look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75 = 3.76/5
Densely hazy and cloudy, almost opaque, dark gold color, with a fine mist of yeast. Creamy and frothy beige 3-4 finger head, lasting around 20 minutes, with good legs and a high reaction to a swirl. Flavors of pineapples, mangos, grapefruits, pine, grass, caramel, butter, sweet grains and floral hops. Silky medium body with moderate crispy carbonation. Medium to strong strength finish, zesty tropical fruits, leafy and herbal, more towards dry hops, with some clovey and orange peels lingering on the tongue. Great freshness, must have some Belgian yeast in there. Well balanced and intensified for a double, yeah they upgraded keeping the same ABV. Solid flavors and body, very smooth and drinkable. Overall very good quality craft.
