Banana comes to mind on first sip. Good lacing on glass. Little boozey.

Poured from a can into a pint glass, pours a clouded amber, left fairly thin head that leaves a moderate amount of lacing.

Smells very fruity, tropical fruits and some citrus.

Tastes grassy, pungent, with a strong bitter finish. Sweet aftertaste, it struck me as a little odd, felt like it was sweetened purposefully.

Medium body, medium-high carbonation. I dislike hoppy beer so I can't really rate to style, but I give them a try anyway.
