Intensely hoppy, one of Lagunitas' best.

A: Mine is clear honey-gold, with a mushrooming dense, lasting head and loads of sticky lace, lots of fine bubbles.

S: Ample fresh citrus rind of several types blend with apricot body, summer hay, and drying ganja hops / herbs.

T: Great see-saw between sweet estery tropical fruit and plenty of hop bitterness that goes long on top of a wheat cracker base. Neither the alcohol or sweet bother me, as they are nicely balanced by long bitter peppery, lemony finish.

MF: Plenty of counter balances of bitterness, stinging tingling hops to the sweet, juicy fruit body, keeps beer really interesting and fun to roll round your mouth.

It's a food beer. A must try. up there with Sculpin.

Appearance: Golden clear beer with three finger head that fades to a one finger head within a few minutes. Inviting bubbles rising.

Smell: Fresh aroma full of hops, citrus and malt.

Taste: Nice balance of grapefruit and malt. Sweet malt that fades into pleasant citrus bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Refreshing light carbonation.

Overall: Excellent beer that is in my top five list.

Serving type: Bottle into a beer mug.
