Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 24th September 2020. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a just over one finger white head that had excellent retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Juicy, mango, pineapple, melon, citrus, orange creamsicle, mandarin, citrus rind.
Taste: Tropical and citrus fruits, pineapple, orange juice, mandarin, melon, spicy hops, bitter finish, citrus pith and rind.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Nice fruitiness, although the melon notes are not really my thing. Good sweet and bitter balance.
