Pours a burnished orange colour, with slow bead. Dense cream head. Looks a treat.

Smells very fruity, yeah like citra hops. Passion and mango abound, light and quite airy. Sweet, pleasant, but ultimately just smells insubstantial and needs something earthier to ground it.

Taste is massively tropical fruit. Loads of mango, passion with a mango pudding softness, then a very citric, acidic bitterness that just emerges as from the swamp. Yeah, not sure I love citra as a pale ale hop. Very fruity front and very citric back.

Yeah, smooth, soft texture. No bubbles. Really quite nice.

Decent enough beer, but as an APA it seems a little off balance.
