Consumed November 23rd, 2013 at the brewery.

Appearance - medium golden, clear. Fine, white head, just like all Kinetic beers.

Pineapple, mango, tropical fruit in the nose. Yup, this is the work of Citra hops.

Flavor finishes up with well-modulated bitterness and a big wash of hops: citric and piney. That's more interesting than how it starts, which is very mild and indistinct malt. Not bad, just really hop-forward.

Particularly tingly from the carbonation, almost burning.

The best of the Kinetic beers I had.

On tap at Kinetic Brewing Company in Lancaster, CA.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and some tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with a nice tropical fruit flavor on the finish. There is a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and refreshing.
