COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.

AdamT (238) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2015
12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Golden hue, normal clarity with somewhat lasting white fizzy head. Virtually no lacing (I think there is something wrong with my snifter) Aroma of orange citrus hop, grapefruit and lemon, some floral notes as well. Light citrus grapefruit hop up front with more of a lemon zest finish. Fizzy on palate, good mouthfeel. Okay, but not my favorite Lagunitas brew.

seymour (1623) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a crystal clear golden colour with sudsy white foam and lace. Bigger aroma than flavour. True-to-style American Pale Ale: grainy, grapefruity, dank. Light body, strong carbonation, hoppy aftertaste. Good not great.

drjay44 (2895) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, white head, with heavy lacing, over a slightly hazy yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, light cereal malts, balance to the hops......taste is heavily to the hops, with pine, resin, grapefruit, light floral tones, light cereal, balance heavily to the hops....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a light refreshing, quenching, hop delivery vehicle. It fall into the category, and really does taste good unlike some others in the style. They are all, however, in many ways, highly hopped Pale Lagers.BJCP 8/3/14/4/8

mjg74 (2726) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle from Plaid Pantry. Light golden straw in color. Nose is sort of sweet with tropical fruit notes, followed by some more pungent bitterness. Good and bitter throughout. The body is a little lacking. Pretty tasty sessional brew.

kramer (5348) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow gold body with a one finger frothy white head that had nice retention. The nose is dank and citrusy hops with a minimal malt impact. Smells pretty delicious. The flavor is well balanced between the hop flavor and bitterness level. If tastes equally dank and hoppy as it smells. Perfect minimal malt impact on the flavor, just a bit of clean bready maltiness. Light bodied and very easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Good drinker.
