Cloudy appearance carries weight that is supported by the solid mouth feel. Very sweet upfront but the bitterness of the hops quickly takes over. Nice balance of citrus makes me wish this was more of a session beer. I will buy again.

From a can.

A mostly clear orange with a dense, off-white head with good retention and lacing, this looks solid. The nose is quite excellent. Juicy, fruity with a big tropical fruit nose, there's papaya, mango, floral honey, candied citrus and a little bit of pine. Moderately sweet, not something i typically care for, but in this case, it does complement the juicy hops quite nicely. The palate opens mildly sweet with a large fruity hop character. Pineapple, mandarin, mango and papaya are present, following by a clean pine and grapefruit like bitterness. Honeyed malt and a touch of sugar are also present. Medium-light in body and moderately carbonated, this beer is moderately carbonated and has a fruity and mildly bitter finish. Quite excellent.
