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.

Obfuscate (163) - Minneapolis, - FEB 27, 2015
There are much better session iPA’s on the market, ones you can read a clear best by date on the bottle so you drink them fresh. Lagunitas hides in code only someone who researched it could figure out then prints in dark black so you can’t see it. Very clear straw color, decent citrus hops on the nose but are not as pronounced in the taste. Moderately dry, easy drinking, not bad but there are so many better session IPA’s if your going to spend the money.

Zekada (356) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2015
Pours golden with a rich white head. Crisp smell of hops and citrus. Taste is subtle with hops, some syrup and lemon grass. palate is a bit too thin and oily. Overall a nice beer though I wish for a richer taste.

First experience with a session IPA. Crisp, clean, and refreshing. This beer met my hops craving.

chribban (238) - SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2015
Clear, light-yellow beer with a one finger high head that dissapears fast. A little lacing stays on the glass. Nose: Green apple, pear, grapefruit, grass, pineapple, citrus and crackers. Taste: Citrus, wheat and pine. Body: Light body wwith a crisp carbonation. Oily texture. Easy drinkable Session IPA!

oh6gdx (21326) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Bottled@Guitars, Umeå. Yellowish golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, mild resin, sap and some pleasant citrus to it. Flavour is fruity, floral, nectary and has some wooden and earthy notes as well. A bit catpissy as it warms up. Tasty and refreshing session beer.

tectactoe (2632) - Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle: Golden, nearly banana-shade of yellow with decent clarity. Foamy white head settles to a thin layer leaving some lacing behind. Aroma is kind of muted. Mild bouquet of citrus rind, grapefruit, pineapple, & other vague, albeit zesty fruit notes. More akin to the bitter "peel" side of things, rather than juicy & fleshy. Herbal, floral, & mild piney back-end hop notes. Crispy & wet with each sip, seems just a touch watered down. Even for a "session" IPA. Floral hops, hints of white pepper, grassy bitterness, a touch of hop oil. Mid-palate showcases more of the fruity side of the hops; citrus peel, grapefruit pith, tangerine rind. A very, very small bit of cracker malt towards the finish. Fairly solid session IPA choice, but perhaps slightly vapid, even considering the style. I’d choose Founders’ All Day IPA over this every single time.

Brandon1989 (384) - Euless, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2015
This beer pours a slight hazy yellow golden color with a thick soapy white head that left some good lacing around the glass. The aroma pine, hops, citrus, lemon peel, and mild breadiness. The taste is very subdued compared to the aroma, as if it were their normal ipa watered down. As a session ipa and for the style I am sure that is what they are going for with this beer. I pick up the hop resin, pine, citrus, and breadiness. The mouthfeel is light and somewhat dry and the drinkability is high.
