  • Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe from a can with date of 07/27/20.

    Pours cloudy/hazy with a huge billowing, white foam. Rocky top and frothy as it meanders back, slowly to the liquid. Semi-thick lacing that leaves beautiful rings around the glass.

    Aroma is fantastic: pineapple, mango, orange, and sweet. Papaya and light herbal come through late.

    Taste of sweet orange and mango. Herbal/green and lots of resin, especially late producing some bitterness and a burn in the back of the throat. Subsequent sips seem to mellow out, making for a smooth, easy drinking beer.

    Medium body and carbonation. Juicy up front but dries up some.

    The aroma is the star of this beer. I really like the lacing on the glass as well. The taste is solid but not as complex or as enriching as the aroma. Nonetheless the taste is solid. The body and carbonation are spot on for the style. The hop burn and bitterness could be toned down some. Would have this anytime I have the chance. Enjoy!
