I enjoyed this bottle in a willybecker chilled, review from notes.

The color is pale golden visibly carbonated with small white head w/ fine bead and lace that sticks. The smell has a nice hop aroma with light pine and grass with light grapefruit and that simcoe type scent. The feel is thin up front with medium carbonation and light sweetness wiht medium bitterness w/ slightly yeasty texture and low astringency level.

The taste is hop forward with light pine and grassy flavor with a light toasted accent in the malt with mildly sweet flavor mid palate with herbal element and tangy hop flavor continuing into the mostly dry finish. This is a pretty decent pale/session IPA with a nice amount of hop flavor even though it is on the lighter side, easy on the palate and lacks any harsh hop bitterness like some in this arena

Never surprising when California-minded brewers reveal ales that are aggressively hopped, dry as a bone and try their darndest to make their beer taste like weed, but what is surprising is to see the blend coming in at sub-five percent alcohol!

Daytime kicks off with a pale gold body and the slightest of hoppy hazes. Its frothy head rises to reveal all those aromatic hops with as little of a caramel malt presence as possible. Ruby red grapefruit, kumkwat, mango and apricot frame the fruity oils while herbal notes of almost-garlic, almost-onion, but certainly chive and fresh-cut grass are sure to have the cannabis crazies a callin'.

With the thinnest of caramel and honey malt support, a dry and bready creaminess supports all the hop character that covers up the beer. The same citrus, tropical fruit and boutanical qualities of the nose and early taste bloom upon the middle and bring in a smooth bitternerss as the sweetness continues to fade.

Light bodied but full flavored, the sessionable ale shines with hop acidity and resins as its bitterness registers strongly late with citrus pith and verbena leafiness. Grassy, chivy and fruity- the ale lingers deep with hops but without the associated sweetness of fruit, malt or density. Its effortless weight is a delight for all hop-heads without much of the threat of premature intoxication. (Don't they make a pill for that?")
