Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 5th November 2018. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark orange yellow colour with a huge uncontrollable head that just goes crazy no matter how careful or slowly you pour it. Retention of the head was excellent but quite frankly in this case it was really annoying as I barely poured anything into the glass before the head just exploded and this meant it took forever to pour even a decent amount of beer into the glass. Lacing was ok.
Aroma: Tropical melon, guava, passionfruit followed by citrusy orange and grapefruit rind and even a touch of unripe mango at the end.
Taste: Lightly bitter, grapefruit and orange pith, with hints of melon, guava and passionfruit.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Interesting flavours of guava, passionfruit and melon, but the pour was just troublesome.
