Very passion fruit and lime like juice forward. Definitely a tart component in the middle followed by some hop bitterness. Very fresh and juicy/bitter with restrained malt profile. Alcohol hidden completely. The passion fruit puree is a bit overbearing for me but I could see this brew being balanced differently batch to batch.

Appearance: Pours hazy with an amber hue and a one inch cap; shards of lacing hang around

Smell: Pineapple, orange and passion fruit with a hint of honey

Taste: Orange forward, with overripe pineapple building; the passion fruit adds a jammy bitterness; there are some mead-like honey tones that emerge, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I found this bottle in the back of the fridge and it could well be a couple of years old; still drinkable but I will need to try a fresher version to rate this more accurately
