4.19/5 rDev 0%
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.
The color is a bright orange/gold with two fingers of foamy white head and good amount of lacing is left on the glass.
The smell has a bit of citrus fruit flavor. The hops elevate this a bit while giving off a bit a tart aroma that could be shaping up to hit hard with bitter hop flavor.
The taste is piney at first with splash of pine, and some grassy hops that push the bitterness up a bit. Some hints of mango and tangerine reveal themselves as the bitterness wears down. Some malty biscuit flavor comes out before a slight twang at the end.
The feel of this beer is medium bodied and is really drinkable just as most Jack’s Abbey beers are. Crisp and refreshing this beer goes down easy.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Clear golden orange. Nice white head and surface wisps. Well retained.
Smell - Citrus hops and a little bit of a diaper aroma. Clean diaper, but weird. Some malt.
Taste - Better. Hoppy. Citrus and more pine comes out. Clean malt. Bitterness and oily hop resins linger in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Closer to medium heavy. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Decent. Smells kinda bad, but redeems itself.

Served in a glass chalice.
Medium amber, orange color, fairly hazy with a huge white foamy head. Aroma is of citrus, piney hops, and some floral aspects as well. Taste-wise there’s a lot of tropical stuff going on here, some orange and other really bright flavors. The piney notes are not as pronounced as the smell suggested. The IPL finishes really nicely - clean and dry on the palate. As I drink, there isn’t much lacing but the head retention is good. Unfortunately the carbonation level is kind of lacking – it seems a little bit flat. This is a good one, but I much preferred Jack’s Abbey’s Kiwi offering over this.

3.4/5 rDev -18.9%
Appearance: 1 inch head, orange-gold in color, hazy, moderate carbonation
Smell: tropical fruits and piney hops
Taste: tropical fruits and piney hops
Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, medium bodied, slightly bitter with some sweetness
Overall: Jack's Abbey is pretty hit and miss with me and while this is not a miss, it is not a hit either. The flavors are clean and fruity. Style wise it is fairly true, but it is just missing that wow factor that would make me want to get this again. Not a bad beer, just one I would most likely not get again either.
