3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2014 Bottle thanks to csteele2144. Had a bit of age on it (B283), but I knew that going in. Pours hazy orange amber, small off white head, nice lacing. Aroma is passion fruit, grapefruit, pine, dankness, caramel. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, dank. Somewhat hard on the finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty hot. Need a fresher one at some point. Rerate from B323, much fresher. Aroma has a buttery note to it that I typically find from citra hops. Very dank, tropical and flavorful. Lacking that bitter harness on the finish that the previous sample had, and not so hot either. There is some ABV burn, but it is fairly muted. Better, still not awesome.

Bottle gift from SJ. Very well blended brew. Nice bold notes of mango, floral hop, big time Citra and caramel malt. Citra has become one of my favs.

Quite outstanding beer full of tropical fruit flavors and some slight earthiness / grassiness from the hops. Has a really sweet malt base that doesn’t interfere with the hops, but more or less just helps them stand out. Very good.
