The look is cloudy, and the color is like a dirty pineapple juice. There's a little bit of fine head, but it dissipates quickly. Not a whole lot of lacing.

The smell is very tropical. Lots of pineapple, plus some sweet, acidic citrus. I'll call it mostly red grapefruit and key lime. Sweet mango in there. There's also a pine element.

The fruit is still there, but the taste is much more earthy. Unfortunately, in nondescript as far as any particular earthy flavor. Pineapple juice does make a late, yet very clear, showing. The intensity is less than on the nose. It's more bitter than I'd prefer, especially since the intensities of the other flavors don't rise up enough to compete.

Feel is medium weight, and there's not much carbonation. Aftertaste is dominated by the bitterness. The fruit's pretty much gone by this point.
