  • A: Crystal clear, rich golden ale. Small, soft white bubbles of average retention.

    S: Muted pineapple, orange, and a soft sweet. Not aggressive, more refined aroma. Some breadiness kinda of finishes it off.

    T: Not a fruit forward at all. More like honey and spice, with low tropical flavors in the background. The sweet and bitter offset but are pronounced together. No lingering aftertaste. Alcohol is swirled in with all the other elements.

    O: For a brewer that known for it's slash and burn style DIPA, this one is kinda of sophisticated brew. Reminds me more of Bells Oracle than a West Coast style. No doubt that tropical notes are present, but there's a complete different thing going on. I really like this brew.

  • Pours perfectly clear with a half inch of slightly off-white foam. Retention is as expected for the style, lightly frothing as it recedes. Lacing sheets, thickly but recedes to wispy lines.

    Aroma is interesting. Sweetness is pleasant but only behind the hops. Spice and herbal mixes with tropical to create a complex scent in which all bide for attention.

    Taste is more of the same. The aroma leaves little to the imagination but it is so good that doesn't matter.

    Medium body with medium carbonation. The high alcohol doesn't impede.

    This is a nice beer with subtle complexity. The big alcohol is well hidden making for a devilish treat. Enjoy!
