A: A light copper colored beer with an orange hue and very good clarity. Produces a good head stand of compact off-white bubbles that leave fine ropes of lacing with excellent head retention.
S: Tropical fruit and citrus hops dominate at a medium-strong level bring aromas of sweet orange, melon and peach, under that there is some moderate coconut mixing in with the moderate caramel malt sweetness. The coconut aroma increases as the beer warms becoming dominate at about my serving temp for ales.
T: A strong hops bitterness and tropical fruit hops flavor dominate closely followed by coconut. There is a a light colored fruit flavor from the hops that brings flavors of melon, peach and nectarine. The malt brings a moderate malt sweetness but the balance is fairly strongly towards the bitter.
M: A creamy, medium bodied beer with a medium-strong level of carbonation.
O: The coconut compliments the tropical fruit hops very well making for an usually but enjoyable beer.
