12oz bottle (date stamp 330 3 6565 1801) served in a milkshake pilsner glass.

Appearance: Clear bright gold with a hint of amber. Lots of carbonation coming up through the beer. Persistent 1/8" white foam with equally persistent big strands and sheets of lacing all over the glass. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Mango!!! Lots of tropical fruit coming off of this beer.

Taste: Bitter, lots of fresh cut grapefruit citrus, some tropical fruit. Malt is cracker-like, not sweet at all. Finish is lingering citrus and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Very dry. Some hop oil sticking to the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: A very hoppy beer - but not a bitter hop wallop. Strong emphasis on aroma hops with this one with a simple hop flavor profile. Well crafted and well done. Interestingly though, due to the dryness and weaker malt backbone, I find one is enough. It's strong flavor wears out my palate such that I don't want another one right away. Another one later on, but not one right now.
