Enjoy by 6/20/20. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours an amber/auburn/mahogany with ruby hues; mild haze but there's still some clarity to it; light khaki head that falls leaving great bubbly retention and nice lacing. The aromas have a subtle blend of banana, bubblegum, coffee and cocoa. Yeasts and malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose for the most part. More banana. The coffee and chocolate comes through in the finish without dominating. Hints of orange peel in the mix. Low to no bitterness. Subtle sweetness. Finishes clean. Yeasts do their thing. Solid malt backbone. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's fluffy, slightly creamy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a pretty nice brew. It's pretty clean. Balance is the key with this one. The chocolate, orange peel and cold brew coffee all come through without dominating. It's enjoyable stuff. I appreciate how unique this is, especially for the style. It all works.
