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.

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!

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.

This has that Lagunitas tang to it. You know the one I mean? I guess it's proprietary yeast or something. Either way, I wonder if I could pick out a Lagunitas beer on a blind tasting, at this point. Anyways. There are those piney, citric, and salty hop tones to it and a thicker sweet malt base than I would have guessed there'd be. Pretty nice, though it seems a bit unbalanced. Though I say that and I feel like I'm being nit-picky, honestly. Overall, the beer is nice, though I'm not sure if I'd ever go for it again if given the chance. Carbonation seems quite high and bites quite a bit.
