Pours opaque/cloudy with an inch or more of pure white foam that covers. Retention is surprisingly fleeting. There is residual foam on top but no lacing accompanies.
Aroma is dank, resinous hops. There is some pineapple and orange like citrus. Sweet. Overripe tropical fruit.
Taste is more of the same from the nose.
Medium body with medium or better carbonation, which can be abrupt at time, combining with the hop resin to make for rough finish. Dry.
The hop profile isn't complex enough for. Would like the tropical profile to me more prevalent. The price point is bit much: $24 for 6, 16 ounce cans is the priciest four pack I have ever purchased that wasn't bourbon aged, which takes enjoyment out of the beer for me. I expect more for the price point. A good beer but not ground breaking or solid within in the style. I would have the beer again but the price point would make me pass. Enjoy!

"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
