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.

Poured bright gold. Very strong oily grapefruits and pine hop nose. Then things start to unravel, way to thin, unbalanced hop to malt. No support from the malts. Almost undrinkable. This didnít work for me.

(bottle) Clear, bubbling straw body, small white head. Very fruity nose. Citrus (orange, grapefruit) and some pine hops, strawberry, grape, toasted grain. Light body, carbonated. Dry hop flavor, medium bitterns, grain, bread, undertones of fruit. Very dry.

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin), with notes of celery and squash. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Wow, Lagunitas really squandered an opportunity here. Instead of offering bright, floral or tropical fruit hops and a crisp flavor balance, they just dumped a shit ton of raw resinous hops in this and sucked all the malt out of it. Itís quite vegetal on top of that. A really clumsy, misdirected attempt at something that could have been a great session beer. A truly sad drain pour.

The aroma is incredibly hoppy with grapefruit and floral type hops and light sweet malt. The appearance is straw gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma and so easy to drink itís almost crazy. The palate is thin but OK. Overall a great beer.

This beer has a great aroma with fresh hops are a nice bouquet. the beer itself is actually very thin but very drinkable. The way too many flaws but its still very enjoyable.

Bottle. Clear, lighyt golden color with an initially large froth of white foam that fades to a slick. Aroma is dry, bitter hops with intermixed resinous pine and underlying sweet malt character. Taste is straight ahead hop bitterness with pine and a lightly toasted and bready malt character lurking in the background. Clean, dry mouthfeel. Drinks with a lot of flavor and if I were guessing blind Iíd put it at a 6% abv IPA. I like it!

Atheist_Peace (977) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours golden with white head that leaves a little ring of lace. Lots of fresh citrus and spruce on the nose and not much else. Really sprucey. The same on the palate. Lots of spruce and not much else. Good but simplistic.

Reid (1944) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 12 oz bottle poured into my PBR Goblet, from Rothís Sunnyslope market S.Salem. $6.99 a six pack Pours a clear gold/straw colour with a lovelly thick and bubbly white head. Gorgeous spicy/resiney hop notes in the aroma a little hay like malt in the backing. Taste all hop but yu can tell the caramel malt is in the back,but its all kind of wishy washy i am afraid compared to the aroma. Ok palate..thin and drinkable Not bad but was expecting more

backdaft (227) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a short lived diminishing white head. Aroma is of grassy citrus pine. Dry biscuity pale malts blend with tangy lemon citrus hops to provide a really nice balance. Crisp, dry, bitter finish. A very nice session ale from Lagunitas!

high_on_hops (669) - Burlingame, California, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a short white head. I has a wonderful hop aroma of pine, grapefruit, and grass. The flavor is light, with a slight hop flavor up front and a maltier middle and balanced aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
