Still, headless and frankly unappealing. Very tropical, fresh nose. Melons, mangoes, passionfruit and clementines. Whilst malt is dominant in the mouth hops to make an appearance immediately but dissipate leaving thick tangerine and light spice on the tongue. This is a pretty interesting beer. However a little light carbonation would go a long way in my opinion. It just lacks a certain bite.
