This one has been on the top of my " wants " list since I started getting into craft beer since the Summer of 2012. And now, It is finally in my possession. Let's see if it loves up to the hype.

Look - Whew, you could smell this fucker the second the top popped. Pours a clearish copper/amber mix with a two finger slightly off white head that sticks around and leaves a beautiful amount of lacing as you drink alllll the way up to the thick spider-web coating upon finish.

Smell - This is hands down the best nose I have ever gotten out of a beer. Pineapple, Mango, and Pear juice are straight up on you like a hypothetical Mike Tyson upper cut to the face. Only with pleasure and not pain. The malts balance well too.

Taste - The taste is of a strong tropical fruit juice hit with a touch of the maltiness to keep it interesting and a smack of banana smoothie that lingers around forever.

Feel - Light creamy body with just a touch of carbonation. Coats the mouth like a delicious smoothie and could happily have it sit for an hour.

Overall - The was well worth the wait. Where was this brew all my life? perfection in a bottle!
