Misc.: Use by Aug. 15, 2014
Poured a honey, caramel, semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Nice amount of uneven layered lacing along the sides of the glass. Above average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled sharp grapefruit, tropical hops, citrus hops, floral hops, grapefruit rind, tangerine, orange and Amarillo hops (I am real bad at knowing exact hops, so the can helped me here). Either way, just fantastic.
Taste wasn’t quite as good as the smell. More resin and skunkiness than the smell. Got bitter grapefruit, resin hops, tropical hops, citrus hops, floral hops, orange zest, tangerine rind, honey wheat and caramel.
Light body. Oily-to-thin texture. Average carbonation. Refreshing, abrupt finish.
Just a really good beer. I loved it. Can’t wait to have another.

A: Pours a cloudy light golden color with a 1 1/2 finger head that dissipates slowly, good lacing.
S: Tropical fruits with pineapple, orange, mango. Light pine and malt.
T: Again with tropical fruits and malt.
M: Light body, medium carbonation, light bitterness, and a slight dry finish.
O: Very easy to drink. Would be perfect for drinking all day long on a hot summer day.
