    Pours opaque with a finger of white foam. Fleeting foam does leave sticky, thick lacing behind.

    Aroma of bright lemon and orange; the citrus shines. In the background is ripe mango and papaya cocktail. Hints of herbal. Dank

    Taste is more ripe tropical fruits with the dankness taking it up a notch. Finishes with a surprising bitterness that may be more resin than anything. Burn of alcohol.

    Medium body with light carbonation. Juice that quickly gives way to dry.

    This beer is solid. Very juicy and smooth but there are hints of alcohol, which is something HB usually hides well. Definitely would have this beer again as it is better a couple weeks old than fresh. Enjoy!
