look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
APPEARANCE: Clearly, I have failed! I drank this from the bottle, and did not think to pour it to get a look. Two lashings for me...
AROMA: A very noticeable tropical mango note, and a slight pine note as well.
FLAVOR: A definite grapefruit/grapefruit rind taste, with a back note of mango, and a sweet malty flavor, finishing with a piney finish.
PALATE: A medium bodied beer, with some hop bitterness. Not IPA hoppy, but noticeable.
MOUTH FEEL: A medium to moderately carbonated, almost watery beer. But don't let the liquidity of it fool you, this packs a great mouth feel, my guess is from the carbonation.
NOTES: An enjoyable medium carbonated 8.0% ABV beer that is a touch sweet, and very clean.
Serving type: bottle
