Poured from a can into a shaker pint. Pours amber in color. A bit hazy. Thin white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Smell is mainly citrus. A lot of orange juice and some mango. A bit of caramel. Taste follows the nose. A nice breadiness in there, although the malty sweetness is a tad overwhelming. Very sharp bitterness. It could be a bit harsh and lingers for a little while. Mouthfeel is pretty good, if a little thick. Overall a very good amber. The hop profile is very similar to Jai Alai, but maybe less on the tropical fruit side. It reminds me of a tamer version of Arrogant Bastard.
