The beer pours a gleaming dark golden and amber. There is a tall, thick head of white to off-white foam. The aroma is tropical fruit, mango, citrus, pineapple and passion fruit, over toasted malt. The taste follows the aromas, the tropical fruit is present, but more subdued in the flavor. The finish is mostly dry and quite bitter, like biting a grapefruit. The beer drinks both smooth and tingling.
