Hazy orange pour, 1 finger of head. Dank aroma and taste: fruit, mango, citrus, fairly strong malt bill as well. Well made, but your palate may need a breather after drinking it.

Pours cloudy and juice like, golden straw color. Nose is interesting. Tons of ripe pineapple. The alcohol is definitely there but it blends very well with the tropical fruits. Its just enough to let you know its a big beer but not too much so as to overpower. Taste is somewhat similar, reminds me a bit of a beachy mixed drink. Frankly the best way I can describe it is hoppy pineapple juice. Again, the alcohol shows up just enough to let you know the strength of this brew but it does a great job remaining in balance.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that left lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass and a thin collar around the edge.
S: Strong aromas of citrus and gooseberries are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is packed with lots of flavors of citrus and tropical fruit hops. Pineapples and gooseberries seem to stand out in particular.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O:This beer has an explosion of aromas and flavors from the hops, but essentially has no bitterness.

Serving type: on-tap
