    Pours cloudy with a solid white foam. Thick, becoming slightly frothy as it recedes. Great retention. Thick lacing from the start.

    Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, and resin. This is exactly what is on the can; they hit the profile on the head.

    Taste is tropical fruits that give way to a blend of tropical fruits and citrus in the middle that glides through to the finish. Smooth without bitterness.

    Medium body, maybe more. High medium carbonation that lingers on the tongue tip and sides. Juicy but quickly drying.

    The aroma of the beer is much better than the taste but the taste isn't that far off. The aroma makes a statement and promise that the taste cannot keep. Easy drinking, good balance, and no bitterness. I would have it again. Enjoy!
