Pours a dull pale amber with lots of creamy tan foam on top. The speed at which the carbonation bubbles are passing through the beer does not reveal the syrupy thickness of this one.

Pineapple dominates the nose with touches of wood as well as other fruit sweetness. The flavor matches the smell perfectly, with lots of intensely sweet pineapple and light, maybe Galaxy, hops. Oak and molasses deaden the fruit sweetness before a very bitter finish drives home.
