The nose features decent amounts of pineapple and orange, with maybe a touch of mango. Warmth lets a little maltiness come through. Doesn't seem to be as overtly fruity on the tongue, instead leaning a bit to the pithy side, with an earthy hop bite popping on the end. Alcohol is well hidden, which made a couple of these go down a little easier in one of the most beautiful settings I've ever seen at a brewery.
