A-very yellow gold with a nice thick white head

S-oh wow! this smells amazing. comes in with a scent of super sweet grapefruit and just a touch of sea water. really impressed here

T-it comes in with a very crisp taste of fresh hoppy grains. the grapefruit is still there, though slightly muted. there's a certain amount of peppery spice to it as well. this just tastes amazing. there's some slightly tart nectarine in the after-taste. i'm not lying about these flavors. they're all there. this is quite amazing.

M-medium creamy carbonation with a creamy finish

O-i knew i was going to like this, i like almost everything from Lagunitas, but this time they went above and beyond. they brought so much complexity out of such a little beer. this is the sort of find that makes trying new beers my hobby. this is just beautiful.

Now you can finally enjoy a sessionable IPA that wont make you take an afternoon nap. Nose is very citrus. Orange, grapefruit, tangerine, clementine, some pine and a very subtle malt profile. The taste is lemon, tangerine, tangelo, slight grapefruit, orange peel and just a bit of honey. Really awesome hop profile for such a low ABV beer. And it tastes so fresh! I know its not a fresh hop ale but it has that fresh, wet taste. The hop profile here is actually better (in my opinion) than some of the uber-hopped ales like Palate Wrecker and Ruination. Very nice.

Damn, Lagunitas hits it again with this brew! Served with a nice sized foamy, cream-colored head that slowly settles to a light cover and lots of lace. Color is a clear, pale gold with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a very pleasing and aromatic blend of hop, malt, caramel, fruit, citrus, with a bit of pine. Flavor's like nose, sweet/bitter/carbonic tang all perfectly balanced. Body is perhaps a trifle thin, carbonation is great. Finish is like flavor, average length, and superbly drinkable.

One of my favorite session beers. Very clean and crisp with a nice hop presence. Light straw color, citrus on the nose, perfect carbonation. Amazing flavors produced from this the low ABV beer. Some of my other fav session beers are Gumballhead and Anti-Hero just to give you a better idea of what I like.
Cheers

This is the grail of sessionables. I've had Terrapin, Founders, and a host of others, none of which compare.

Pours a beautiful straw color with scents of citrus, resin, and a touch of sweet malt.

Taste is spot on. Beautiful hop presence with rich citrus and resinous tastes. Just a touch of malt for balance. Refreshing, crisp, and hoppy.

Mouthfeel is perfect. Light, perfect carbonation that washes the hoppy flavors over the tongue.

Overall, I can say that this is the perfect representation of a sessionable IPA. You can have a few of these without getting full and the flavor never becomes boring.

Let me just come right out and say it - I love this beer. Lagunitas Daytime pours a gold-tinged yellow with a finger of white head. The aroma is so good. So, so good. Do you like citrus, tropical, and piney hops? Great, because that's all you'll get on the nose here. No malts, no wheat, just hops. The taste is, similarly, a hop bomb of epic proportions. Well, as epic as you'll get at sub-5% ABV, that is. There's really nothing but citrus, tropical, and piney hops here, it's like drinking a hop soda. So good. The mouthfeel is light and a bit too "oily", probably because of the massive amount of hops that Daytime has when compared to it's malt bill. The drinkability is fantastic. The fact that this beer is a seasonal absolutely guts me. Daytime is really right up there with Hill Farmstead's Edward for the extra-hopped APA or "session IPA" category. A superb brew.

Pours a very straw colored light yellow, nice white head on the top of it, .75" in depth. Aroma, massive green vegetal hops all up in your grill. Just a shitton of hops in here, oh so pleasant, I don't know if it can get any better than this! The six pack I bought, I waited on the last bottle for about a month to drink, the aroma was still great, but had faded slightly, as to be expected.

Taste, just so light, lets nothing get in the way of the pungent hops. Pine and pineapple to a lesser degree. The beer is so simple. Ultra light malt, ultra bodacious hopping. So easy to drink over and over. I had mine while disc golfing, laying around the pool, tailgating, shooting bottles. There's so much of a light body, you could really pick any type of fruit flavor descriptor coming from the hops, it can hit you with papaya and mango, then apple, pear, whatever. There's just nothing getting in the way of some pretty dynamic hopping.

While Alpha Session and Humulus XPA were my go to light hoppy beers, those are expensive and difficult to obtain. Move over, Lagunitas Daytime is now the daytime, err, session, err whatever champion in my book.
