Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 11th August 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very hazy dark orange colour with a one finger white head that had pretty good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Juicy orange peel, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple and cantaloupe.
Taste: Starts off nice with a good mix of citrus pith and tropical fruits, but the finish was quite boozy and overpowered all that nice juiciness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: The nice juiciness in the aroma and taste is there, but unfortunately the finish had a boozy feel that took over from all the nice juice.
