500ml bottle purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne.

Pours a clear, faintly red-hued amber, but possibly not even dark enough to be out of the category of an IPA. Head forms a thin mesh of off-white, leaving a few specks of lace as it goes. Body is quite light, although the carbonation is fine. Looks decent enough.

Nose is pleasant enough, with a muted hop presence giving a decent dollop of fruit above some lingering sweetness. There's a slight herbal tone to the hops as it warms a little, but the fruit-salad component genuinely wins out. Decent again, without being spectacular.

Taste is clean and rather good. Light, hoppy and fragrant while avoiding being overblown, but then bolstered by a solid malt presence which holds up the back of the palate. Lingering flavours suggest pineapple and papaya, with a sweetness and body that steps in to support it. The mouthfeel seems fuller as a result as well.

Yep, overall, this is pretty decent and tasty stuff. It smacks a little bit of "seen this before", and has an atmosphere of generic craft to it, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's not a beer that redefines a genre, but it's a fairly solid interpretation.
