3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber beer with a thin foamy off-white head. Rather strange nose of menthol, soap, perfume, and funk. Flavor is better with a nice malty caramel sweetness up front followed by a medium bitterness of spruce, pine, and resin. Rather thick on the palate, this is an unusual beer that grows on you.

Appearance: Clear amber body with a dense light tan head. Great retention.

Dude. You should definitely check this out. Aroma is lots of stone fruit: peaches, berries and a little citrus to round it out. Think mangosteen. For those of you who’ve never heard of a mangosteen, you know what to do--Google That S#!%. It has a nice sweetness that assimilates the fruity hop flavor. It’s not particularly bitter... so if you want to warm your hop adverse friends up to the joys of hops...try this one...
