3.76/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on April 18, 2014.

Like so many beers in its class it has a handsome looking copper-amber pour with an off-white head that fades into a ring.

Biscuit malts and floral hops penetrate the nose. It is better than a pale but not quite as hopped as a Double IPA.

Medium body mostly and smooth.

The taste brings out a decent malts-hops balance with the hops leaning toward the floral side. Lingering bitterness at the end. A beer that one can like.

Aroma of stale peaches, something sour, can't quite place it. Sugars as well. Pours a thin gold, little head, no lacing. Taste is medium sweet and bready, a bit of a hot alcohol aftertaste; not unpleasant, not great. Lagunitas makes a lot of great beers and this just isn't one of them -- thin, sweet, oddly sour.
