Served on draft into imperial pint at Whole Foods. Was surprised to see it available. I am a confessed IPA fiend and Lagunitas is a very hop friendly brewery that rarely disappoints.

Love the copper color and eggshell head. Nice lacing.

Nice warm IPA smell some citrus zest, not overly fragrant however.

Tastes like an IPA should. Hops hit hard with the citrus and the fresh grass and stick to the tongue momentarily before givig way to a smooth finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp as an IPA should be, every taste cleanses.

Solid beer I could turn into and IPA session.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Wine 101.

A - hazy orange with a soft cap of dense, white head that has great retention

S - grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit

T - bread, birthday cake, grapefruit, pineapple

M - smooth, medium bodied, well carbonated

This was fantastic. The tropical, citrusy aroma and flavor were spot on. The sweet, cake batter-like malt were a perfect compliment to the very forward hops. I could drink this all day long.
