Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, golden-copper coloring, with a solid amount of sediment suspension, a few strong legs of carbonation, and a filmy, clingy, off-white head. Aromas of tropical fruits, with a subtle astringency peeking through in there. Some grassy highlights in the nose, too. Flavors are grassy and tropical fruit sweet forward, with a blend of melon, apricot, and mango. Very sweet, almost sugary sweet, with the grassy hops notes developing a subtle herbal tone further down the palate. Roasted overtones, too. The body is chewy and dry, and there is a subdued aftertaste of fruit sweetness and subtle sugary residue. The finish is slick, oily, and slightly dry, with a cloying fruit sweet linger. Not bad, but nothing that really sets it apart for me.
