Had a pint of this at Mill Valley Beerworks. Great place.

A - Very pleasant copper color, very impressive head retention. Kept a thin layer of foam through the ENTIRE time. Thick and creamy lacing left an imprint of off-white bubbles at every gulp. Nice.

S - great hop aroma that was consistent throughout. Pretty impressive how the smell of the hops pervaded with every sip.

T - great hop forward taste. Classic American hops. I experienced this beer as a more refined Hop Stoopid, and without the dried apricot presence.

M - smooth and creamy.

O - I have to say I really enjoyed this. Try it if you can!

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.

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.
