12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Enjoy by date of June 6, 2015 so likely bottled on January 6, 2015. Clear straw to golden yellow with a finger of off-white head. Aromas of floral, lemon lime, tropical fruit, grassy and pine. Tastes of nice tropical fruit, stone fruit, lemon lime and grapefruit citrus, floral notes, light pine. Well hidden alcohol. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, juicy mouthfeel. Delicious.

dfroms (379) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Tap at Owl Farm. Pours clear pale gold with very little head. Aroma is mango, jackfruit, kiwi, peach, honey, booze, light pine. Taste is slick and boozy mango and candied grapefruit with white grape, spirit-like heat, and slight woody pine on the finish. Tasty but somewhat sweet and bold.

cheap (4271) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Slight haze. Big 22 0z glass for 5 at madmex. Sweeter perfumy aroma. Taste is hops but not in yer face. Wants to be over the top but never gets there. Possibly an apa. Not ipa, not sure how this gets to be a double, heheh. Mild co2. A little dull, but what else can be said.

Floral hops for sure. Pours a great color but smells a bit musty. Drinks like a nice IPA and hides it's 9% ABV well. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS
