Nose
Tropical fruits – pineapple, peach and mango – over biscuity malt.
Palate
Sweet, estery and warming, with rich floral and tropical flavours.
Finish
Drying but still sweet, with a touch of burnt malt. The plentiful hops at last get a chance to shine.
Comment
An intriguing and powerful golden beer echoing the American style where strength and hops both aspire to new levels. The excessive alcohol tends to spoil the balance for me but, as the label says: ‘This is an aggressive beer. We don't care if you don't like it.' So that's me told.
