Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 9th November 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy copper amber colour with a two finger off white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: A good mix of citrus orange and mandarin with tropical papaya and mango plus hints of pine and grass.
Taste: Malty sweet biscuit and caramel with bitter citrus rind, peel and orange. Maybe hints of mango and pine on the finish, but not much.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not as good as Cascade or Simcoe, but like the others, the malts overpowered the hops and was just ok.
