Original recipe rating : 4.1
Rating v1.1 now.
Delicious impeccible gold pour, admirable head.
More tropical-heavy nose of papaya, grapefruit, and tangerine, hints of pastel candy and floral notes, much less emphasis on the pine compared to the last version.
Flavor, again, presents a profound tropical bottom end, papaya, soft mango, sweet flowers, lime rind, canned tangerine, highly floral and, admittedly, beautiful complex linger with lime rind.
This, ultimately, is a step up from the original recipe, yet the absence of piney-ness has been replaced with hoppy resin (which is similar yet sometimes interchangeable).
This new version presents more tropical fruit than the other. A much more "ripe" flavor, but still wields the bitterness well and dryness too.
Impermanence is the beauty of life. I was skeptical of this "new version", but it’s still well balanced. I just miss the pine!
