12oz bottle, fresh and served in a snifter glass. Pours a darker caramel amber body, one finger white head, good retention, not much lacing. Smell is toffee, caramel, pineapple, a bit of citrus. Mostly sweet and slightly boozy aromas. Flavour is also on the sweeter malt side with caramel and toffee sweetness throughout, slight pineapple flavours and a bitter resin halfway through and persisting into the finish. Good carbonation, medium body, moderate resinous bitterness on the backend that is balanced out by the fairly strong sweetness.

Brown in color with an inch of densely packed and creamy light beige head. The aroma is of heavy pine to citrus hops and bready light malt. I'm tasting a nice wallop of grassy to piney and lightly citrus hops and crackery light malt. The mouth is very resinous, thick, and chewy.

Pour looks sexy as it comes in an orange and peach color, head foams up to about 1/3" and then the hop oils jettison that shit up and out. Aroma mixed some wet hop like green notes with a humid hangover.

Taste dropped lots of bittering hops, the malt bill is substantial without going into excessive roast or caramel like qualities. Alcohol stands down, hops stand up, nothing exotic, just a big medley here. Price is right too.

A-Dark orange, almost brown in colour, an off white head disappeared quickly
S-Some fruit character, but mostly light alcohol and a subtle sweetness
M-I quite enjoyed the medium to light body of this beer with a smooth carbonation
T-Very sweet upfront and as an after taste. The bitterness only comes in way at the end
O-This is a drinkable beer, too sweet for my liking, needs a little more bitterness to balance things out.
