Hazed peach colored body. Thin off white head leaves sporadic spots of lace.
Aroma is hoppy...birght, citric and minty. Flavor is mostly juicy tropical hop flavors. Body is actually fairly thin and there isn't much of a malt presence here. Alcohol is quite minimal as well for an 8.9% beer. This is a solid effort.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into an snifter glass.

Appearance: Light amber color poured lightly giving a white 1/2" head.

Smell: Doesn't smell bad but not the strongest property of the beer. Smells like pine...no not the washing stuff more like a beautiful forest. I like it but I don't love it.

Taste: Pretty bitter more of an acquired taste. Hints of grapefruit skin, very strong hop.

Mouth: Medium carbonation, not too hard to swallow. Does bubble up as is it moves some people like this I personally don't mind just giving you the heads. up.

Overall: Not a bad beer at all. I would but it again...if you like bitterness and the scent of taste of pure "hopness" this is for you. Not your smoothest "blonde" ale...I would like to confirm with Lafunita's if this is an actual blonde ale or in reality maybe we are just drinking a "blonde" IPA, cheers to all.

22oz into a pint

A - Pours a light golden brown color. Very clear, translucent. Lots of pearly white head.

S - West coast hops, citrus, a little bit of pine. Underneath it all is just a little bit of caramel sweetness.

T - Starts off night and malty up front, caramel, a little bit of nuttiness. Mid stream brings on a solid hopping profile, a little bit of deep citrus hopping. Finishes with a solid bitter finish and a bit of grapefruit on the tongue.

M - Full bodied beer, balancing and even stronger carbonation. A little bit cloying in the finish.

O/D - An interesting but not particularly easy to drink beer. The heft sits on stomach pretty hard. The west coast hopping starts to leave a pretty harsh bitterness. ABV is high enough to get you.
