Poured on tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, copper-gold coloring, with a fluffy, filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of heavy resin, dank pine, and tart grapefruit forward, with a subtle caramel backbone. Flavors are a blast of pine needles and pitch forward, with a subtle pepper spicing, solid dose of tart citrus, and subtle cracker and caramel backbone. Smooth and crisp body, with a solidly bitter and citrus tart aftertaste. Lemongrass sneaks in there at the end. Dry, crisp, bitter finish. Great beer.

On tap at Tenaya Creek brewery and Aces & Ales in Las Vegas in May, at Lagunitas in, August I think. The usual tangerine color for some of the Lagunitas hoppy offerings, mild and thin white head on it, .4". Aroma was a big Lagunitas hop blast, although kind of standard for Lagunitas, it was very good, phenomenal coming from anyone else.

An ok body, its a little sweet, some tangerine, maybe apricot. Mellow body, I wouldn't say there is a ton of caramel to it, but it seems to have more of a body than most hoppy offerings from Lagunitas. Its like a fusion of an amber and an ipa hopped primarily with Cascades. Yeast presence is offering something in the way of fruit ester I would guess, as the hops are strangely not all that imposing here, especially when compared with the much lighter Daytime. But still very good nonetheless.

I did notice that the pint I had at Aces & Ales was superior to the one I had at Tenaya, for whatever reason.

4.08/5  rDev +0.5%

A - murky orange/golden tint, with lacing and good carbonation

S - sweet citrus, really pleasant

T - grapefruit/pineapple blend with not too sweet bread

M - medium bodied, good carbonation

Tropical Pale/IPA style. Enjoyed it after work. I recommend it for the style!
