Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 6th October 2017, with the words: “This one’s for you kidz” printed on the bottom. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A murky dark orange colour with a two finger frothy white head that had pretty good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy and tropical strong with lots of mango, peach, apricot, grapefruit peel, orange rind and a hint of vanilla.
Taste: Orange juice, mango, peach, pineapple, citrus peel with a touch of vanilla. Finish is lightly sweet and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: Wonderful fruit aromas while very easy and relaxing to drink. I wasn’t sure how the vanilla would match with IPA’s, but in this case, it balances very well with the tropical and citrus fruits.
