Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 15th November 2017. Poured into a Mikkeller tasting glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark orange colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Candied pineapple, passion fruit, grapefruit, pine and caramel.
Taste: Sweet and only lightly bitter, caramel, citrus rind, honey, pine and surprisingly strong alcohol especially since it was well hidden with Citra and Mosaic.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Aromas were pretty nice but the surprisingly strong alcohol in the taste was not pleasant on the palate. Not as good as Citra and Mosaic.
