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.

Really nice and hoppy with 4.65% alcohol. Awesome session beer! Light body, I could definitely drink a bunch of these! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damn, Lagunitas hits it again with this brew! Served with a nice sized foamy, cream-colored head that slowly settles to a light cover and lots of lace. Color is a clear, pale gold with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a very pleasing and aromatic blend of hop, malt, caramel, fruit, citrus, with a bit of pine. Flavorís like nose, sweet/bitter/carbonic tang all perfectly balanced. Body is perhaps a trifle thin, carbonation is great. Finish is like flavor, average length, and superbly drinkable.

Reviewed 10/14. 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. A: Pours a medium straw color with fantastic clarity. Iíd say it looks like a pilsner, but not many pilsners Iíve seen featured the kind of frothy, thick head this one does. The two finger eggshell colored head retains acceptably. S: This has the smell Iím accustomed to from Lagunitas IPAs, with a combination of herbal ígreen-nessí and grapefruit peel. Just a faint hint of sweetness abounds, as well. T: The malts here are very neutral and crackery, and are seemingly only there to provide a canvas for the hops to shine. Speaking of, the hops start out as being slightly piny and herbal, before gradually transitioning to a citrusy finish. This has a combination of lightness and balance, which equals massive drinkability. M: Clean, dry, and refreshing. There are some accumulating hop oils after a while, but hardly enough to ruin drinkability. Itís not íwateryí per se, but it goes down like hop-flavored water. O: Iím not normally this much above the rAvg on one of my reviews, and even less normally willing to give out 20ís, but this has everything I look for in an IPA. Itís light, crisp, juicy, somewhat inexpensive, and even slightly complex. Put simply, I could buy this stuff by the case and never get tired of it.

Crystal clear light golden yellow. Aroma is awesome, very floral and citrusy, lots of pineapple, crisp malt body. One of the best Iíve had in a long time.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Good session beer. Very drinkable. Citrus notes come through. I still prefer the Sumpiní but this is a good alternative for all day drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

obguthr (3756) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Strong aroma of lilles and grapefruit, approaching that of pine needles, despite it being several months old. Clear amber, medium head, sticky lacing. Nice floral hoppping with just light citrus compliment. Lillies in the finish. Light mouthfeel. Immensely sessionable, quaffable, and flavorful. Fantastic crafting.

Wow, this is an excellent session beer (4.6 ABV) with heaps of west coast hops that jump out of the glass before the first sip, beautifully balanced with a crisp, mouth cleansing finish. This may be my go-to beer poolside this summer!

Appearance: Pours a straw gold with a modest soapy cap of white foam. Holding it up to the light, you will notice some very active rising bubbles in the clear body.

Aroma: Beautiful big citrusy danky nose, fresh grass. Pretty close to opening a pack of hop pellets. Some candied orange too as it warms.

Taste: A punch of citrusy hops, very dry pale malt, a little earthy hop bitterness that finishes very clean. Medium duration for the lingering hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Thin and on the high side in terms of carbonation.

Overall: Amazingly tasty and drinkable. A beer this small can show some flaws, and Iím glad to report there are none.
