Pours cloudy, as it should. Half-inch of small bubble, white foam covers. Recedes nicely, leaving waves of sticky residue behind.
Aroma of papaya, mango and pineapple. Fruity sweet. Hints of vanilla. Mango is out of sight big.
Taste is a mix of fruity hops: mango, papaya and pineapple. Vanilla enters in the middle, conspicuously. Sharp resinous hops come on in the middle, mixing with a stiff hint on the nose as the glass tips.
Medium body, maybe more. Possibly medium carbonation: it lingers late and builds after starting shallow on the tongue. No real lingering bitterness.
A bit of rough edge as it moves into the finish with the hop resin and carbonation clash for a brief moment in an otherwise tasty brew. The body is bit sticky a big for the way I like the style. First beer from a local brewery that I will need to frequent more often. Enjoy!

We took our Hop Nawi recipe -with its "boatload" of Vic Secret and Galaxy hops from Austrailia - and further enhanced the flavors, aromas and body with the addition of mangoes, lactose (milk sugar) and Madagascar vanilla beans.
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
