3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear amber gold with a tan head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma starts out quite full of resin with backing notes of light fruits, light pine and a decent amount of sweet grains. Flavor began with a strong resin note but mellows to grapefruit, other light fruits and a strong sweet grain backbone.

Nose is big female sweaty feety assy funky hops, caramel malt, mango, citrus. Tastes rich, very caramelly, with resiny hops, fruit, and a smooth finish with well hidden alcohol. Medium palate heft and complexity, and some late heat emerges, along with a slight hop domination over the malt.
