Pours translucent mahogany, frothy off-white head that sticks around leaving some lacing. Nose: bright waft of cotton-candy sweetness encompasses a solid hop bouquet, gritty and citrusy. Taste: melon-sweet upfront yet quickly undercut by a pleasantly grating hop bitterness. The middle is all hops -- drilling a hole through the roof of my mouth, lovely -- leavening off into a lingering hop feedback and static, as the malt sweetness curls around the edges of my palate, fading. Middling carbonation, slick mouthfeel with some weight to it. Another good one from Lagunitas.
