3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The body was orange amber in color with a slight haze. The carbonation appeared lively, and the head was two fingers thick, and very well retained. The smell was deceptively honey like at first, but then gave way to herbal hops. The taste was very tropical, with Mandarin orange, pineapple, and mango flavors, The bitterness was atypically modest for the style. The finish however provided a good deal of hop based dryness. It was a little thinner than medium bodied. Nicely approachable.
