Cloudy gold pour with lots of lace. Thin head and a big hoppy nose. Sweet sugary notes. Thin mouth. Flavor is full of grass, lemon & citrus. Lots of sweetness from the grain. Full flavor, but low alcohol.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location/Date:Draft at Chef Geoff’s Rockville on May 24th, 2013.
Appearance: Pours a nice clear gold/orange.
Aroma: Aroma of light piney hops.
Taste: Light -medium bitter, not over powering. Like a lite version of
Palate:Light body, lingering aftertaste.
Summary: A really flavorful beer for the style, although I’m unsure how easy it would be to get. Probably not cheap to mass produce either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear yellow with a frothy white head great lacing. Grassy, weedy, light biscuit, straw, and wheaty aroma. Taste is high refreshing, weedy, light straw, resin, and citrus with a light bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. One of the better session pales I’ve had.

They should have named this beer Lagunitas Sucks!!!!!!! Because it does. I was out with a friend and he scoffed at the color. Piss yellow. His first impression of the flavor was liquid lemon jello and artificial hops and I agree. Lagunitas does it again with there mass marketing, mass producing of massive amounts of swill drinking masses. Now that I am done ranting I will say this. It really does suck!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up on tap at Fate with a crystal clear pale gold body supporting a bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up citrusy lime, grapefruit and then some mango slices on dry crackers. The taste is thin crisp and refreshing, by design I’m guessing. It has snappy malt sweetened grapefruit and mango that is deep in flavor yet light too. Yummy stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2013 Draft at Good Dog. Straw pour with a small foamy white head. Fuller flavors than expected for such a light pour. Grapefruit. Tree gum. Lemon pips. Thistle. Green banana. Sugar cane. Mango. Pineapple. Celery. Juicy but dry. Very nice.
