A: Super light colored with significant carbonation

S: Hops and citrus lemon lime. Uniquely intense.

T: Again, intense hops and pure citrus. The lime taste shines through anything else.

F: Light-bodied with a lot of carbonation.

Overall: Phenomenal session IPA. Very light and smooth. Extremely hoppy but not bitter or difficult to drink. Intense lemon-lime citrus. I didn't know what to expect when I bought this one but it blew me away.

Poured from a 12 FLUID OZ's bottle into a pint glass. It's daytime, so what better time to drink and review a DayTime!

Appearance: Pours a yellow golden blonde ale body with a thin white head. Nicely carbonated, lighter looking beer.

Smell: Nice orange hop aroma from the first crack of the bottle through the pour. I smell Citra, maybe Nelson Sauvin? Very aromatic!

Taste: Ah, the downfall of a daytime IPA. The malt body does not stand up to the 54 IBUs worth of hops. Grassy, citrusy hops. Not unpleasant by any means, but not outstanding either.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly viscous for such a weak bodied beer. Not bad. Not much aftertaste, unfortunately.

Overall: A great beer for those who want their hop fixes without the generally accompanied ABV. A rather standard, albeit hoppy, blonde ale that I would be happy to drink in a bar/brewpub type setting. The more I drink, the more I am digging this.

The Day Time is decent....certainly not my favorite from Lagunitas. The beer poured a clear yellow color with thin white head that is not lacing much. The scent has fresh hop that borders more citrus than pine. The taste is refreshing and smooth. The beer is more bitter than sweet. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is decent. I will try this again if available next summer.
