Perfect amber, fluffy white foam. Ripe orange/lime zest, fruity pebbles, cut grass. Over the top citrus hop, subdued body, and great finish.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear light copper with a one finger soapy white head that fades to a thin cap leaving some splotchy lacing.

Aroma really jumps out and it amazingly juicy. Great mango/tropical fruit nose with some hints of bread. Really can't get much better than this.

The flavor is just as awesome as the aroma. There is more malt than I was expecting but it perfectly compliments the juiciness from the hops. Tropical fruit backed up by darkish great with a touch of spiciness that almost reminds me of rye. Body is lacking but it just helps make this beer even more sessionable.

Overall, does it live up to the hype? I'm not sure. This is an amazing beer but Lagunitas really gives them a run for the money with their Sumpin' line. Nonetheless a very good brew that every beer geek needs to try.
