Murky chestnut with meringue white froth that rims and speckles.
Juicy melon, papaya, and orange nose with a touch of yeast and maybe acetone.
Brown scone and apricot compote with Midori, gooseberry, and kumquat hops.
Lime zest + sorbet end and twinkly linger.
Soft, medium, chewy, creamy.

Some jumping fruit flavors that are actually new to me - don't think I've had Amarillo, Citra and Nelson Sauvin in combination before. Still, not as bright and crisp as I expected. Malts get noticed, and it's a bit underattenuated, so comes across with a real ale buzz about it (from bottle conditioning, no doubt.) And the IBUs are on the low side.

A round and gentle tropical fruit IPA.

Teku glass.
A: Straw yellow/light orange, hazy with big white medium lastin head. Good lacing.
S: Tropical fruits aroma (passion fruit, mango), sweet citrus hoppy aroma (mainly orange), some low pine and grassy aroma - mainly in the background, also noticable quite big malt backbone - caramel, bread, low biscuit;
T: moderate bitterness - noticable some pine, grassy and light herbal flavours, bitterness is moderate and not too long, it's well balanced with sweetness and malty character. Definetely dry and bitter finish.
M: dry beer, medium body, medium carbonation, light alcohol warming
O: Nice beer, but there are lots of nice beers. There's not too much bitterness as for DIPA, the bitter character is also quite short. Amarillo hops are noticable by it's indirect sweet charcter - in this case it should be balanced with some bitter hops. Nelson Sauvin adds refreshing and dry character. Aroma is definetely better than the taste. What I like is this is really refreshing and drinkable beer.
