Intro: A 440ml can, with a best before date of 19th August 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy murky dark orange colour with a two finger white head that had excellent retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, tropical mango, citrus pith and rind, orange, sweet mandarin, and a touch of pine.
Taste: Very citrus fruit forward, lightly bitter, orange zest and pith, sweet mandarin, with hints of mango.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: I’m usually not a big fan of Triple IPAs, but this was very enjoyable with a good balance between bitter and sweet on top of nice fruitiness and well hidden ABV.
