Pours a cloudy, somewhat dark orange with two fingers of white head.
Lots of tropical notes on the nose, mango, papaya, also getting some light citrus pith.
Taste follows pretty closely, tropical with a lingering pithy finish
Medium to full body with good carb levels.
Overall another winner from Heist.

A: Pours an extremely murky medium to dark burnt orange in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate dark golden yellow + honey colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film covering a little more than 50% of the surface of the beer and a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, and tropical/passionfruit with a light to moderate aroma of citrus/grapefruit pith hops over the top of moderate aromas of biscuit + caramel + honey malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel + honey sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit + caramel + honey malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel + honey sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy tropical/mango, tropical/papaya, and tropical/passionfruit with a light to moderate flavor of citrus/grapefruit pith hops which impart a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a really enjoyable combination of tropical hop flavors. Definitely worth grabbing and one that I plan on enjoying again soon.

Appearance: An impressive bubble show yields a two finger head perched atop the cloudy honey colored liquid; splashy lacing all around

Smell: Papaya and lychee forward with passion fruit in the background

Taste: Papaya and lychee lead off, with pineapple and mango tones rounding out the front; through the middle, a passion fruit intensity builds, bringing moderate bitterness to the middle; the finish is juicy with a modest lingering bitter quality

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The alcohol is well-hidden and the tropical flavors make a nice blend
