Appearance: Pours a clouded-to-turbid, orange-yellow body with a medium-small, near white head.

Smell: A tangy-scented, pineapple-pine combination with touches of tangerine and spicy florals with a tone of raw wheat and grist dust.

Taste: It's acidic, juicy-feeling and a little sweet. Pineapple juice stirred up with a vitamin-rich citrus drink powder, moderate pine with even lesser hints of spice, florals. Medium bitterness. Tangy, tartish finish with some alcoholic heat.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, fairly smooth. Medium carbonation.

Overall: I wasn't overly fond of this installment into the AA series. A semi-sorta step up from #3, but it was no #2.

Pours a hazy golden orange with two fingers of frothy white head, lots of lacing.
Smells of ripe pineapple, citrus.
Taste follows ripe pineapple, sweet orange, very little bitter citrus.
Heavy side of medium bodied, smooth, no trace of the 8% ABV.
Overall a pretty tasty one. For a brewery that has been going just a little over a year they are putting out some pretty good stuff.

12oz can from Charlie’s II (Acworth, GA). 13.99/ 6 pack. Canned 12/3/18. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku. Enjoyed 12/7/18.

Pours a hazy, muted yellow with a generous cap of dense white froth. The head shrinks slowly, leaving a fluffy collar, some surface wisps and a few scattered trails of lacing.

Aromas of lemon, tropical fruit, slight pine and faint sugar.

Tastes juicy and hoppy with low bitterness. Pineapple, lemon, a little pine sap, pepper, vague mint and a kiss of cakey sweetness. Delicious.

Smooth medium feel with pillowy carbonation. The aftertaste is only mildly bitter with more juicy tropical and citrus hop notes.

Wild Leap does it again. This fourth release in their Alpha Abstraction series is another winner. I believe this is also the first Denali single hopped beer I’ve tried and I’m a fan.
