Illinois

4/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From: Binny's, Schaumburg, IL
Bottled: "26065116" stamped on bottle's neck
Glass: Tulip

Pours a 1cm head of fairly clean, white foam, made up of small and medium-sized bubbles, which eventually fades to a thick ring around the glass and a few sparse islands of residual foam atop the beer's body. Lacing exists and is substantial, with residual sheets covering the sides of the glass, creating a somewhat doily-like pattern. The beer's body is semi-hazy, golden-orange out of light, a bright, but pale yellow-orange when near a source of luminescence. Carbonation is visible, largely streaming from the base of the tulip glass.

Dank hop aroma, with peach and nectarine being most noticeable, along with a bit of generic hop-oil body odor. Some grapefruit and generic citrus also exist. In general, a substantial and heavy collection of scents for a session brew.

Taste is surprisingly light, yet full of fresh fruit flavors, including some nectarine, peach, tangerine, and juicy mild grapefruit. Specifically, the taste begins with some mild pale malt sweetness alongside slightly bitter light grapefruit and orange citrus. Mid-palate features tangerine and grapefruit/grapefruit rind bitterness and flavor over a very modest malt base. Back of palate picks up continued, though milder, bitterness along with some peach, nectarine, and grapefruit flavors. Aftertaste is mild, with some modest bitterness and malt graininess.

The body of the beer is fairly light, perhaps light to medium-light in weight, with substantial carbonation that prickles the palate slightly, but also foams the beer up substantially. The result is a slightly prickly, yet overall smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Finish is semi-dry, with little to no stickiness left around the palate.

Gainesville House of Beer - on-tap

A - pours a very light golden straw. Bit of a haze to it. Finger of beautiful frothy white head. Great lacing. Good carbonation visible.

S - woah. Citrus explosion! Smells beautiful. I want to bathe in it. Zesty lemon, some grapefruit. Some faint grassiness.

T - Very refreshing. Sessionable. Has a faint lemon shandy taste to it. Light but noticeable hop bite at the end. Citrus is present here, lemony, slight bitterness of grapefruit like the nose.

M - light body. Extremely drinkable. Flows across palate very nicely.

O - impressed with this. Lagunitas never disappoints. Would recommend for hot summer day.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pretty hoppy but nothing compared to Stone's go to. I'd drink it if offered for free.

A - 3.75 - straw colored, white head, OK lacing
S - 4 - grapefruit, floral, minimal bready malt
T - 4 - grapefruit, floral, bready malt
M - 4 - surprisingly big body for 4ish percent. No alc to cover. Aftertaste minimal.
O - 4 - it was alright. Drank because someone offered it to me, apparently its widely available and a decent price

3.95/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Finger thick pale white head. Foamy and light like champagne. Pale golden beer with steady streams of carbonation and perfect clarity.

S- Resinous, floral and citrusy hops. Robust aroma with hints of onion and earthiness. Sweet malt offers a bit of balance.

T- Hint of tangy citrus, but almost watered-down. Earthy with some grapefruit. Still getting hints of onion.

M- Light with mid carbonation. Refreshing and crisp even.

Good, light sipping beer. I'm in.
