3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle from Julio’s.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with small head.
Aroma : Crisp and fresh floral hops. Light piny notes. Some malt. Fairly restrained overall but still some complexity.
Taste : Malt and floral hops. Minimal piny notes. Very light resinous notes. Finish dry floral hops with light bitterness and malt.
Palate : Fairly lively carbonation. A bit softer would have made it better IMHO. Dry and thin mouthfeel. Not too thin but almost.
Overall : Quite sessionable but carbonation is a bit too strong to be quaffable. Nicely dry and refreshing. Nice floral hops. Not bad but could be a bit more complex and palate could be improved a bit. Still a nice drink, I’d have a second one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew pours a clear straw color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and sweet malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering citrusy hops aftertaste. Solid Session IPA all around.

A nice session IPA. I like what Lagunitas did here. However this offering does not stand up to their other products. That said, if I want a session IPA, I will definitely consider this one.

This is my second, and last, " session" ipa. To me insipid in all aspects of taste along with a rough unpleasant finish. Anyhow will save some bucks by just sipping a good ipa or apa

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden brew with lots of pine and cedar aroma. Taste is loaded with pine hops. So while it smells and tastes great it is thin and watery and for the low ABV it has the big ABV price. Had been looked at this one but had been turned away by the low alcohol content but then HEB finally pulled some packs to sell as singles. Now I can say I tried it and yes it is good but still not something I will purchase again.
