In the glass, a dense, white head sits atop a hazy, deep golden-hued pour. Substantial adjuncts were used for enhanced mouthfeel accompanied by a heavy pungent and punchy aroma with notes of Grapefruit, Mango, Guava, Pineapple, along with deep citrus and heavy tropical fruit. Upon sampling, the palate is met with a light bitterness with no “hop burn” on the throat. Best drink this one fresh!

Available in early November in 16oz tall boy cans (4-packs) and on draft.
