Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light - some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some piney - grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish, light caramel and faint fruitiness, some piney and grapefruit hoppyness. Really nice aroma, but flavor/finish lacks fruitiness and bitterness. OK APA - bit too much caramel
