COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.

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%, it’s a perfect session beer. This is great.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 "it’s not 5 o’clock 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

sherm1016 (1177) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2012
12oz bottle from Sonoma Cellers Delavan. Pours a crystal clear, bright yellow with a whitehead and some lacing. Aroma is Frash, green, hoppy, grassy. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, pine, a bit watery, maybe a little bready sweetness, but not much, with a light, bitter finish. Not bad, but the other "Day" IPA is better.

Pours a very clear, very pale yellow color with a nice foamy head that lingers a long time. Big lemon and grapefruit aroma. Taste is a fresh citrus hop taste. Solid bitterness in the finish. A little toasted malt is detectable. While this IPA is nothing special, its still a very drinkable session IPA.

bb (6861) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle. Golden-straw beer with a whitish head. Grapefruit and pine aroma. Grapefruit and light malt flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and light pine lingers with light malt.

Surprisingly bitter. Soapy hops and big toasty malt taste fight for attention. Feels a bit watery as might be expected. The lower strength makes it nicely dry from all the hops, but there is a metallic aftertaste unlike Lagunita’s other IPAs.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops with some pale malts. Flavor the same. Average to almost light texture. A good beer for what it’s supposed to be.

pours a clear pale yellow-straw with a small white head, above average carbonation, and good lacing. smell is of hops, citrus, a touch of pine, and some sweetness in the back. taste is crisp, hoppy, some pine, light grapefruit, grass, and a little malt in the end.

This one is OK. I hoped for more from such a great brewery but this was a bit too malty and out of balance for such a light beer. Still easy drinking and good just not my thing,.
