Fruity nose, full flavor with some nice hoppy elements, light and crisp. Love this beer and hope it is a mainstay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a very clear light yellow with a thin head, doesn’t looke like an ipa by any means, aroma has a nicew amount of fruit and hops, the flavor has a nice crisp front end with a citrus finish, seems a little musty, probably been sitting on the shelf a little while, still pretty enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice dark straw golden color. Nice one finger frothy white head, looks very much like a macro lager. However the hops roll off this beer before you even move it toward your face. Big citrus smell, tropical fruit. Grapefruit smell, slight orange peel with sweet mango type smell. Slight pine smell. Great carbonation, really opens up your palate. Very nice taste, at the front lemony and through the middle there is a definite orange peel and slight grapefruit. Slightly bitter through the middle of the palate, finishes very nice, slight mango taste at the end. Very decent mouthfeel for a 4.65%abv beer. Very enjoyable, this would be a fantastic session IPA.

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.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At a tasting, thanks DSG, no head, a touch hazy lightish yellow colour, aroma of lychee, apricot and some citrus, flavour of lychee, melon and caraway, bitterness just a touch coarse. A good 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.
