Clear golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Nose is tangerine, pineapple, essentially the tropics in a blender. Mouthfeel crisp, mild alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet tropical notes with the spicy tang and hoppy bite. Wicked.

Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland
Hazy amber color with medium head. The strong malty character of this beer and medium sweetness level, although both lovely, label this as an old school IIPA; the hops are strong, more resiny than else, a bit orangey too; the malts also have a mild biscuity note. The caramel still dominates the final. The alcohol is well conceived.
Excellent powerful beer, I wouldn’t drink more than a glass of it per session though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (22oz $5.50) Hazy golden with smallish white head that disappears. Somewhat sweet, malty, but turns much more bitter than I like. The bitterness is not sudden, but builds and lingers and ends up tasting metallic. Not balanced IMHO.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has some floral and fruity notes, but does smell a little old and earthy. Taste has that earthy bitterness that comes up when hops are past their prime.
