Interesting brew. Poured room temperature with a modest, off-white, soon to settle head and some lace. Color is a clear amber with some bubble trails. Aroma at first was skunk, but that soon fell away then fruit, hop, malt, caramel, mineral, bread. Flavor's like nose, tang is in front, then bitter is matched by sweet, but then some not so nice medicinal qualities linger. Body/carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, the medicine thing lasts too long and prevents it from being a session brew for me.

Bottle: a standard dark brown 330mL bottle with a pretty stylish label. Nice package.

Appearance: pours a cloudy orange-amber with fine carbonation across the profile. A half-finger white head pops up and drops to a thin cap. Great thin lacing all around the glass.

Taste: an aroma predominantly of tropical fruits and citrus - mainly mango, grapefruit and almost something that smells of pawpaw (and yet is nice - go figure!).

Aftertaste: mango, passionfruit and grapefruit with some heavy bread malts. Refreshing.

Mouth feel: some hop bitterness with tropical fruits still hanging about.

Overall: a nicely combined mixture of tropical and citrus fruits, with a touch of malts behind. It might have been a touch better with more malts, but hey, can't complain. Not bad for AU$72 a case of 24 x 330mL bottles either.
