22 oz. bottle via trade. Thanks again, John! Pours a cloudy but bright orange with a cm of cream-colored head that settles unevenly and leaves some lace streaks. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, pine, pineapple, caramel malts, florals, and a bit of tropical fruit. Flavor of pine, herbs, grapefruit, caramel malts, pineapple, papaya, florals, bubblegum, and a hint of peppery spice. Medium-bodied, with an alternating sweet and bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. I can’t tell if this is generously called complex or less generously ’all over the place.’ Still, I enjoyed it.
