22 ounce bottle into a tulip snifter. Had 8/10/17.

Pours a gold/orange color, a little hazy, with a one and a half inch foamy head and a good amount of foamy lacing. Smells of orange, pineapple, mango, some grapefruit, yeast, malt, a spicy aroma. The taste brings in more tropical and citrus fruits- pineapple, tangerine, orange, grapefruit, lemon, mango, malt. There’s a fair amount of bitterness up front that mellows into a sweet note on the finish. Smooth, a solid medium body, well carbonated.

Bursting with tropical and citrus aromas and flavors. Well balanced, the malt supports the hops very well. It’s fairly straightforward, but really enjoyable. Good collaboration.

22 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: big creamy fluffy white head sits atop a burnt orange slightly hazy body.

S: lots of candied hops pineapple, cantaloupe, lemon, grass, resiny qualities coming through as well. Smells a little sweet as well.

T: this beer is juicy lots of melon honeydew, cantaloupe, a little papaya, definitely pineapple. The alcohol is a little noticeable.

M: medium to fuller bodies decent carbonation a little alcohol slickness. Clings a little bit to the tongue.

O: this beer is pretty amazing it's juicy as hell huge fruit flavors nice rounded bitterness just wish the alcohol was dialed back a little.

A: The beer is hazy dark golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass along with streaks of lacing running down the sides.
S: Light aromas of pine are present in the nose along with underlying notes of blueberries and papayas.
T: The taste has a mélange of blueberry, grapefruit, papaya, and pine flavors.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer drinks rather easily considering its strength and doesn't taste nearly anything that is something like 9.5% abv.

22oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange with a small amount of head. Good amount of lacing. Fruity aroma of tangerine, mango and guava along with some pine and caramel malts. The taste is pine and caramel malts followed up by sweet tropical and citrus fruits. Tangerine, guava, light pineapple and orange peel. Pine, caramel and orange peel finish. Oily mouthfeel and medium body. Somewhat boozey. Worth grabbing once in a while.
