Pours a golden amber with a thin bubbly head that retains really well.
The aroma has a lot of citrus/pine spice with a lot of fruit notes (grapefruit mainly maybe some mandarin?) with a nice pale malt background. Very IPA.
Very crisp with the first sip and the hops are more subdued than the nose lead me to believe
The bitterness (which isn't too much) hits you right up front and carries throughout the whole flavor. It leaves a nice hoppy citrus on the back of your palette. very drinkable beer with some good carbonation.
If your looking pale ale that is a wanna be (not in a bad way) IPA this is a good choice. I'm loving the hops in this one.

Always love getting my hands on some new Lagunitas stuff.Poured into a nonic a dull light to medium golend with a thinner but well retained white head.Great aromas the hop profile really stricks out,pine with citric notes mixed with a lightly sweet caramel/biscuit malt base.The flavors dont hit home as much as I ecpected,the caramel malt notes show thru upfront with the citric,piney hop notes finishing but its a little lighter than expected.Mouthfeel is a tad thin but the beer is quaffable.

Bright orange with a thin white head.
I'm greeted by floral hops on the nose with citrus, and doughy malts not far behind.
Grapefruit/citrus flavors blend with the pale malt sweetness. Still, it's hop driven for the most part.
Not the tip-top, but flavorful, sessionable, and respectable.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear yellow with a medium frothy white head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is biscuity malts and grassy, slightly metallic, hops.
The flavor is sweet biscuity malts with a pretty big grassy hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.
Overall, an OK pale ale with good bitterness. The biscuit malt and grassy hops aren't my thing though.

12 ounce bottle, w/o freshness info to be gleaned.
Pours clear, lighter amber, with a golden hue. Very loose off white head, shows some retention, before ging to a larger bubble film, collar and bits of again looser lacing.
Hops on the nose, on the musty, leafy and herbal side.
Pronounced hop presence is the lead dog here. Bitter and dry, somebody else said this one seemed more British in style and I agree. Tastes like a well hoped Brit IPA, doesnt have that citric/grapefruit assault of more West Coast style IPAs...anyway, of course I like, but I'm not in love. Servicable, sessionable, works fine in a pinch, just wouldnt call it a "go to" IPA.

The beer pours a golden orange color with a white head. I get a of different things in the aroma. At first I get a lot of orange and some biscuit malt, but then it opens up and I get a lot of fruit - pineapple, pine, papaya and some cattiness. The flavor is not as complex. I get some pine and biscuit malt as well as some papaya and pineapple. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
