3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into my Duvel glass. Hazed dark golden color with a tall, off-white (hints of yellow) head. Spice and tropical fruit of Amarillo really come out in the aroma. Hints of bananas, alcohol, and pale malt in the background. Light sweetness from the malt, but quite masked by the bitterness. Wood/pine bitterness overtakes everything from the middle to the finish. The linger is really only left to the hop oils and some spice from the alcohol and the hops. 6/10
