4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Man in the moon.
Cloudy brownish orange with a short off white head leaving very nice lacings.
Big fresh tropical fruity aroma with fresh mango, peach, some grapefruit and lichi with caramel, cookie and pine.
Taste is fruity with lots of mango, peach, sweet grapefruit, blood orange, caramel and toasty malt with a resiny bitter ending. A bit short in the taste.
Big but not overcoming mouthfeel and the carbonation tickles nicely.
This is all about tropical fruits, but not in a cloying way and its very refreshing.

(Draught at Man in the Moon, 20111115) The beer poured reddish orange and cloudy. Its head was medium sized, white and long lasting. Aroma had pine and exotic fruits. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, fruitiness, saltiness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was dry and bitter. Aroma was good but the flavour was too bitter and the beer was too dry as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 Sampled @ SBWF 2011 on September 29. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Smell is pleasant and fresh. There’s some caramel but the first team players are the citrus and fresh fruit notes from the hops. Taste is dry and refreshing. It has some ash and some sweetness from the malts. Bitterness is prominent and adds to a good fresh beer.
