Great pale ale packed with flavor. A hint of citrus on the pallet. This beer has a tan appearance, with little head.

So love this! Bright grassy hoppy aromas. Sweet, syrupy, citrussy. So good. Juicy hops, pine, hay?

12 oz. bottle poured into mason jar glass. Sparkling amber color with a generous white head and healthy amount of carbonation. Head retention and lacing are both good. Signature big grapefruit Lagunitas hop aroma. Flavor follows suit with the citrusy flavors up front with a smooth caramel finish. Another winner from Lagunitas.

Pours a clear amber color. One finger diminishing head. Aroma is lots of barley malts and citrus hops. Taste is hoppy as you’d expect from Lagunitas. This version is a great ale.

Pours straw yellow with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, pine, and hint of yeast. Well-balanced flavor with grapefruit, rye, pine, and caramel with touch of hops. Great beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour from a bottle. Nice golden haze with a medium head. Aroma is well balanced with hops, citrus, grass, malt and a hint of yeast. Taste is very crisp and refreshing. Near perfect balance of citrus, grass, pine and hops. Palate is smooth, crisp, refreshing and dances through different varieties of hops. Probably my favorite beer Lagunitas makes!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light grapefruit nose with a hint of tropical fruit and a bit of malt. Slightly brothy as it warmed up in the glass. Medium bitterness, a bit harsh and coarse, but with a pleasant bitter finish. A good beer, but the flavors didn’t quite hang together in the way that they do for great beers of this type.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. pour, on tap at Lucky’s 13 in Bloomington, MN. Consumed on 3-9-14. Weak aroma of light hops and cream. The smell is overwhelmed by my girlfriend’s nearby quesadillas. The beer doesn’t smell bad, but I get very little aroma at all. Pours a clear gold with a small to moderate amount of long-lasting, off-white/cream-colored head. Produces good lacing. Hoppy, tangy, piney, dry, and slightly sour taste. Very IPA-like taste. Tangyness from the rye. Grainy flavor. Medium body. Lively and soft in the palate. Overall, the beer tastes pretty good but I can barely smell it. I count it as quite the disappointment. One of the most overrated beers I’ve encountered recently, according to me.
