4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2013 On cask at PP Carlsbad. Same glowing 14 karat/burnt orange pour as the original but the aroma and flavor display some unique additions due to the inclusion of the extra ingredients. Sweet and sour qualities from the pineapple, tart and juice, with a moderate spicy heat make their way to the nose and tongue. Nice amount of capsiason and the extra hop additions keep this bright, citrusy, and leafy. Increased complexity, not at all muddled...nicely done!
