What the brewers say

“Appearance is bright and straw-colored. Spicy, earthy aromas of tropical fruit notes abound. Complex flavors of grape juice, light citrus, and lychee emerge on the palate. The Pilsner malt provides a cracker crisp malt character and clean, mineral finish.”  

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lots of fruit and juicy notes of tropical fruit, including mango, pineapple, and passion fruit. Fruity hops offer up a compelling aroma—the citrus and earthy tones tickle the nose.”

Flavor: “Lots of flavor, and the pineapple, orange, mango, and tropical fruits hit with a burst of juiciness. They carry through a creamy body to a nice, refreshing finish. Well blended with the sweet berry and fruit flavors that mix with the bitterness of the hops flavors. Finishes dry and bitter.”

Overall: “Great juicy character—a palatial blend of intense citrus juiciness braced by a spicy bitterness that’s just enough to keep it from cloying. It’s easy for beers this big and intense to lose focus, but every character is well developed and the whole is tightly edited into a delicious whole.”
