Pours a light orangish-yellow, not quite pilsner light but close, finger of head, decent lacing, pretty clear

Smell is pineapple, pear, grapefruit, peach, bread, wheat and a ting of honey sweetness, A joy to smell to say the least.

Taste is pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, bready malt, wheat, hint of pepper, bittering pine on the finish while remaining slightly sweet at the same time.

Mouthfeel is on the heavier side of medium, average carbonation, slightly drying, not as drying as a IPA though.

I have had this many a time, but for some reason never gave it a score. I see why people compare it to Sucks.... All Lagunitas beers seem to have that amazing citrus quality that I for one just love. They are all different in there way, some more malty, some more bitter, some more piney.... But I think we can all agree you know a Lagunitas beer when you taste it!

Pours golden yellow with an amber orange hue with a slightly off-white finger of sticky foam.

Grapefruit, orange, slightly grassy, pine.

Straight up citrus and a little bready.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, fruity, and crisp.

Overall, an absolutely solid brew.
