Tap pour into Tulip glass. Nice hazy honey look. Decent head with minimal retention but nice sticky foamy lacing all the way down. I had this after a #4 and it was a bit underwhelming after that. Nice dank tropical fruit aroma and nice understated flavor. Beautiful creamy mouthfeel. The alcohol was very well hidden. Delicious beer
