Orangish honey in color. Smells like trademarked Lagunitas - lots of tropical, lots of orange and a lighter, tangy malt. Taste comes thick and full, with the same orange and tropical hop presence. The maltiness is there, but it's repeatedly bludgeoned by the fruit flavor. The end game is a thick marmalade that delights delightfully... OK that was obnoxious, but it is delightful.

Like It? Very Much

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Color was yellow golden. Probably an inch of head or so. Nice bit of lacing on the top that lasted throughout. There was also sporadic film on the sides.

Absolutely loved this smell. I got floral hops first, followed by citrus hops, mainly grapefruit and tangerine. Really, really good mix.

Tasted very similar to the smell, which I was hoping for. Once again, the floral hops came in first, while the citrus hops came in after. Left a bitter finish, but left me wanting to come back for more.

Medium body. Lively carbonation. Long, bitter finish that stayed good throughout.

I liked this beer a lot, definitely the best I’ve had in awhile. There really wasn’t a weakness in the beer. Liked it a lot.
