Aroma

The aroma is truly delightful with its blended scent of tropical fruit and pine.

Flavor

The palate features big citrus flavors of orange and tangerine that’s blended with pine resin. A fairly dense malt base tastes somewhat like rye. Finishes dryly with a juicy bite of grapefruit and mellows to a tropical fruit sweetness.
