Lagunitas is one of the breweries I found early in my craft beer days, and really helped me get into hoppy beers. But never went back and actually reviewed a lot of the beers, so trying to do that now.

Bottling code, but no discernible date. Pours a light fizzy head, little creamy, hits 1/2 a finger before fading back, nice lacing, nice crystal clear golden honey colored.

Nose nice hops, a mild citrus and rind, fruity and floral hop presence, a little grassiness to the floral hop, faint grainy malt base, fair fruity hop.

Taste brings nice light hop profile, quite floral and a bit grassy, with a nice fruity hop character too, hard to pinpoint the fruit but a fruity like profile, and some fair bitterness that increases a bit as it gets a little spicy like on the back end. Light soft malt base, almost crisp lager like finish, with a big bitter back end, mildly spicy hops, but mostly grassy floral and fruity.

Mouth is med bod, a bit soft, decent carb.

Overall pretty nice, soft malt base that almost gives a lager like quality, nice hop profile not too heavy in any direction, pretty enjoyable yet very drinkable and sessionable, and a nice hoppy bitter finish.
