This beer pours an extremely light blonde color, slight chill haze. The head is 4 fingers thick with decent lacing. The smell is of tropical fruit and hops, a very good nose. The taste is perfect for the style. It's a nice balance between resinous pineapple and mango hops and a very delicate and crisp malt back bone. the mouth feel is reminiscent of a typical light beer but the hop factor is of a West Coast IPA. I grew up surfing Ponto and bought this beer as a party favor for my groomsman's gift bags (I am getting married at Ponto beach next Year). Little did I know this beer would be amazing! For the style it's the best I've tried. Overall great hop profile, crisp clean malt and a low ABV. I highly recommend this brew.
