Vertical with Fresh version
Aroma has fruity hops, some resin and mango. Also hints of gooseberry bush. Flavour is slightly sweet and rather fruity with mango, some caramel and gooseberry bush. This one was better and actually felt more fresh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber, thick white head. Nose is heavy on the resiny hops with tropical notes, biscuity malt and caramel. Taste begins with malt with sweetish-caramel notes, then develops into a nice hoppy punch with spicy tropical fruits (mainly grapefruit) and a powerful, but delicate, bitterness. Finish is a return of the sweetish-bready malt mixed with resiny bitterness. Soft carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Good brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brilliant amber/orange color. Big puffy white head. Slow to fall with plenty of lacing left behind. Nice bouquet of orange, passion fruit, slight citrus, caramel and malt. Citrusy flavor with a nice hop presence and a bit of biscuity malt. Prickly bitterness on the tongue with a slightly bitter and sweet finish. Very good.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2012 Pours deep gold into a Sam glass. White head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Pine and resin aromas. Thin with sweet caramel, toffee and tropical fruit upfront turning to grassy resin before the lasting citrus finish.
