Dal9000 (437) - Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2016
At SG75. Pours peach color in a snifter. Short thick white head. Aroma of citrus cream. Creamy mouthfeel with citrus hop flavor then a burst of pine in the middle. Very clean aftertaste without the palette wrecking that some hoppy beers have. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

tillmac62 (621) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Clear amber pour with a dash of garnet. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of pineapple, orange and mango over biscuit with a touch of caramel and a subtle spicy spruce. Light body with a smooth texture. Slightly below normal carbonation level with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a stronger finish. Outstanding flavor profile that is well balanced, complex and laid back a bit in intensity. It begins with a wave of citrus and tropical hop flavor (orange, mango and a hint of pineapple) that is over a subtle bready biscuit sweetness. The middle yields a bit of pine and spicy spruce aspects over a somewhat light moderate bitterness. The bitterness is rind and pine based. The finish is a slow fade of orange rind that is slightly dry. Alcohol remains completely covered.

Aroma of tropical fruit and pine resin wafts from the light orange body and white foam. Bitterness is present but doesn’t overwhelm. Nice flavor of fruits, citrus, and pine.
