For a session beer under 4%, the Raul man was all kinds of surprised. Like, a Cartier watch falling out of the piñata kind of surprised! Really crisp, juicy, and has a nice malt backbone that keeps you on the level like Congress should. Just all kinds of smooth and tasty like Olivia Munn biting into a plum.

Yep!

Appearance: pours with a copper orange color. Big head of two and a half fingers on the pour which dissipated but was present while drinking. Active carbonation is right on for the style. Random sticky lacing left behind with each drink.

Smell: Crisp dried fruits and not overly bitter pine greet the drinker. Some floral accents are picked up on the body, combining with heavy saturated citrus. Just a touch of caramel malts picked up on the back end.

Taste: Initial hit of soft tropical fruits really pulls the drinker in. Grassy hop profile opens up on the body and lingers on the palate throughout. There is a creamy, buttery malt backbone that really allows the hops to shine. The finish is lingering pine and grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: Really impressive showing for a brew ay 3.8% abv. Easy drinking with enough body to keep you interested. Carbonation fits well.

Overall: For me this is a solid middle ground between Stone Go To and Founders All Day. Definitely hop forward with a present malt profile. Really impressed by the pop that this brew bring being what it is. A summer staple.
