Poured a golden yellow clear color with two fingers of frothy white head. Pretty good foamy spiderweb foamy lacing on the sides. Very good retention all the way down on the top.
Very surprised with the smell. Was expecting a watery honey flavor, but got a mix of floral hops and citrus hops. Got grapefruit and I think tangerine as well. Got some honey as well. Very nice.
Taste wasn’t quite as good as the smell, but decent nonetheless. Got a toned down version of the floral hops and citrus hops. Watery grapefruit, sweet floral notes.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt watery finish. Clean, crisp and refreshing.
I can’t believe how good this beer was. A very nice pleasant surprise.

From bottle. Pours a pale gold without much head or lacing. Nose is very big for a lager with fruit and a surprising burst of hops. The taste is also surprisingly big with more of the pleasant fruit/hops combination. Quite a bit of carbonation. Finish is clean. Very good for the style.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wonderful citrus grapefruit hop aroma. Very light body and mouthfeel. Perfect for summer afternoons in the sun. Slight astringent aftertaste, but could be the citrus hop flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Citrus aroma that has elements of tropical fruits like many Kona brews. Light golden color. Taste is minor bitterness and lots of fruit, mangoes, pineapple and of course grapefruit, all while not seeking to overwhelm. Light body with some zest, still very sessionable.
