Pours a hazy pinkish orange with thick, dense cream colored head, much of which sticks around for the whole glass. Smell: passion fruit, sugared mango and more pale malt sweetness, light musty graininess, stonefruit note. Taste: pale malt sweetness, biscuit note, passion fruit throughout the sip, citrus peel, lemon, finishing tangy / snappy. Medium bodied, creamy + fluffy feel, drying + semi sticky finish. Tasty.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Classy label.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Big off white head. Great surface foam. Minimal lacing.

Smell - Great fruit aroma. More mango than passion fruit. Grainy backdrop.

Taste - Much less fruity. A bit of mango up front, but drops off to just grain after that. Mild bitterness. A hint of earthy hops.

Mouthfeel - Very grainy. Light tasting for 8%.

Overall - A disappointing transition from nose to taste. Its flavor is just dull

A combination of amber and gold with a huge head into my glass. I like that it's a collaboration between Mikkeller and Tiger Baby.

Old-school pine tar blast upfront with a touch of buttery malt underneath. Smells like an APA on steroids. An IPA?

Citrus notes come through upfront. It's brewed with mango and passionfruit. The mango is more apparent and works well with the hops used.

Lingering mango and passionfruit make up the mouthfeel. Alcohol heat is there too.

Very nice. I would prefer it if the alcohol level was dialed down. However, if you age it, you will probably taste more of the mango and passionfruit and less of the alcohol itself.

a - poured a two-fingers thick fluffy, light tan head into a tulip glass that left a thin ring and sheeting throughout. the body was an orange-amber color.
s - big citrus nose with passion fruit coming through.
t - big citrus flavors again with some breadiness and grain coming through to balance it out.
m - bubbly and crisp.
o - very pleasant and a big APA i'd go to again.
