3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber thanks to trade with mikericm! Pours a hazy golden brown with thin off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet fruity tropical notes, mango and orange, hints of caramel malt underneath. Taste is more balanced toward the malt, but still tropical sweetness, bittersweet finish. A bit of a boozy burn, mild carbonation, pretty darn nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a somewhat hazy chestnut with a fairly thick buff head. Hoppy aroma has a definite overtone of mango. Flavor has a hoppy, woody, bitter core and adds on mango plus a little malt and a hint of smoky caramel. Texture is fairly firm and fizzy, leaving a hoppy and wood-bitter finish with more than a trace of mango. Different, satisfying, tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy amber pour with a small off-white head. Bitter, hoppy, and a hint of mango aromas. Taste is very dry and I didn’t like it at first. After it warmed a bit, I think it softened some and it became more enjoyable. Not my favorite, but very solid.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bomber: A thick creamy head stuck around with nice lacing. The cloudy copper color was much darker than I expected. The flavor was fruity, but a little too sweet and thick. The finish was bitter, but a bit too harsh. It fell a little short in almost every aspect. I had high expectations only to be disappointed.
