Brew poured to a slightly cloudy off golden color with a good sized white frothy head that had good retention and left quite a bit of lacing. Aroma here is very nice as the citrus hop aroma really comes out, gives a juicy like aroma. Sweetness in the nose comes through and goes together well. The flavors of this one are very good as well, citrus hops hit you the hardest and the flavors of them are excellent. Malts seem to give a slight caramel flavor, also maybe toasted malts? Perhaps just a touch to sweet, but that would be the only thing that I can say might be a retractor. In my opinion this is a well rounded and very tasty beer. Nice Lagunitas offering.

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.
