Well balanced brew at 6.5% ABV with plenty of select malted barley,and an aggressive dose of premium hops. Pours with a full head of foam and a rich orange shade. Full aroma of the citrus and pine. Very flavorful hop profile although full backbone of malted barley to hide all the bitterness. Lots of hoppiness yet well balanced.

Pours a nice clear dark yellow with a good off white head that laces the glass as you drink it. The smell is full of tropical fruits and a little bit of pine, but not much. The taste was a bit more understated than the smell with some hop characteristics coming through on the finish. Not very clean but it did have some tasty flavors.

Slightly hazed honey apricot colored with streams of fine bubbles quickly rising up. Heavy carbonation, big detraction. Had to take several minutes to pour this will waiting for the foam to settle. Aroma of floral hops and cinnamon, some mint notes.

Strong hops flavors, assertive bitterness, heavy pine and grapefruit rind flavors, tending a bit toward harsh. Some mild yeast notes in the background. Subtle malt notes of toffee and cinnamon, this is heavy handed hop bitterness. Even mouthfeel, moderate fullness, very tingly carbonation finish. Good beer, not great. Could use more depth of hops flavors and the carbonation is way too much.
