Good. Strong pine notes. Surprisingly resiny for the relatively low ABV. Malt base present but second fiddle. Nice not overpowering bitterness.

Pours a dark, brownish-gold with small, fast dissipating head. Much citrus and floral in the aroma. Taste is fairly balanced between hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Could stand to be a bit more hoppy. Not bad at all. The rather high alcohol content is well-hidden.

Pours a finger of head on a clear, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is a wonderful mixture of orange, mango and grapefruit.
The taste has moderate to strong pine bitterness throughout with peeks of pineapple sweetness to balance it out.
The texture has soft edges with moderate carbonation.
It’s loaded with bitterness at around 100 IBUs but still retains great flavor.
