Bright clear golden yellow color with bright white solid head. Lots of mango and Papaya on the nose, hints of Sauvignon blanc, grassy and citric.

Sweet fruitiness up front, sweet candied fruit. Malt adds a faintly syrupy body, finishes explodes with fruity hop flavor, amazing bright, medium bodied, absolutely no alcohol detection, bitterness is mild, just enough to balance the brew. Leaves the mouth watering. Didn't know it was possible to top dirt wolf but this beer is simply fantastic
