Pours orange with some white head and clear. Nose is bursting with pineapple, orange, citrus, flowers, tropical fruits, sweet fruits, pear and a touch of sweet malts. Flavor is huge, citrus, pineapples, tropical fruits, mango, peaches. Medium light sweet malt in there as well and just a touch of spicy hops in the finish.

Hey, enjoyed this. Lots of citrus, but more shades of pineapple than more bitter fruits. Some good grain for a bit of balance. strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Clear copper. Pillowy white head with decent lace. The aroma of this brew is unreal. Ima see if it wants to be my best friend. Huge tropical fruit assault. Papaya, mango, some hoppy citrus zest just for fun. Taste is more wet hop style to me. Chewy citrus hop resin. Super hoppy but not overly bitter. The fruit notes really tone it down. Terrific brew overall. bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aroma is huge citrus!! Flavors are citrus, grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and slight lemon. Very hop forward but not overly bitter, if your looking for balance though this is not your beer. Great job lagunitas!! TimsRatings (421) - - DEC 19, 2013
On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Pours a clear amber. Strong hoppy aroma that kicks into high gear on the tongue. Pleasantly refreshing.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 12 oz. bottle from trade. No date but should be fresh since I got it today. Pours a deep clear golden orange with a small white head. Big malt aroma with bits of grapefruit, orange rind, caramel. This smells rather malty for what I expected. Flavor is a big malt bomb with caramel, honey, and densely sweet citrus. Waaay sweet for a sub-8% brew. Heavy slick mouthfeel, sweet and nearly syrupy, with medium carbonation. This was totally not what I expected from this beer. Not bad but not close to the hype. Like, this is wtf level short of hype. I wonder if this is an older bottle. There is a number on the neck but doesn’t seem to be a Julian date so no effing clue.

Retrying this with a bottle I know is fresh. Pours golden and clear with a giant fluffy white head. Off the bat there is significantly more cat pee, pine, lemon peel, and huge florals than last time. Flavor is a mouthfeel of fresh hops, medium bitter, with honey, pine, pineapple, grapefruit, orange peel, and some sweet malts in the background. What a night and day difference! Medium slick mouthfeel with medium or a little less carbonation. A really nice brew that I could have again for sure. Maybe a step or two below my favorites but still very nice. Only complaint is that I would like a bit more carb.
I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, citrus, bitter finish. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.

A: honey golden ale with a finger of white foam over crystal clear ale. A sheet of white resides and leaves soapy residue.
S: Grapefruit, lemons, pine, resin, bubble gum, so many yummy hops. This is so far, excellent.
T: Sweet with lemons, grapefruit, juicy fruit.
M: A bit thin with hi carb and fairly dry.
O: Really a good beer. Gonna have more of this.

12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent vibrant gold with a bit of orange, and a white fluffy head. Lacing is good. Smell is rye malt and tons of musty piney west coast hops. Taste is sweet upfront with good hop bitterness and rye bite at the end. Really good brew, drinks like a rye IPA. Not sure why RB lists it as a strong ale.
