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.

pintbypint (2831) - Edmonton, Alberta, - SEP 25, 2012
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.

Would drink again, no evil hop after taste, refreshingly snappy. My second beer from this brewery.

harrisoni (14842) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Bottledog and drunk on a train. Kinda kicking into the session ipa style. A good one though. Still itís not a lager so who cares? Over carbonated. Itís really drinkable. Love the peach apricot grapefruit orange flavours like orange squash on the finish. Just a little toasty on the hops. And carbonic acid. Otherwise pretty damn good.

decaturstevo (5390) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Deep yellow pour with slight clinging foamy head. Aroma is light bready malt and a lot of citrus. Flavor is light slightly sweet malt with a solid citrus flavor. Medium lasting bitter for me. Light/medium body with slightly aggressive carbonation. Another solid ipa under 5%.

jamestulloch (1910) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of cucumber, salted lemon and tangerine. Flavour of pink grapefruit, lychee and watermelon sweets. Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Sweet and fruity.

AdamT (237) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2015
12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Golden hue, normal clarity with somewhat lasting white fizzy head. Virtually no lacing (I think there is something wrong with my snifter) Aroma of orange citrus hop, grapefruit and lemon, some floral notes as well. Light citrus grapefruit hop up front with more of a lemon zest finish. Fizzy on palate, good mouthfeel. Okay, but not my favorite Lagunitas brew.

seymour (1623) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a crystal clear golden colour with sudsy white foam and lace. Bigger aroma than flavour. True-to-style American Pale Ale: grainy, grapefruity, dank. Light body, strong carbonation, hoppy aftertaste. Good not great.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle from Chevy Chase Beer and Wine. Nice amber body with medium head. Nose is hoppy and sweet. Taste is hoppy also and prickly. Texture is prickly. Herbal and smooth in the finish.

drjay44 (2890) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, white head, with heavy lacing, over a slightly hazy yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, light cereal malts, balance to the hops......taste is heavily to the hops, with pine, resin, grapefruit, light floral tones, light cereal, balance heavily to the hops....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a light refreshing, quenching, hop delivery vehicle. It fall into the category, and really does taste good unlike some others in the style. They are all, however, in many ways, highly hopped Pale Lagers.BJCP 8/3/14/4/8

Bottle from Plaid Pantry. Light golden straw in color. Nose is sort of sweet with tropical fruit notes, followed by some more pungent bitterness. Good and bitter throughout. The body is a little lacking. Pretty tasty sessional brew.
