Served in a Lagunitas mason jar at Bigby's Pour House.

Apparently, we're already up to 16... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunrise amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mild grapefruit zest, light flowers, very light honey, and light biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a touch of light watermelon here or there (or maybe that was just my imagination running away with me (without copyright issues with the Temptations)). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice little pale ale, nothing special, but something I could easily drink several jars of while I'm here.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear golden and light amber. Thin near-white head. Irregular lines and spiderwebs of light stick left down the glass.

Citrus zest, floral, light biscuit, and a little sweetness in the aroma. Simple and straightforward. Smells like a mild version of many of Lagunitas's beers.

Not a hugely flavorful beer. Mild citrus zest, floral notes, some biscuit, and mild caramel sweetness combine nicely, but this simply doesn't have a lot of flavor. Unlike many low ABV IPAs brewed these days by the likes of Alpine or Societe, for example, this one tastes particularly light, low in alcohol, and somewhat boring.

Thinner in bodied than preferred, with low-moderate carbonation.

A fairly boring session IPA, though without flaw.

The beer comes in a light golden color.

The aroma has a huge peachy hop with tropical fruit, pineapple, just juicy and a great aroma.

The flavor follows with citrus and tropical fruits and clean biscuit finish. The beer is quite drinkable though not too much on the bitterness.

A decent pale ale.
