If the "session IPA" is to replace the classic American pale ale in the future- Lagunitas is ahead of the curve with this dog of a low-bodied hop-bomb!

Its innocent enough austere is light gold, nearly emulating pilsner with a caramelized gaze. But with the taste looming, the nose is taken back by the IPA-like scent that squarely focuses on white grapefruit rind, under-ripened orange and a strong grassy and leafy quality. Its grain and caramel sweetness is supportive of the hop onslaught at first but that is all short lived.

The malt sweetness drops out of the middle palate, and leaves creamy malt textures to fend for their own- quickly dominated by the citrus, leaf and herbaceous hop flavor. Strong carbonation brings the vegetative flavors to life and gives the palate a good scrubbing heading into finish.

Closing with strong bitterness that stands tall in the absence of malt- dragging with it the character of citrus pith, grass, stem and leaf. Its chlorophyll bite hangs in the back of the throat and is slow to relinquish its grip. The rest of the flavors are fast-fleeting and leaves the palate clean, crisp and refreshed.
