Slightly hazy, orangy amber, with a Finger + of off white long lasting, creamy head that sticks to the glass. Sweet floral, almost honey like, and tropical fruit on the nose. A good amount of caramel malt base, and a lightly toasted bread. Flavor is balanced, leaning toward the malt, nice bitterness that hits almost immediately, and some tropical notes, as well, but pretty subdued, really. There is an almost spicy, capsaicin vibe, that's a bit off putting on the finish. I wonder how long this has been on the shelf? No date on the bottle, guys. The feel is average carbonation, medium body, creamy, dry on the finish. Not digging the aftertaste, if it was a pepper beer, that would be one thing.

12oz can, no apparent freshness date
A - hazed peach colored ale with a creamy white head that fades to a faom
S - hoppy nose with grass, orange & grapefruit zest, tangerine, pine, mango,caramel malt
T - quite zesty and fruity citrus; notes of grapefruit, orange, & tangerine rind, caramel malt, honey, mango, and a piney finish
M - very resinous medium body, dry on the palate and not overly bitter, which quickly entices another drink
O - a brewery I'm not too familiar with, but this is very good. It might open the door to me trying more of their offerings in the future.

From 32GP. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Sword 5. BB date dec 2016. Very tropically fruity. Bitterness noticeably lower than expected for the style, but its stilly very tasty and that makes it dangeoursly drinkable
