Look is a unassuming, classic clear gold appearance. Decent head retension with ghost white head, again classic appearance.
Nose is big, fresh squeezed grapefruit, tropical notes, and even other citrus like lime come through.
Taste is immediate bitter flower explosion that finishes quick. Upon swallowing bitterfades and delightful sweet tropical fruit comes out. Fresh pineapple, nectarine, orange, and fresh cut grass just underneath.
Impossibly light body. Really clean and refreshing.
Overall this may be my new favorite out of Lagunitas. Perfect for those who want great hop flavor, but dont want taste buds killed. For any fan of the brewery, this is a must try!
Serving type: on-tap

Growler from Kings Park Beer & Soda; pours a hazy gold color with a big 2 finger foamy white head that faded slowly and left good lacing with rings as it went down.
Smells of grapefruit up front, followed by lemon zest, tangerine, coriander, citrus hops, lots of citrus fruit, floral hops, herbs, light spices, mild caramel and light biscuit or malty hints. Almost smells like Sorachi Ace hops add the lemon accents. There are some smells that I could not figure out, but they were secondary to the citrus and grapefruit aroma.
Tastes like it smells with grapefruit up front, followed by lemon zest, tangerine, coriander, citrus hops, orange peel, some other citrus fruit that is hard to distinguish, floral hops, herbs, piney hops, spices like pepper and cinnamon, mild caramel, biscuit, sweet malt and more essence of lemon. It is like drinking a glass of grapefruit juice with zero alcohol showing through. Might be too bitter to session for some, but it's damn tasty and refreshing and I had two pints in less than 20 minutes.
Mouthfeel is light, crisp and zesty with very mild carbonation, a light to medium body and a bitter finish that ends clean and leaves a citrus pucker.
Overall a very good beer that is a really different experience and a really tasty beer; seems like the type if beer to have on tap to maximize the freshness. I recommend this beer and very much enjoyed it.
