Pours a dark amber from a bottle, thin white head quickly dissipating but leaving some lacing. Aroma of mixed tropical fruit, a little pine note in the background. Flavor similar, some guava, mango, a hint of caramel maltiness, lots of bitterness. Rather well balanced, not too alcohol-y. Good beer.
