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.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 12oz bottle, $1.99 from Olive Tree Market in OB. Crystal clear straw with a small white head. Fresh grassy dry hop nose, nice orange and sprucy hops. Flavor follows suit, adds some non-sweet biscuit malts,, touch of honey. Dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 3-4, not all that bitter, thankfully. Doesn’t have the house yeast character that annoys me sometimes with Lagunitas IPAs. Light prickly carbonation with a light body. Damn fine. Time to pick up a sixer while I can.

Look: pours a golden straw color. Almost yellow. Bright white head that fades quickly. Smell: very dank. Sweet fruit. Taste: citrus. Lemon. Lime. Feel: very light and refreshing. Slight dryness. Leaves a thin film on the mouth. Overall: great beer. Light and refreshing. Perfect to drink on a hot summer day. Could even be good on a warm spring or fall day. Love this beer. First drank: home 9/17/14

madvike (2729) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle - Pale yellow pour with a creamy white head. Oniony and garlic hops, a little citrus, and some lightly sweet malt. Not overbearing malt presence. Taste is similar, with onion/garlic hops, orange marmalade, and dry crackery malt. Finish has lightly spicy, lemony hops with light, dry malt. Thin with full, biting carbonation. Well done.

JohnnyJ (4358) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 15, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 Bottle. Pale gold slightly hazy, with a white head. Hoppy, citrus, pretty dry, a bit grassy, and grain. Nice drinkable beer.

Barreras (980) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Pours a vibrant yellow color with a floral and peaches aroma. Taste is crisp, dry, with a qucikly disappering flavor on the palate. A light bitterness after the swallow, with a straw and grassy tinge. Refreshing and would be nice to enjoy on a hot summer day.

stevoj (2157) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Light bodied but full of grapefruity aroma and taste, pours out clear golden with an abundant airy head. Citra hops rule here, easy to drink, and light enough to have a few.

puboflyons (2143) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 11, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle Light yellow and slightly hazy pour leading up to a white fizzy head that fades. Aroma of toast and floral and earthy hops. Lighter and refreshing body. The taste has a toasty introduction with a grand and mildly bitter floral hop ending. I prefer their Little Sumpin’ series more but this is good.

bwa5879 (655) - Portage, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Pale, bubbly straw pour with thin layer of white head. Strong, fragrant lavendar and pollen aroma, lime too. Carbonation lively/fizzy, medium zesty body, slightly oily, clean finish. Flavors of lavendar, honeydew, biscuit, citrus rind. Very fragrant, full session IPA.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Very light colored pour, nearly colorless. But there’s a nice toasted malt and hoppy aspects carry this beer. It’s easy to drink, has a bit of a wheaty thing going on, and drinks like a full-on west coast IPA, at least in terms of pungent hops. Delish. (#5721, 9/7/2014)

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
Thanks to Cale and Mel for sharing. Quite a pale bright sparkling body, creamy frothy bubbles. Lovely fresh nose of tropical fruits and some citrus. Good strong bitterness. Lengthy bitter finish and very light bodied. An excellent session ale.
