It's not my intention to be a homer with this review and gush about it undeservedly, I've been disappointed by LR many times before, but this sucker was flat out awesome.

Had a pint of this at the brewery and blown away so I grabbed a growler on the way out.

Served in a DFH whacked-out glass.

A: Poured a cloudy tangerine color with a whopping white head that stayed in place for a while.

S: Fruit bomz r us! Seriously, Tropic Thunder is right on here: Mango, orange, grapefruit, and a hint of lemon.

T: This was like an alcohol and wheat infused fruit smoothie. Not too sweet, medium-bodied, and with a summer beer-like disposition overall. All the major fruit layers from the smell were present.

M: Light and bubbly, gulpable, and very, very drinkable. Ridiculous lacing.

O: I hope Lost Rhino brings this back next summer as well. Pretty awesome.

Pours a cloudy dull orange color. Good carbonation, with a very full thick white head sitting on top.

The nose comes out of nowhere. I expected subdued, but this has a good profile. Citrus hops, grapefruit, tropical fruit. A little bit of grain comes through.

Flavor is a sweet citrus. Grapefruit, mango, orange, just a touch of pine. The sweetness and bitterness mix together well.

It feels very sessionable on the palate.
