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.

Draft at Snallygaster, DC on October 13th, 2012. Another I finally got to try. A nice amount of hop flavor and nose, but good balance and would be enjoyable. Now I need to find it cheaper than the $15!! a six pack the store near me was offering it at.

MartinT (8236) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Chewy cereals are surrounded by citrus fruit, flowers and ginger connotations in this fashionable, refreshing Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the misty golden.
-Mouthfeel is quite prickly and more chewy than expected.
-The bitterness is moderate, with a few sandy resins.
-The hop fruitiness is also reminiscent of gooseberries.

Bottle.

Great aroma of fruity hops. Taste was hops but not as much as you'd expect from the aroma. Not very bitter and actually a bit on the lighter tasting side. Lots of carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a tumbler on 05.31.14. A: 2 finger fluffy white head. Crystal clear straw yellow body. S: Strong grapefruit and malt sweetness. T: Grapefruit and sweet malt dominate. Flower and pine are subtle. M: Creamy. Perfect carbonation. O: This is a fantastic session IPA. It somehow manages to have complexity and it has a perfect balance. The grapefruit flavor isnít as strong as in other Lagunitas beers, but again, it is a session beer.

patrick767 (3672) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2015
bottle - Pours gold with a one finger head and a rich citrus hop aroma. The flavor is of crisp, aggressively bitter hops, citrus, and toasted malt. Itís easy drinking and quite tasty, maybe the best of the session IPAs Iíve tried so far.

JBPortland (967) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 9, 2015
12oz bottle pours clear gold yellow with a finger of head. Nose is bright citrus, pear, orange, pineapple, grassy with a touch of round cracker malt. Taste is similar to nose with some nice grassy pine and soft resin, light (but not thin) body, medium bitterness, and clean light malt. Finish is balanced bitteness, lemon, grassy orange, pear, citrus. Excellent.

Fratto (2700) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. Light pour with a white head. Aroma is sappy and citrus with bread. Taste is a little bitter, bready, and citrus. Nice finish.

commonmac (447) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle purchased at Elevated. Consumed with commonshawn in a Belgian snifter glass. Very light golden color with a noticeable amount of head. Lemony, citrus aroma. Quite vibrant. Grassy notes come to the forefront at the initial taste. Bitter characteristics pick up as the sip moves forward finishing light and bitter. The flavor is bright but the bitterness kind of overwhelms. Sessionable with the hoppy Lagunitas stamp. Probably made for a hot summer day not a winter afternoon in Mpls. Not one of my favorites.

commonshawn (477) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle with commonmac. Light gold with frothy white head that doesnít last long. Pine hop and a bit of citrus nose. Bitter spice, sharp, and crisp. Heavy citrus peel hop bitterness throughout. Tastes like an ipa version of this style, which is not surprising. Good beer, but I like the night version better.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden straw color with white head. Fruity hops on the nose. Slightly sour.
