The colour is cool orange-yellow, the liquid is hazy. The high head is white and compact; it sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is smooth and hoppy with some sweet milky notes. Citric peels and a hint of cardboard.

The taste is very bitter and dry with quickly passing notes of lime peel and butter. Some milk/lactose and resin. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is less bitter. Notes of mint, butter, fresh flowers and some exotic fruits. The finish is fruity and a bit sweet.

The carbonation is medium strong, the mid-sized bubbles are

A surprisingly complex and dry APA with developing flavours.

Beautiful hazy, yellow beer. Almost like orange juice!

Nose: Tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, orange and vanilla.
Taste: A lighter taste than the nose but still very pleasant!
Mouth: Medium body and high carbonation. The beer ends with a light bitterness.

Pours a hazy orange, with a few floaties.

Lovely smell, pineapple, lime and vanilla. Very tropical!

The taste doesn't quite deliver as I had hoped though. It's earthy, with hints of pineapple and lemon, but there isn't all that much going on.

Light bodied and amply carbonated, this drinks easily, and is refreshing.

I had high hopes for this, as Brewski are very good at this kind of beer. Sadly, the taste didn't live up to a great nose. Not bad at all, just not that special.
