Orange and peach color, leaves itself very hazy, thin white head. Aroma of hops. Lagunitas? No way. Hops smelled wetter, was expecting more of a belgian yeast vibe given the previous fusion quests, but this took on more of a green hop vibe, leading me to believe this may in fact be why the beer took on a bit of a hazy appearance. Wasn't massive in the nose though, just kinda simplistic.

Pretty sticky, bitter beer. Kind of made me think of the old oast ales made with hop oil, like hashish at times. Pineapply sweetness to it. Kinda reminiscient of FW's Double Jack.

Not a bad effort by any means, just haven't had any of these fusion beers I would run out to buy, I still think, for the best Lagunitas hop assault for your money, stick with Hop Stoopid, Lagunitas Sucks, Dogtown Pale Ale etc. . .

From notes from SF Beer Week. Pours a hazy orangish golden color with a medium white head that disappears quickly. Scent is intense amount of citrus fruit and hops right up front. Great apricot along with orange and grapefruit. Somewhat tropical fruit aroma as well. A lot of piney hops and just a nice overall west-coast aroma (meaning there wasn't much malt to it). Taste was just as it smelled with amazing citrus and tropical fruit flavors. The slightest bit of malt to it, but not enough to ruin this one. Great pine and hop flavor...tastes SOOO fresh. Mouthfeel is crisp and slightly sticky. Drinkability is very high, as ABV is well-hidden. Overall, I've tried a couple of the Fusion beers, and this one has been my favorite thus far.
