3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a clear, weak looking yellow color with a lot of carbonation, medium sized white head. Aroma was LOTS of citrus notes, some biscuit malts. Flavor was nice and quite a bit like the aroma, but not nearly as intense. Low ABV is appreciative.

Bottle. Citrus and spice balanced with mild malty sweetness. Pungent. Very light bitter finish. Looking forward to this next summer on the golf course.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light yellow with little head quickly fading into thin layer and decent lacing. Aroma is outstanding - every citrus fruit you can imagine. Taste can’t quite live up to the aroma, and has somewhat bitter hops and good malt balance - but overall pretty thin. Still, for a low ABV IPA, it’s very nicely done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a clear orange gold. Fluffy finger of white head. Aroma is citrusy with some notes of resin, lemon, black pepper, skunk, orange. Medium bodied, with notes of biscuit, and a grainy finish. Citrus is less pronounced than on the nose but still present. Overall a nice low-alcohol but full flavored brew that would be nice for lunch on a summer day.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Dark straw with white dissipating head snag light lacing. Smells piney and cat pissy. Wish the flavor followed. A Tad grainy and hard mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serviceable IPA on tap at The Cannery Row. Some European hop, citrus fruity, citra like aroma. Spicy which lends taste at this surprisingly low abv. Little sweetness, this is bitter heavy. Medium bodied. Cloudy yellow with some retained head. Not so drinkable, even after it warmed, but served too cold.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Damn, Lagunitas hits it again with this brew! Served with a nice sized foamy, cream-colored head that slowly settles to a light cover and lots of lace. Color is a clear, pale gold with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a very pleasing and aromatic blend of hop, malt, caramel, fruit, citrus, with a bit of pine. Flavor’s like nose, sweet/bitter/carbonic tang all perfectly balanced. Body is perhaps a trifle thin, carbonation is great. Finish is like flavor, average length, and superbly drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A rare lower alcohol IPA in bottle at Stoneyard. Really tasty offering from start to finish. Not as overpowering as some. Pine + tropical notes in the nose. Tropical feel to the palate along with some malty notes. Really nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear pale golden color, foamy white head. Citrus filled hop aroma, with some tropical fruits and cereal notes. Big hop flavor for a beer of its size. Fruity, apricot flavors with a light grassy bitterness. Nice session beer.
