Sampler pour on tap at the brewery (Gary, IN). Pours a well hazed amber orange hue, darker dulled middle with nice orange amber glow on the edges. Frothy whitish head films well, sticks around well and laces nicely. Aromas are potent and hoppy, throwing firm florals and fruit character, touches of white grape, grapefruit, and melon. Nice mango, touches of florals and bready malts. Some crisp bitter florals, grass and gentle bready and cereal malt beneath. Some vibrant aromas. Initial is fruity, showing tropical fruit, mango and decent bitterness. Nice crisp cereal and bready malt is dry, touch of body with some firm bitterness as we move on. Middle is a touch sweet, but quickly moving to firm bitterness, florals and citrus, big tropical fruit is mango, gentle warmth and decent to middling bitterness as we finish. A potent fruity and complex hop character comes home to roost here, with good tropical fruit, nice flavor, decent to middling bitterness to support without a big or brooding malt body beneath to interfere. Tasty stuff.
