12 oz bottle poured into a guinness pint glass.

A - Pale, hazy golden orange with a half finger head that quickly moves to a thin lace.

S- tropical fruit, mango especially, with some pine.

T - similar to the smell, with some malt balance, a resinous finish

M - low carbonation, decent heft, slightly sticky as it warms.

O - fairly delicious.
