A: Poured out a clear amber color. Two fingers of off white head with retention that doesn't quit. Left a ring of lacing around the top of my glass.

S: Piney and floral with just a hint of orange citrus. There is a malty backbone that is present but somewhat subdued.

T: Mostly floral with a subtle sweet orange flavor. Hop bite is a bit surpising.

M: Crisp and smooth. Light to medium body that is actually a bit creamy. Medium carb.

O: Very good pale ale. Unlike many of the other Lagunitas offering I've had, this one has more of a bitter hop presence versus the booming maltiness I'm used to from them. This one actually kicks more than some garbage IPAs. It is somewhat understated in the sense of intensity sort of like Dale's Pale Ale and could pretty much be considered an IPA.

Pours a crystal clear bright gold. Decent head retention/lace. Looks good! Smells like loads of every type of citrus you can imagine. Big fruit nose. Taste is definitely big citrus hops...grapefruit/lemon being the primary. If u dont like hitter hops, this is not your beer. Carbonation level is fairly high, but it works with the flavors. Overall, I'm impressed. Lagunitas brews some high quality pale ales! If u like hops, this is a good one.
