Intro: A one pint can, canned on 15th June 2018, ‘chop shop-2’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy murky dark orange colour with an almost two finger off-white head that had decent retention and left only some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Tropical mango, papaya, citrusy orange, grapefruit rind and peel and pine.
Taste: Lightly sweet and bitter, mango, pineapple, orange rind, lightly dank, pine resin.
Mouthfeel: Thick, medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Slightly overly thick, but nice and juicy aroma and flavours making it quite easy to enjoy.
