look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Amber color with a very thick head (I guess the nitro) that keeps there eternally and leaves laces.
Light aroma of bread malt and herbal and citrus hops. Hints of pineapples.
Bitter flavor with predominant notes of pine, toasted malts and papaya. Also, some resin, tea bags and lemon. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with apparently low carbonation given the nitro.
I am getting to the conclusion that nitro is all about look and feel over flavor. I mean this is very flavorful, but the nitro seemed to have masked its complexity. A bit overly sweet after warming up.

A: Pours a translucent ruby red with an off-white head.

S: Mango, papaya, orange, pine, pineapple in a deliciously tropical nose.

T: Sweet pineapple, sweet mandarin orange, papaya, so much fruit. Some red berries are present as well. Some sweet malt is present throughout and lingers in the finish.

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: Very much underrated. This beer is great!
