Bottle (2013)

Liquor Stop
San Marcos, CA

A truly beautiful beer. Perfectly clear orange and light amber and copper, with a whipped-cream, very tight and small-bubbled near-white head that lasts and lasts. Leaves messy, irregular spiderwebs of lace down the glass. Gorgeous. Perfect.

A blast of citrus in the aroma (orange and pineapple), along with a touch of bread and sweetness, and clean caramel. Complete.

Moderate bitterness, lots of citrus, and a bit of bread make this an incredibly easy-drinking, delicious wheat ale...though given it blind, I'd say it's a damn fine IPA.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. Slightly sticky, but very drinkable.

Fantastic. This is the type of daily drinker I love. I would love a keg of this on at home. For the style, this is an amazing beer.

Pours amber orange with a few dancing bubbles in the light. Head is white and thin.

Smell is superb with that hits you in the face Lagunitas aroma.

Taste is crisp and citrusy sour piney but not over the top.

Heavy taste on the back of the palate is welcomed. Disappears quickly and leaves you wanting to repeat..

Crisp and bright on the palate.

Overall a personal favorite and new to me this week.

Pours a hazy, amber-orange with a long lasting head. Some sparse lacing on the glass. Heavy hop aroma with lots of grass and lemon and light bready malts in the background. Medium bodied and very refreshing despite its thick texture and bitter finish. This is a damn good beer and I would be happy drinking it anytime of year. I also found the blurb on the bottom of the box very entertaining... well worth the read.

"You ever notice how everything has to be today's version of yesterday's whatever. Well, whatever. Sometimes we wonder what the world would be like if everything was perceived for what it is, and not what it reminds you of. The sun would rise everyday as if for the first time, you'd work as if newly born, you'd see your lover next to you anew, the air would smell like flowers, work would be like the first day back in school, a beer would make your eyes roll back in your head in ecstasy - well, maybe not - but you get the idea. Cheers!"

From a 12oz. bottle to a pint glass, served at 40F.

I'm relatively new to Lagunitas, this is the third brew I've sampled from them. It made me feel like their growing reputation is deserved. Their IPA is alright and I thought the Brown Shugga Sub was a bit overrated, but this one is really great.

A - Dark golden body and it blows up into a billowy soft white head that lasted most of the way through my pint.

S - Really fresh Cascade hops. Best representative of them I can think of.

T - Esters of peach and apricot are emulated by the hop profile, slightly sweet up front and backed up by some nice bitter hop level at the end.

M - Tastes fresh and light, the finish has a bit of bitter as it should I think and the clean finish leaves you wanting more.

O - I think I'm going to have a new go to beer this season when the weather gets hot. We happy...
