Good lord tops was a good one! The awesome citrus and tropical aroma and fantastic taste. I'm lucky to live where this is plentiful and in every grocery store and now I will take advantage!

Pours Cooper, with a fluffy, lacy head. Smells sweet, roasted, citrus hops and citrus fruit. Tastes of citrus fruits, citrus hops and finishes with a caramel malt. Feels creamy and lasting.

Great session beer. Fruity but not overpowering. Well balanced with a clean finish. It isn't a west coast hop forward beer, but it hits the mark strong.
