Can into a wineglass showing cloudy dark yellow with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows light orange citrus. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Flavors of juicy orange with a light citrus background. Orange zest throughout and a citric zesty bitterness. So incredibly fruit forward; this is fantastic.

Opaque cloudy appearance. Almost looks like a cloudy juice. Dank, grassy hop aroma with some citrus hops. Good malt balance but feels like a light wheaty malt. Hops are showcased well. Has almost a fresh hop oily feel and some big juicy hop flavors. Has a piney dank finish. Maybe not my favorite hop profile in general, but the hop flavors are so fresh and balanced and juicy it is just so drinkable. Really nice. Sometimes I get more dank piney and sometimes big juicy citrus hops. Quite different and quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the source. Hazy yellow body with a soapy, white head. Lovely aroma of tropical citrus and uber fresh hops. Similar flavor. Refreshing and easy. Teeming with flavor. So juicy. Terrific.

Pounder can via PUB’R. Pours golden milk shakey with frothy, white head. Nose is Goddamned amazing; a medley of piney hops, honeydew, grapefruit, pineapple. Tastes smooth, with assertive hops, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and a complex finish.

The hype used to be real, danky and juicy, now just an average beer. So Sad.

Cloudy light blond, very smooth, light ipa, probably a great hot summer day beer.

Can courtesy of my friend Noel. Thanks! Pours cloudy gold with a short white head. Aroma is strong floral hops, citrus fruit and tropical fruit. Taste is floral hops, citrus fruit, tropical fruit and sweet malt. Body is medium with a soft bubbly carbonation and a light lingering hop bitterness. Ends with more floral hops, citrus fruit, tropical fruit and soft malt notes. Delicious!
