Draught on 28th July 2009 at Rattle & Hum, NYC. Clear gold with good white lacing head. Grassy hop and some floral aromas then deliciously hoppy throuhg to a LONG satisfying finish - very good characteristics for a US IPA. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy with fine particulate softly carbonated and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and floral. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of hops. An OK brew just nothing special. milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Aroma and flavor both have notes of grass, herbal and pine with a hint of resin. Some malt is present underneath the hops. Pretty decent session IPA. drfabulous (8683) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Light citrus. Bitterness. Bright orange body. Overall light sweetness that lingers. Nice IPA. ononews9 (52) - Hanover, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2009
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. very pleasent citrus (marmalade) aroma. a little bitter in taste, could be a little sweeter on the citrus.

12 oz bottle served in a clear pint glass. Pour is a light bronze with a small layer of quickly dissipating white head. Nose is hops, orange rinds, grass, and light caramel. Taste is Pine tar, hops, and citrus. The finish is a lingering bouquet of orange/citrus bitter. This wasn’t bad, but I would have enjoyed it more if it was a bit sweeter and had a slightly heavier body. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2009
On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Pours a clear, copper-bronze body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of creamy lacing. Aroma is mostly a boatload of grassy citrus with a light caramel sweetness. Flavor is exactly the same. Lots of grassy citrus hops with a medium bitterness and a light caramel malt keeping this just balanced enough. More grapefruit and lemon comes in during the finish before it dries with a long lingering taste of grassy citrus. Palate is relatively thin bodied. Overall, a pretty straightforward westcoast IPA. Tons of hop flavor and just enough caramel malt to balance. Damn tasty, however, and its about time Lagunitas came to KC. DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 22, 2009
UPDATED: APR 28, 2010 Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a plastic cup (sacrelig... I know): Copper appearance, citrusy/hoppy/piney taste. Tastes a little watered down. Needs more malts, man. #096 on 22082009, DG. BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2009
Light copper colour, nice fluffy white head. Fruity, citrus and slightly piney hop aroma, very nice. Light to medium bodied, with nice hop/malt balance. I expected a little more matliness though, more thickness on the palate. But a very nice, easy drinking Pale Ale. cgarvieuk (26100) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle at Cropredy ... copper ... big foam head ... sweet pale ale hop nose... soft toffee ... light hop fruit ... easy.
