Thanks to R and C for picking this up for me when they went to CA.

Poured form a 510 ml bottle with the date code clearly printed on the label (3/26/13) into a pint glass and get 1 1/4 finger of head.

A: Pours a light gold color about the color of iced tea and I get 1 1/4 finger of head that is rocky and has big bubbles. The head dissipates slowly and leaves more than just a covering on top of my glass. There is a lot of beautiful sticky lacing from the top to the bottom of the glass.

S: Not a big smell of hops but a nice aroma of citrus hops.

T: This is really fruit basket of taste. Taste of tropical fruit like pineapple and mango and some red grapefruit.

O: This beer is smooth and refreshing. I don't think it's a hop-bomb but a more subtle taste that goes down smooth. It is full-bodied and lightly carbonated. Just a very enjoyable beer.
