Poured from a bottle into a tulip.

A: The appearance is an amber color with a thick foamy head which quickly disappears into a nice lacing that stays there until you finish it.

S: I think the smell is the best thing about this beer. The immediate smell I encountered was sweet pineapple, grapefruit, orange, tangerine, and a little nuttiness. Truly one of the best smelling beers I've ever had the pleasure of smelling.

T: Taste follows the nose with a little sweetness followed by a strong taste of grapefruit. There is also a tiny hint of pineapple but the grapefruit was definitely the main flavor. Leaves a small amount of bitterness every time you take a sip.

M: Very creamy and a bit oily.

O: I thought this beer was a fine example of why Laguanitas is one of the best craft beer producers around. Everything about this beer is spot on for the type of beer that it is. Although I personally didn't like the bitterness the aftertaste left, that is just my personal opinion. Would definitely recommend it if you like this style of beer.

Beer is a clear golden/copper colour with a smallish white head.

Nose is hoppy, with citrus and tropical fruit sticking out. Grapefruit, orange, papaya. Quite a nice scent.

The hops are all there in the flavour as well, grapefruit being the standout. Moderately bitter. Crisp wheat flavours come out, which I didn't really detect in the nose. Finish is a bit soapy.

Medium bodied, strongly carbonated. A bit oily.

Overall, quite good. Nice beer indeed.
