look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

16oz can poured into a tulip pint.

Appearance
Golden-yellow with 1 finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Slightly chill hazed with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Pineapple, papaya and caramel.

Taste
Pineapple, papaya, candied orange wedges and lemon. Caramel cover grains covers the grain bill. Finishes with pine, tangerine and orange zest.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp and clean.

Overall
This is like a lighter version of Daisy Cutter. Good doses of tropical fruits. Easily one of the best American Blonde Ales that I've ever had.
