look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Cloudy yellow color with a small white head that fades quick.

S - Sweet cereal, citrus hops, mainly lemon, tropical fruit, bready as it warms.

T - Follows the nose with cereal malts, corn, lemon citrus, with some green bitterness on the back end. Wheat is very present with some graininess. Pineapple and star fruit come out as it warms. Finishes crisp and quite dry.

M - Light to medium body with a semi-full feel. Carbonation is medium and the beer finishes nice and dry.

I've always passed this up but I actually enjoyed this. I could drink this all day. Hoppier than I'd expected and the tropical fruit was a nice surprise.
