Straw yellow in color with a half inch of tightly knit bright white. Heavy lacing. The aroma is predominantly of fragrant floral, some tropical hops, and light malt. I'm tasting tropical hops and light sour dough malt. The mouth is lightly sticky and chewy, but overall fairly smooth.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a medium head that leaves a creamy lace over most of the glass. Nose is not massive, but very pleasant with peach and some citrus. Flavor is really delicious. Not much hop bite, but lots of light stone fruits and a very well rounded flavor. Overall, a great beer that stands out a bit even in San Diego.

Picked up a 64 oz growler at the brewery on 2-21-17 for $16.71. Shared at the Coyotes-Sabres tailgate on 2-26-17.

Beer poured pale gold with a nice white head that left lacing behind.

Nose was exquisite, mango and grapefruit prevailed nicely.

Taste was just as good, mango grapefruit juice like with a touch of pine meshing so very nicely with the malt backbone.

Mouthfeel is terrific, one of the softest brews i have had. Light in body it dances so beautifully with each sip.

Overall an awesome brew. My buddy was just as impressed. Seek this out if you are in San Diego!
