4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells great, tons of citra character, grapefruit and spice. A nice malt undertone is also present. Looks nice, hazy golden with long lasting white head. Upfront more citrus flavor, finishes with some spice, medium malt and a mild lingering bitterness. Amazingly well balanced, hides itís ABV incredibly well without being too bitter at all. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Not the most complex, but amazingly well balanced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to 316nuts. Pours a deep reddish amber. This almost looks like an imperial red ale. Itís somewhat cloudy. The head is medium to small and off-white. Bubbles fade to not much after a minute. The aroma has a lot of caramel malt with some solid citrus and tropical fruit hoppiness. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, white grape, peach, mint. Some spice. Doughy, caramely malt. Mild booze. A little bubblegum. Taste is sweet, but the caramel malt character is restrained. Medium to medium-high bitterness. Good hop flavor. More of the same mix of citrus, tropical and other fruit notes. The mixture of bitter and sweet gets in the way of the hop complexity a bit. It just gets a bit harsh in the finish. Some alcohol heat but itís mostly hidden. Normal carbonation. A bit heavy. Hop oily. Just a little cloying, at least for my taste. This doesnít fit my preferences in the style, but I can appreciate why others like it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear amber slightly copper color with a thin light tan head. Aroma is packed full of fleshy fruit, slightly floral, caramel sweetness. Flavor is a perfect mix of fleshy fruit sweetness, light bitterness. Light to medium in body, but very drinkable. Excellent beer.

Batch 393-394 so not even 3 weeks old .... Cloudy copper/amber pour with a thin off white soapy head and lots of sticky lacing .... aroma smacks you of mangos, pineapple, piney and grapefruity hops .... very juicy hop character as advertised ..... taste is rindy and of mango, pineapple, piney hops and grapefruit rinds ..... has a nice bitter bite to it without killing the juicy citra hop flavors ..... has some caramel malt on the backbone ..... abv hidden well ... this is definitely a loaded brew and def met my expectations .... finishes dry and bitter with a nice spicy hop bite that lingers for a while .... mouthfeel is a little oily
