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.

arminjewell (6094) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange, mainly yellow with nice fluffy lasting white head. Aroma brought notes of big dank pine, sweet orange, grapefruit, some slight garlic notes but not much, hints of simcoe cat pee as well, touch of biscuit and bready notes. Taste is a mix of orange peel, grapefruit, pine, touch of biscuit, some slight cat pee, hints of vanilla, grass and pine, finishing very bitter, almost too much. Very refreshing, and nice to drink at only around 4.5%

ineedbeer (660) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Aroma is very hop forward with big citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Lighter notes of stone fruit and resin. Light cracker malt background. Pours a very clear, yellow gold with a big, thick white head that exhibits above average retention. Fairly high lacing without any legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a bit of cracker character. Medium bitterness with a moderately strong hop flavor. Notes of citrus and resin with lighter tropical fruit character. Dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice, easy drinking IPA. I wish the hop flavor matched the aroma more, but this is still a great beer.

HighlanderOne (989) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Poured from bottle. Don’t know why the big citrus hop / ocean aroma surprised me. Pale-ish gold with white head. Tasting pine and citrus hops, barley and hay. Dry feel. It is exactly what it says on the bottle - A Fractional IPA.

Garry_Evans (28) - HONG KONG - JUL 25, 2014
12 fl oz bottle. Clear almost lemon colour with white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is hay, light spices. Taste is light malt with sweet highlights and moderate dry hippiness at end. Eminently drinkable and refreshing. A good session IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear yellow gold with a huge fluffy head and a lot of lacing. Aroma is sweet oniony hops and citrus zest. The taste adds grapefruit, lemon, and peach. Very refreshing and light. A top notch session ipa! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JaBier (4831) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle sample at the Lagunitas tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 7/10/14. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of piney and oniony hops with some malt. Cracker malt flavor with pine and onion before a grapefruit finish.

Changed (352) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle. Straight from. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is just a toned-down Lagunitas IPA. Refreshing, obviously. Sessionable. What more do you say?

TET (1573) - FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
A light yellow beer with a quite big and white head. The aroma is tropical fruity, mangos, some citrusfruits, and balanced fructose. Aroma is nice and fruiful. Taste has citrusfruits, low sweetness, some tropical fruits, hint of grain, the bitterness is not very strong but balanced. Almost medium bodied, smooth carbonation. Good beer where the main point is in the aromatic hoppyness. Easy beer to enjoy.

jsmerig (1208) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white foamy head. Aroma of pungent grapefruit, lemon and mown grass. Taste is mild malt followed by a stiff bitterness finishing with a biscuit quality. Dry and crisp.
