look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pour is a nice deep tangerine with a golden glow. Translucent. Finger of dense off white head, lingering.

Nose is sharp and citrusy, with strong hop backbone. Some grapefruit and mango, and some piney sticky scent.

Taste is so crazy juicy and thick. Flavors of tangerine, grapefruit, mango, honey, and papaya are noted. Blends perfectly into a crisp but not too biting hop. Just a little bit of pine and stickiness.

Feel is lusciously medium thick. Really coats the mouth, but not syrupy. Truly like juice.

Just a wonderful beer. Perfectly balanced. Lovely flavors. Not super boozy, but potent at the same time. I want more.
