3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours with a two-finger white head with on top of a golden-yellow body. Some light lacing left behind. The nose is grapefruit along with mixed citrus and a savory pine note. Taste is mildly biter and lightly sweet. Dry with citrus flavors and mild malt foundation. Finishes clean with mild bitterness. Body is light to medium. Pretty good stuff, better than the other low ABV APA/IPAs Iíve tried.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This poured a lighter pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of freshly picked fruity and grassy hops, and not much else. Flavor was much the same, extremely light, but loaded with hop flavor and almost zero bitterness. I canít possibly think of a better session beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Ginger Man. Pours a hazed straw gold with a medium sized white head. Big bright citrus, candied citrus with a light sweetness. A touch thinner than the nose suggests, but thatís rather nice, making this super drinkable. Refreshing, crisp, long slow pithy bitterness. Super balanced, lovely. Wonderful to see such a nice hoppy session beer from Lagunitas.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 12 oz. Had a couple of these over the past two days with Janine, Vinny, and James. Pours cearish yellow-golden with a thin, bubble white head which dissipates quickly. Leaves a little white ring of lace around the surface and edge of the glass. Aroma is a knockout: pure oniony garlic with some earthy, grassy, subttly citric notes. Tastes a bit grassy and has notes of pilsner malts. Very refreshing, clean and easy-going beer. At 4.5%, itís a perfect session beer. This is great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours crystal clear golden yellow, thin white head, very light spotty lacing. Nice fruity hop aroma, a little citrus too. Tropical fruit hops in the flavor with nicely balanced malt in the body. Great light body, medium high carbonation, clean feel with lingering hop resin in the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Bottle from beer fridge / sherm1016. Pours clear orange color and thin white head. Bright with hops right upfront....but not much more behind it. Great for a "itís not 5 oíclock yet" beer but lacks a certain something...but still really really refreshing.
UPDATED 3/23/13...had another last night...bet I had a stale one before...more substance and brighter flavor...excellent by any IPA standard
