Bottle. Rusty amber with a moderate, fizzy white head. Aroma is hoppy but not the hop bomb I was expecting. Tropical fruit, mango, peach, caramel, light grapefruit and sweet malt in the nose. Taste is big tropical fruit, soft pine, grapefruit juice, peach, sweet malt, soft caramel and melon. Body is medium with soft carbonation and a slight syrupyness to it.
