Intro: A 1 pint can with no canned on or best before date printed on it. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy bright golden orange colour with a two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some lacing.
Aroma: Very tropical beginning and citrusy finish with lots of mango, peach, apricot, papaya, pineapple, grapefruit and pine.
Taste: Mango, peach, apricot, sweet mandarin orange, citrus pith and light pine with a touch of booze.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: Very nice juiciness in both the aroma and taste. It would have been even better if it could completely hide the slight booze I got in the taste every now and then. But otherwise, it was great DIPA.
