3.65/5 rDev -14.1%
Pours an orange colour. Clear, with a trickle of bead. Head is off-white, lovely and fluffy and meringue-like on top. Retains well. Very good.
Smells malty but tangy. Lots of kiwi, paw-paw and lychee. Lots of orange zest and mandarin as well. Light and refreshing.
Taste is quite sweet, with cake batter malt and some caramel. Some orange zest and mandarin on there that gets some bitter hoppiness towards the back. Largely malty, though. Some vanilla notes and it all ends quite citric but bitter. Bit of a sweet/bitter dichotomy rather than a nice transition/balance. Nice flavours overall though.
Smooth, but a bit lacking in texture, and body.
Nice drinkin' beer, there's obvious signs that it could have been amazing, though, and it remains just nice for me.

Poured from a bomber into a goblet
A- pours a slightly hazy orange with a one finger white head that fades quickly. About part for the course
S- tropical fruits, tropical fruits, and tropical fruits. Holy wow. INtense.
T- actually, pretty malty beginning...hoppiness is low, not much bitterness. Eh, expected more
M- medium bodied, on the thick side. Meh, too much with the maltiness
O- disappointing IMO. too much malt, not enough balance
