A: a hazy burnt orange color with some lovely caramel notes. Not much head, only a thin white foam

S: ripe mango, blood orange, orange zest, sticky caramel, lemongrass, sweet malts, fresh dough, light pineapple

T: sweet tropical fruits upfront- mango, passionfruit, papaya, pineapple. Those are followed by a big malt sweetness and some nice light toffee notes. Behind that is some light bitterness: a citrusy bitterness that works nicely with the malts

M: on the fuller side of medium. Light carbonation

O: really impressed with this. This has great tropical fruit notes, and excellent use of malts. It's on the sweeter side for the style, which I absolutely love. If you like the tropical fruit flavors, you will love this. They take the stage over bitterness

Initial pour produces a sort of uneven head, but it eventually settles with a nice ring that laces nicely. Body is solid, too. Malty in the aroma and taste. The issue for me is that it is not too strong in either the aroma or taste department. Again, the body is solid, so I would be very content with this if my other options were limited. But all things being otherwise equal, the taste of this is too bland.
