A little dry, but nicely balanced between the bitter and aroma hops. Very drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

a: super clear staw colored with some dark orange notes. head is solid, frothy & white

s: smells better than i was expecting. mango, passionfruit, pineapple - pineapple is dominant. a faint caramel-syrup presence in here as well

t: flavor is a bit of a let down from the aroma. the flavor kind of punches you with bitterness, but not from any of the tropical fruits i was hoping for. i can't even really put my finger on something to associate with the bitterness besides it being bitter. there is that light caramel malt in here as well, but its overshadowed

m: light mouthfeel, well carbonated

o: aroma and mouthfeel are good but flavor is way too one-dimensional in its bitterness. no depth in here…maybe i have a bad keg or something? based on what i have in front of me, you're much better off going with another option
