A- Light golden and clear with moderate carbonation and a white one finger head. Light wispy lacing clings to the glass.

S- Strong malts with sourdough bread. Dank and pine hop aroma is abundant.

T- Sour malts and dank hops come on strong, then dissipate gradually to leave a nice spicy feel.

M- Seems to start flat but redeems itself nicely. Medium bodied .

O- This brews best attribute is the look, and it is sexy. But I think this one goes like this... Its not you, its me... We should see other people... Although I can appreciate the the time put into this ale, it just isn't my cup of tea. I remember this one differently though and I need one more go at it to decide.

3.84/5  rDev -9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance:
Clear, deep gold body that is crowned by a thin, white head. Minimal lacing but decent carbonation.

Aroma:
Very interesting... I find myself struggling to describe it. Sweet fruit notes such as pineapple, mango, kiwi, and other various citrus notes. Citra hops are apparent. Thin wheat notes. And.... burnt rubber?

Taste:
Much, much sweeter than the sweet nose led me to believe it would be. What little bitterness can be found here resides right up front and a bit on the tail end, both vanish quickly. The majority of flavor here is composed of tropical fruits. Light pine and honey notes can be found. No alcohol is detectable.

Mourhfeel:
Light, clean, zesty, and refreshing. Light carbonation. Easy to drink.

Overall:
A unique take on the style but too light on hop character. Definitely worth grabbing but far from a favorite.

4.19/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Orange and clear with moderate carbonation rising to a minimal foam like head. No fresh by date on bottle.

S: Pale malt is the first thing to hit the nose. Then hops and fruit, like pineapple and banana. Very inviting. Reminds me of tropicana tropical fruit juice.

T: Alcohol followed by a rush of fruity hops, very similar profile to Lagunitas Sucks, but with a wheat like backbone.

M: Clean tasting beer, balance is all there. After several sips I can feel the malt sticking around on my palate.

O: Lah-goo-KNEE-tuss does it again. A wonderful offering from a brewery that can do no wrong...so far. Just moved to California and can't wait to head down to Petaluma to check out the brewery. *Good game pat* to the boys at Lagunitas (no homo).
