Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 8th November 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A clear orangey dark amber colour with a one finger off white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Grapefruit, grass, citrus tea and a hint of sweet caramel malt.
Taste: Orange juice, grapefruit, grass, pine, caramel malt and spicy peppery notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Second to Simcoe, but better than Citra and Mosaic. The malts overpowered the supposed showcased hops though, but it was still nice.
