I had the distinct pleasure of the company of this beer at Volstead and was rewarded with a pint that immediately had me contemplating the next one. Lush amber with a good finger of head. A good noseful of tropical aromas and spruce that carried over to the flavours. Punchy and boatloads of flavour. I wish there was more of this beer in the domestic market.

#4 hoptoberfest at the volstead - very hoppy with hints of tropical fruit. perhaps a little too much on the astringent side, but nice.
