32oz growler poured into a Forest & Main pint glass.

Appearance
Golden amber with 1 finger of loose, white head. Pretty hazy with decent head retention.

Nose
Passion fruit, mango, papaya, bread and caramel.

Taste
Distinct tropical notes of passion fruit along with lighter notes of papaya rind and mango. Clean bready malts with drizzles of caramel. Notes of pine resin and grapefruit zest peek through in the finish.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth, juicy and semi-dry with a moderately light bitterness.

Overall
It's smooth, it's easy drinking, it's Kinch! One part English IPA, one part tropical bouquet! (Okay, okay...I know that was totally lame.)
