sonnycheeba (4281) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle thanks to snoworsummer. Pours somewhat hazy, bright amber with white head. Aroma is mango, pineapple, dank, floral notes, faint caramel, faint oak, light toast, and some citrus peel. Flavor is extremely smooth and balanced given the hop content and ABV; bready and caramel malt base with layered floral and grassy hops along with tons of citrus esters. Medium body and carbonation.
