Poured from a 12 oz can into an Alesmith tulip

L: Cloudy golden pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head leave a great deal of lacing.

S; Grapefruit and citrus... tropical fruits. Juicy.

T/F: Follows the nose. Dank and juicy... grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. Mild melon and more citrus. Medium bodied... zesty carbonation. Bitterness very well balanced.

O: Another super drinkable juice bomb from Fiddlehead. Great flavor... super beer.

Pours a hazy gold with a very fluffy three finger head. That head lasts for quite a while before breaking. Excellent lacing.

Smell is citrusy, with tropical fruits and a strong malt backbone.

Taste is like the nose, citrusy and tropical now with a tiny amount of piney. A strong malt presence is also quite noticable.

Feel is quite nice with a medium body and mild to moderate carbonation. There is a nice tropical fruit aftertaste and the finish is a touch dry.

A very nice beer, but to my liking it doesn't hold up against Second Fiddle. This is nice and enjoyable, and is a damn tasty beer though.

Nothing too intense going on here (regular brownish mostly yellow pour, regular bitterness, regular booze flavor), but perhaps a little light on the flavor overall.

Great taste. Unique hoppy taste although I can tell it's from the Fiddlehead family.

Can dated 10/16/17 into pint glass. Pours a hazy yellowish-amber with an off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Initial impression is juicy citrus, caramel, tropical fruit, pineapple, and a slight pine-y hops bitterness. Very smooth, nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is quite hefty; carbonation is on the light side. Finish is sweet fading to a slight bitterness on the back of the tongue. Very, very well done.
