Bottle from Harvest Market
Dark straw color with a huge bubbly white head. Dank resinous pine hop and faint crackery malt. Decent enough beer, but I have trouble with the body and mouthfeel of this style.

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma boasts nice lemon, big grapefruit and a little pine smells.
The taste has a mild lemon bitter flavor, a quick honey sweetness in the middle, and finishes with mild grapefruit bitter. Nice.
The texture is light and crisp.
Tasty.

Poured into a tumbler on 05.31.14.

A: 2 finger fluffy white head. Crystal clear straw yellow body.

S: Strong grapefruit and malt sweetness.

T: Grapefruit and sweet malt dominate. Flower and pine are subtle.

M: Creamy. Perfect carbonation.

O: This is a fantastic session IPA. It somehow manages to have complexity and it has a perfect balance. The grapefruit flavor isn't as strong as in other Lagunitas beers, but again, it is a session beer.

Rating: A

Pours pale yellow with a nice white fluffy head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, some light tropical fruity notes. Taste is of mild pine citrus hops, grapefruit, some grass and grains and a bit of biscuit malt to round out the flavor profile. Palate is a light medium body, crisp with mild carbonation, plays well on the palate. The finish is pine citrus grapefruit hops, some grass and grains followed by a bit of biscuit malt. Goes down easy. Overall a well made, tasty session IPA for the summer

Pours clean and golden with a rich, thick head of white suds. Lace is massive, heavy, and frilly.

Nose is delicious and enticing floral and citrus hoppiness. Happiness.

Taste is explosive and bursting with delicious bitter grapefruit and citrus hops, with a tinge of pine and floral underneath it all. Hop-heavy and very easy to drink, Day Time is a wonderful session IPA and, alongside Founders All Day, Victory’s Hop Ticket IPA, and Stone’s Go To, among the top of the heap.
