I was finally able to track this beer down....and it was worth the wait. Upon opening, I detected a bit of a floral scent, nothing overpowering but nice. Nice hoppy taste that sticks with you for a bit longer than my other favorite Lagunitas beer, Hop Stoopid. Very pleasant aftertaste. I would definitely drink this year round if Lagunitas would release it year-round.

Pours a nice, clear pale orange with a big frothy head, good lacing. Nice citrus aromas and taste. Crisp carbonation, easy to drink. What the he'll took me so long to find this. Another terrific brew from a brewery that gets it right.

Got a little sumpin sumpin today and what a nice ale. That said it pours a golden colour with a nice white bubbly head. The aroma is definitely bright citrus, hops, and a aromatic sweetness. The taste is nice with zesty orange peel, overtones of hops, a kick of grapefruit, and also has a nice dry finish. Overall... Simply Outstanding !!!

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Clear gold color. One finger pure white head that quickly thinned down to a cap. Left good lacing.

S---Sweet, citrus fruit (orange & grapefruit). A bit of pine in there as well.

T---Hops are prominent. Orange & grapefruit are at the front of all of the fruitiness.

F---Quenching. Nicely carbonated feel helps it go down easy. Feels like one you'd have several of on a hot day (7.5 ABV might make that a questionable idea, though).

O---Lagunitas produces high quality stuff and this falls in line with what they do. Excellent.
