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.

Pour is clear medium gold with a medium foamy white head. aroma is pungent resiny, pine, pineapple/citrus fruit hop. Flavour is fruit and pine light biscuity malt. Somewhat muted but still enjoyable.

AWISLguy (1048) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours a very clear pale golden yellow with a white head. Nice lacing. Aroma has pine needles, resin, some citrus and a vegetalness. Taste is very light and crisp; sweet fruit, resin, lemon peels and a bit of a quirky off-taste (a strange herb?). Finishes very lightly, with more bitterness than sweetness. The idea of this style is very good, and have seen multiple versions lately (Founders, O’so) that probably were started with that terrific San Diego session ale of Stone’s. Easy drinker. Mostly good tasting.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - SEP 8, 2012
355mL. Low haze starfruit pour. Medium soapy white head. Leaving complete soapy lace. Nose is heavier kumquat pulp, fresh flowers. Taste is meaty kumquat, very clean with some soapiness. Palate is very thin and refreshing. Like IPA-lite or APA. Not bad. Good session stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Out of the bottle from Uptown. Pours clear golden with not much of a head. Smell is hoppy, but the taste is sour instead. Not my favorite beer from Lagunitas.

illidurit (2051) - Petaluma, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle shared at the September 2012 Santa Cruz tasting. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Great minimal malt character, but the hoppiness is way too subdued. If they packed a ton of hops on top of the crisp pils malty base, this would be really good. But they didn’t.

Aurelius (3906) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2012
This smells like a red ale. Squat, west coast potato masher bottle. Clear gold. Smells like cat whiz -- piney, urea. Sweet, fruity notes at times. Brothy, dry, herbal. Medium body. Flabby and not crisp. Vegetable, light diacetyl finish. Market Square Liquors.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2012
12 oz. bottle - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a one finger thick white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is big pine and resin hops. Flavor is pine, resin, and light floral hops with a touch of malt sweetness trying to break through. Finish is crisp and hoppy. Medium body. A good beer. I love these Lagunitas IPA’s.

sailracer (376) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours light gold with a small head. Great hop aroma. Initial taste had some hops up front and a brief flash of malt, but then the bitterness took over and covered up the malt for the rest of the bottle which was a shame. A good idea for a beer, but a little too bitter for my tastes

IrishBoy (3752) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
12 oz bottle from Safeway Salinas. Nose is pine, grapefruit, and a hint of mango. Slightly hazed yellow with a big white head. Flavor is bitter (what else) with a smattering of piney resin.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - SEP 8, 2012
9/8/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Clear golden pour with a surprisingly almost bright white head that sticks around and laces plenty. Really nice hop aroma with citrus, pine, dank hops, a touch of cat pee, and a bit of creamy, caramelly malt. Similarly bold, dank hop flavor with a bit of sour citrus in there as well and more of that creamy malt. A bit light on the body, but that is to be expected. Not bad!
