Poured into Lagunitas jar.

A - Golden

S - So yummy! Like a citrus pine forest. I can't wait for the hops after smelling this.

T - Whoa. This is %4.65? It's got everything you'd want for a bitter hoppy IPA but it's not heavy, it's refreshing.

M - Lots of carbonation and smooth at the end.

O - This thing is honestly a Hop Soda in my opinion and I love it. With its modest alcohol % I could throw pack a sixer of these reading on the beach like a breeze. WOOh. This is Lagunitas, baby.

It's getting warm here in San Diego, and after a weekend of drinking heavy things, I wanted to relax in the pleasant warmth with something that wouldn't put me to sleep. Alas, Lagunitas DayTime IPA!

APPEARANCE: Pale, straw color, with a two-finger head that dissipates into a medium-thin ring.

AROMA: Excellent aroma on this one - straw/earthy malts share the space with fragrant, light-citrus hops. It already smells refreshing!

TASTE: The hops are very floral, with traces of lime and grapefruit. They play very nicely with the malts, which bring hints of straw, earth, and a little touch of sweetness.

MOUTHFEEL: Crisp, dry mouthfeel, with minimal lingering bitterness at the back of my tongue.

OVERALL: I could drink this beer every day. Light, crisp, and refreshing. There's not a whole lot going on with this beer, but it's simplicity is perfect. For a session IPA, this is as good as I could have hoped for.
