Hazy, medium yellow pour with a moderate head. Aroma exceeds the taste. Surprisingly less bitter than expected. Dry finish. Decently crisp product.

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.
