3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz brown bottle. Yellow pour, big frothy white head. Lots of lacing. Huge hoppy nose, mix of pine and grapefruit, sharp orange and a hint of dank. Taste is highly hoppy with grapefruity notes, some tropical fruitiness and a mild soapiness, bit of orange, light malt. Finishes dryly, medium amount of bitterness carries through, grapefruity hops linger. Light body, medium carbonation. Overall, a nice brew, great aroma, high drinkability, even though the soapiness detracts from it just a tiny bit and the body seems a little thin. Worth trying.

Single bottle. Clear golden pour with minimal head. Doughy aroma with some citrus in the background. Well balanced taste. Thicker mouthfeel than expected. No real bitterness on the back end. Very sessionable.

This is a good overall IPA. Nothing overpowering. It is a good beer that will go with just about anything, almost all year long.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A more or less clear one, golden in color and topped by a small, white head. The aroma is rather hoppy, piney, citrusy hop pellets, with little room left for the malts. It has a nice, suitable bitterness, itís quite dry, and with a nice carbonation level. Some citrus peel, a good dash of pine cones, some pale malts and a touch of bread in the flavor. Lasting hop dominated finish with a nice drying bitterness. Some oily, citrusy notes too, like chewing on orange peel. Didnít like that very much, but itís just a touch of it so no points deducted. Anyway, itís a quite refreshing beer that I could drink a bunch of. 150622

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
DayTime is suitable name for this session-able brew. It pours the color of sunshine with a fluffy layer of cloud cover on top. Aroma is like the stuff that grows in the sunshine: grass, flowers, and trees (okay, pine). Flavor captures the best of each. Grassy freshness, floral nectar, and bittersweet pine sap. There are also some toasted biscuit flavors from the malt and hint of green tea earthiness. The mouthfeel is crisp and supremely refreshing. Not too sticky, not too bitter - it hits the happy medium in about every way. If you need some hops in your life before sundown, DayTime is the way to do it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours an exceptionally pale gold. Light cat pee aroma, with soft tropical fruit notes. It has a thin body, yet is very satisfying, with a rounded mouthfeel, that gives a jammy finish.
The comparison below to Coors Light below is very bizarre.....

This is the worst attempt I have found for a session IPA. In my opinion Lagunitas is one of the finest craft brewers and I find it hard to believe they would release a product that looks, smells, and tastes like Coors Lite or hopped up bong water.
