3.68/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Clear, light golden hue with a large bubbly head and nice lacing

S: Lots of hops up front: pineapple and grapefruit especially; really mostly a lot of citrus aromas with just a touch of sweet maltiness underneath

T: Lots of citrus, grapefruit bitterness up front but nothing really to balance it out, so it's just hops; I like it and it's refreshing but it's missing a backbone

F: Too thin--though crisp and refreshing

O: I like this and it would be a fantastic mowing beer but it is pretty thin and unbalanced but I suppose that's what you are going to get when you have a sub 5% ABV on an IPA

DayTime packs an absurd amount of flavor and taste for a sub-5.0% ABV beer and gives Stone’s Levitation a run for its money as the most delicious sessionable craft beer in existence. I’ve searched in vain for the hop profile, but I am fairly certain that DayTime is brewed with copious amounts of Citra. In fact, following my second or third time having this delightful brew, I realized what it reminded me of most — Zombie Dust Light, if such a thing existed. DayTime is pure beer-drinking delight, and the only misstep Lagunitas has taken here is the fact that it was issued as a seasonal/limited release. Still waiting for DayTime to get the call to the year-round big leagues; in the meantime will just have to wait for the 2013 iteration this fall.
