De una botella. Gracias al señor Plovmand. Red-brown colour, white head. Sweet pleasantly exotic fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet and quite fruity, exotic, bitter hoppy. Long lasting fruity sweet bitter finish. Good but on the rather too sweet side for me.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle… Mostly clear, golden ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is herbal and fruity – mango, lavender and mild clove – lightly acidic and funky. Full-bodied and mildly creamy with moderate carbonation. Bittersweet, herbal, spicy flavor. Leans bitter, but presents nice tropical fruit sweetness to compliment the citrus pith and rind bitterness. Lengthy bitter finish.
