Pale golden body with white head that leaves behind nice lacing. Herbal, pine and citrus aromas. Earthy, lightly malted body with spruce tip flavors. Refreshing and quite sessionable.

Such a light looking beer with a little more surprise than it appears at first. When I first poured it I thought to me, oh, it looks like a bud light. But, when I smelled it, I knew right away that this was something more. Looks can be very deceiving. It has a sweet sweet citrus, floral and hoppy aroma. The first taste I took, I actually thought that I wasn’t going to enjoy it. After the second and third sip it started to grow on me. It has a mix of hops flavor, but not a lot of the bitter flavors that accompanies hoppy beers. Its a smooth, thirst quenching ale from the front all the way through the finish. It hits every aspect of your tongue all at once. Citrus, floral and hoppy flavors stay with you for a minuet after you swallow. Its a pretty good golden ale. Something that can relax you at the end of a long day, just as the description says. I could drink a few of these with no problem. I enjoyed this smooth ale, and I would recommend it to many.

Wow... Very strong and hoppy aroma with herbal, floral and weedy elements. Has the power of a double IPA. The flavor packs plenty of hops but is, of course, not as intense as the aroma suggests...not as bitter, having only a mild bitterness. Also a bit more fruity.
O: extraordinary version of a session ipa, with plenty of flavor and a remarkably full and strong aroma.
Best of this specific style (so far). Would earn a higher rating but for my preference for a fruitier hop mix.

Draft - Grassy, lemon hops with a light sweetness. Pale gold with a rich white head. Fresh leafy hops, citrus and grass again. Refreshing and light, very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale straw with a head that gets flimsy pretty fast. Aroma is pleasant (maybe my favorite feature): hay, hops are floral/herbs, some cheese. Taste is weighted towards sour and bitter. Palate is really watery and thin but refreshing. It’s a good beer. Highly drinkable but not worthy of some of the 4.0+ ratings I read.

Wow!! Another amazing IPA by Lagunitas. Excellent hoppy resinous aroma. Taste is so so crisp and clean and smooth with lots of carbonation and no bitterness. So easy to drink. Very happy flavor with a bit of malt to even things out. Clear yellow color.

The gold standard for session IPAs. Rich hoppy nose - I actually preferred the nose to Lagunitas Sucks’, tasted on the same evening - with a balanced hop flavor. Best of all is the ABV - enjoy a 6-pack while watching the game and you’ll have a way better time than your Bud Light buddies (though they might feel better the next morning).

12oz bottle poured into my ipa glass. Pours a clear straw yellow color with a medium whit head that leaves light lacing. Smells of pine, citrus and resin. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a good hop presence. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Great flavor for a session ipa on the same level as All day ipa from Founders but with more of a west coast infuence. Great beer.

A golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is big on citrus, some pine, and yeast. The flavor is lemon and pine with a little funk in the finish.
