Unknown vintage; drank 8/19/14 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the can into a glass.

Semi-opaque orange color.

Off-white head; thick lace.

Winter pine, grapefruit & sweet honey notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Mango, grapefruit, pine & caramel nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Mango, grapefruit, pine & caramel flavors, but the harshly bitter finish kills the vibe. At least they warned me.
