After drinking this beer for more than a decade, I have finally come around to rating this fine brew.

A - Orange/yellow body with a short white head. Appears creamy like a creamsicle.
S - Juicy, sweet, piney, and hoppy.
T - Amazingly delicious. This beer is brimming with flavor. Pine, hops, and tropical flavors.
M - Medium and dry.
O - This beer has always been something very, very unique to me. It is sunny, rich, and delicious.
