much better. Give it a try!
