5 month old can. Pours bright orange with a rich dense head. Aroma is resiny, quire floral, some refreshing citrusy tropical fruit. Taste meets with a clear bitterness, very refreshing, resiny, quite floral, very balanced, really nice malt background, would be superb if it was more tropical fruit, super high drinkability.
