The beer pours amber and burnt orange in color. There is an inch of thick, foamy, off-white head. The aroma is very ripe, rich tropical fruits and melons. There is also citrus and sweet caramel. The taste follows the aromas, rich, deep, lush, ripe tropical fruit and melon, some citrus, all on an ample base of caramel malt. There is sweetness, before a moderately bitter and dry finish. The beer drinks smooth and round. This is definitely a lush beer all around.
