On-tap at Lagunitas

Pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head. Intense hop aroma. Lots of citrus and tropical fruit hops. A bit of floral character and some intense, resinous pine. Minimal malt aroma. The flavor is amazingly citrusy, lots of citrus peel, too. Heavy on the pine and herbal hop notes, too. A slight malt presence in there. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Poured a murky medium copper hue with a whispy cap of foam.

The smell featured resinous dripping piney hop.

The taste was absolutely dominated by the resinous wet hops which imparted waves of juicy sweet orange and oily pine.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a monumental hop experience.

From notes taken at brewery yesterday:

6.2% ABV in a brilliantly flavourful beer with unnamed Sebastopol hops. Pours a hazy golden colour with a decent white head and a pleasantly oily mouthfeel. The typical fresh hop greenness is well hidden with pineapple and mango, plus other tropical fruit tones. A fantastic aroma that translates into a well balanced but resinous and hop-forward taste. Nice mix of sweet and bitter, with a lingering tropical fruit finish.

A stunning beer that I was disappointed to learn will not be bottled...

Charity pint @ O'Brien's

A- hazy light gold with no head and no lacing

S- sugared oranges rolled in banana leaves. Very very nice!

T- initial burst is a pretty muted sweet malty taste, but then the awesomeness ensues! A heavy handed assault of FRESH squeezed orange and grapefruit swoop in

M- a little high on the carbonation, but overall a pretty full bodied beer. The fresh hopping leaves an awesome coating in your mouth. Reminds me of after I just ate a clementine

D- very nice. Zero booziness in this beer, and the explosion of flavor makes it fun to keep drinking
