Thanks to fiver29 for yet another lovely box of beer, this one stuffed with a bunch of Fat Head's hops, which I always covet. 22 oz. bottle split with, well, no one, as usual for this brewery. I don't play well with others.
The pour is a light filtered orange, & it has carbonation. Nose is all citrus with a foreshadowing of lashing-out bitterness. Not bad.
Sunshine Daydream tastes like the Son of Head Hunter. Tsunami of House-level bitterness greets the tongue & pummels the palate. Middle is akin to a Fruit of the Loom commercial, with mango, orange, citrus, & those fruit-guys you can't see in the background. I am gulping this, which I suppose how a session IPA should be treated.
These guys know what to do with hops. Too many low ABV beers are colorless & could easily be confused with slightly altered well water - not this one. One of the better 'session' beers out there & a very good beer.

I LIKE THE SUNSHINE DREAM!!! Please do not mass produce and kill the taste a la Z'Dust!!! This beer is a light version of the original Z'Dust. The beer pours a clear golden color with thin white head that is leaving a lace. The scent carries wonderful citrus, pine and orange spice. The taste follows the nose and comes off the pallet fairly clean. The mouthfeel is light in body with good carbonation. Overall this is an absolute solid beer!!!

Appearance: Pours a deep amber, cloudy with lots of sediment chunks. Thick 1.5" light tan head, foamy. Outstanding lacing and retention.
Aroma: BIG citrus & resinous aroma.
Taste: Light, dry arrival. slight hint of some malt, like a shadow of malt, across mid-palate. Firm hop bite, string bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel: Light & clean. Lighter than most APAs; mild but present effervescence.
Overall: No doubt, this is a hoppy beer; but it is not overpowering or unpleasant. If it is out of balance, it is in a good way.
