Sample size (2 ounces) on tap at the brewery.

A: It pours a dark yellow color, with very strong pure white head, good lacing and good retention.

S: Strong strong smell for such a small beer in terms of ABV. It is Citra though, you get almost unriped mangos and pineapples, but, most of all, lemon and orange juice/peel.

T: Like the smell, you get a really good amount of lemon and orange juice that is accompanied by a sour version on mangos and pineapples. Then, you get a the citrus peels type of hoppiness an it is then followed by a light amount of sweetness to linger on in the aftertaste.

M: Very light and fluffy, perfect for this type of beer.

D: Not sure why I need to comment on the drinkability of such a beer. Highly drinakble. I could down a 2L growler by myself no problem.

All in all, a very straightforward beer but it is beautifully executed. Highly recommended.
