Big pineapple sweetness, grapefruit, and resin in the aroma.

Flavor is more resiny, but the tropical and citrus notes so come through quite well. Finish is earthy and fairly bitter. Significant caramel malt backbone.

A more full bodied version of fantasy factory. Fruit flavors are more pronounced but the hops are just as fresh tasting and dank as you would expect from karbon 4. I think this should be rated in the mid nineties for sure.
