Notes / Commercial Description:
Since Born Yesterday is bottled and shipped the very same day—probably the freshest Fresh Hop ale you'll get your paws on—the arrival date is kinda in the air 'til things get closer and nature says so. Kinda like a fresh lil' newborn, only this puppy is made from whole-cone, un-kilned Mosaic, Equinox, Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo hops from our farmer friends in Yakima, WA. It's borning soon. Wanna be the first to know when? You've gotta guess first …

Draught pour into stemmed pilsner glass. Moderate 1-finger head dissipated quickly. Prominent grapefruit aroma. Initial hit is very complex with each of the hops coming through. The next few seconds of mouth feel spreads across your tongue with a ever so slight chalkiness. The finish is back to grapefruit lingering around for a couple minutes. Overall, a well made and balanced beer. Grab it while you can and post your notes about this complex beauty.

This beer has a TON of grapefruit on the nose, which is great. I actually talked to a Lagunitas Rep while drinking and it was hinted that Cascade and Chinook hops were used but in the capacity of "wet hopping".. (something with Cryogenics being used within the first 24 hours) It's very strong for a Pale Ale and they might as well just call it an IPA. It does finish very smooth though without the puckering feel of most IPAs. Ratatat was playing which set the mood perfectly.
