Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 7th November 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: It was a dark copper amber colour with a two finger off white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple and candied orange sweetness with hints of caramel, berries, pine and grapefruit.
Taste: Sweet malt, light caramel, pine, grass and herbal with hints of bitter citrus and mixed berries.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was pretty good, but the malts seemed to take charge when it was supposed to showcase a single hop, which was a bit disappointing. However I did feel that this was the best of the four Single Hop Series that I tried.
