Hazy and cloudy dark golden color with almost no activity. Creamy beige 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with good legs. Flavors pineapples, grapefruits, pine, butter, clove, sweet roasted grains and leafy hops. Creamy full body with a sharp crisp. Strong strength finish, piney and leafy tongue coat, sweet tropical fruits, with light orange peels and spruce tar. A bit coarse but still tolerable, hits the accessibility. Good taste, nicely bodied, decently balanced. Basic American style, well interpreted, overall good quality craft.
