Bottle shared at a tasting at LiBira Pub in Haifa. Clear pale golden. Great hoppy aroma of tropical fruits (a lot of lychee). Rather dry flavor with nice fruity hops and refreshing mild bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied. Very refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from MSM, tap at WB. Clear, lemon yellow pour with a short, brief white headeaving minimal lace. Nose is citrus. Light body, moderate carbonation. Tangerine, lemon, light toast and orange zest. Finish is short, lightly citrus bitter and dry. Fairly uninvolving. Maybe decent as an APA, but significant shortcomings as an IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Clear yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, floral and some light cereal grains. Flavor of bitter hops, faint cereal malt and clean yeast profile. Light body with a thin mouth feel. Good session beer but of course any beer like this is going to be thin and watery.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Todd, thanks! Inactive hazy straw yellow with a thin white cap. Aroma is dank and skunky with pale malts and floral hops. Taste is overly skunked with floral and noble hops and mild herbal notes. Finishes up mildly bitter. Lagunitas makes some really good beers but this one is a bit of a drain pour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a bright golden color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is very pleasant with some citrus and grass with a hint of grains. Taste is citrus and grass hop bitterness with an underlying malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some nice carbonation leaving a nice tickle on the palate. Definitely a brew with some high quality ingredients and highly recommended.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a huge soapy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was pine, grapefruit, catbox, more pine and resin. the flavor was tangy and sweetish bread, pine and resin. Medium length sweet pine and resin finish. Medium body. Ok.
