3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle offered @ home via rotefridge. Pours a touch hazy, dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Tropical fruit forward hops in the aroma, especially melon, mango, and tangerine. Some spicy / piney hops in there as well. Pretty creamy and smooth mouth feel. Definitely orange and melons in the flavor. Maybe a touch old, as some of the spiciness appears to have faded a bit which leads to be of bready and bitter notes. Probably a 3.8-3.9 fresh, but I’m going to peg it at a 3.6 right now.

Aroma of complex hop notes... floral, resin, mango, pineapple and citrus. Fairly bitter. The taste is equally as complex... resin, mango, peach, citrus and a faint toffee note. The bitterness is assertive and lingers. Medium-full bodied. Good beer.
