22 oz bottle thanks to Deco again. Served up in a tulip.

A: Pours up a yellowish orange color. Chill haze on the glass and haze in the body as well. Very lazy carbonation activity going on in here. Pour got me over a finger of bright white head. Retention is better than average, and has some stick to it. Lacing is pretty nice, notching the glass all the way down.

S: First impression is earth and grapefruit. Dirty grapefruit if you will. Tropical, but dirty in the best possible way. Melon, like mango, a little grapefruit. Fruity. In that, there is some noticeable, crackery malt. Very nice.

T: Pineapple bomb right here. Lots of it and blantant. No hiding it, no denying it. The mango, grapefruit and melon in the nose is still there but more subdued. Malts are lightly sweet, balancing, and the earthy nature of the beer rides along in there.

M: Medium bodied with a light carbonation to it. Has some bite, stings the throat a bit. This beer is almost silky, but it dries out gradually and completely. ABV is light and barely noticeable. Aftertaste is some grapefruit and pineapple.

OA: Dig it. Didn't really know what to expect from this one. I remember the classic artwork from last year's release, and I have to say my only disappointment is that they changed it. This look is still fun but more importantly the beer is might tasty. Insanely drinkable, big flavor, but doesn't knock you out with overwhelming hop craziness. Still hoppy, still good. Good chit right here.
