4.45/5  rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: The beer is very cloudy whitish yellow in color and poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving just a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of grapefruit, stone fruit, mangos, and papayas are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of strong flavors of citrusy and tropical fruits with grapefruit and stone fruit standing out in particular along with notes of mangos, papayas, and passionfruit. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has both dominating aromas and flavors of citrusy and tropical fruit hops. It tastes nothing like a beer that is 11% abv.

Serving type: can

4.53/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

A: Pours an extremely murky milky golden honey in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and moderate bright yellow + medium golden yellow + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Just shy of strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/tangerine, tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, and dank resinous hops over the top of moderate aromas of pale + biscuit + honey + oat malts with a light to moderate amount of honey sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of pale + biscuit + honey + oat malts with moderate amount of honey sweetness. That is followed by just shy of strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/tangerine, tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, and dank resinous hops which impart a hint of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving lingering citrus + tropical + dank hop flavors.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Soft/fluffy almost creamy with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Drinks extremely easily with well hidden alcohol - I would never have guessed this beer is 11% ABV just from drinking it. Really soft/fluffy + creamy mouthfeel and a very pleasant + enjoyable hop profile. Really good and glad a buddy was able to bring me some back from Pittsburgh.

16 oz can fresh Pour
Golden straw color with fluffy white head, totally impermeable haze
Great lacing on the glass
Strong dank and tropical fruit aroma, intense
Taste starts with intense tropical fruit, a little funk, then dank and citrus. So much going on. Mouthfeel is super creamy. Alcohol is bearable.
