Poured into a stange a nice clear gold with a sudsy white head. Faintly smells of grapefruit and pineapple. My wife says it, "smells like the beach." A clean, malty initial taste with an grassy note near the end. Lively carbonation and a thinner body. Nice lawnmower beer to mix things up bit nothing I’d go out of my way to buy.

Restrained tropical (jungle) aroma in a clear golden pour. Pleasantly fruity taste to start quickly recedes into a watery finish. Not great - but still better than a mass produced lager.

Whoa. This has a lot more hops and bitter aftertaste than I expected. It looks average. Smells like watered down grapefruit juice. It’s smooth and refreshing, but then the aftertaste kicks it. Not bad at all!!!!! Bottle.

22 ounce bomber. Pours a hazy golden color. Slight white head, some light lacing. Aroma is caramel malt and hay. Flavor is malty. Slightly chewy palate. Overall pretty decent.

2.6
Nonshaugen (613) - Fetsund, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2015
Very light yellow in the glass. Nice one-finger head, not much carbonation going on. Clear and filtered, slightly chill-hazed. Citrusy and tropical fruits in the faint hop aroma. Quite grassy notes but far from a hop bomb. Not much flavour either, but caramel malt is absolutely present in the quite long aftertaste. Thin body, pleasant carbonation. Not the best beer I had, but not the worst either.

lukin (628) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
bottle. Golden-yellow colour, very small head. A nice mix of tropical fruit hops and grainy malts, but very light and fleeting taste. Just too watery in the end, a missed opportunity.

3.5
kathouse (1890) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Clear golden with a sticky white foam. Aroma is woody with light fruit. Light body with a decent hop citrus flavor.
