Notes / Commercial Description:
A healthy dose of 2-row malted barley, a bit of wheaty-esque-ish-ness and loads of Ekuanot hops to create a super smooth and velvety ale with a fruit and resin-y- finish like biting into a freshly pickled peach. Easy!

Had on tap. Easy indeed. Extremely drinkable and smooth. Save for summer, perfect for outdoor drinking on a warmer day. Wheat goes well with peach, pear and floral flavors. Is it the best APA ever? Of course not, it isn't trying to be. I ti content, and rightly so, to be a delicate yet flavorful ale

As with most lagunitas, its bitter and even with wheat notes feels kinda dark for a summer beer. I am waiting for lagunitas to produce an ale that does not hit me in the face.

Poured from a 19.2 ounce can (why?!) into a Teku glass.

Very pale, clear gold with a touch of milky haze. Light finger of cloud-white head burbles and churns.
Deliciously fruity. Lush stonefruit and biscuity malts. Mandarin orange juice, dried apricots, lemony hops.
Delightfully crisp and full of fresh apricots, this beer is a fruitier, nouveau cousin to the near-ideal Twelth of Never. The endtaste has a bit of the bitterness of peach fuzz before finishing clean and hoppy with an arboreal flourish.
I thought it might be too dry or crisp, but it's dripping with fruit and robust.
This is uncannily calibrated to my personal preferences: really fruity hops, bitter, lightweight, moreish. Highest recommendation.

L - Cloudy yellow, with 1/2 a finger of head

S - Tropical fruit, pineapple, lots of citrus. Delicious aroma

T - Like the aroma, tons of juicy citrus and pineapple flavors. Bitter aftertaste. Classic Lagunitas taste. Very tasty!

F - Medium body and well carbonated

O - An awesome pale ale from Lagunitas. This could be a go-to for the style

From their really tall boy 19.2 oz can. A good colored pour, light golden and frothy head, sticky lacing. It's as advertised, a hop forward, tasty beer. Very smooth and drinkable, a touch of bitterness on the finish, but nothing more. Glad to see more APAs coming out now.

"Easy" drinking? A phrase that should die as far as I'm concerned, but I picked a can of this beer up at the gas station anyway. I did not expect to like it as much as I did.

Nice hazy orange body with a modest head and some retention.

Very prominent tropical fruit aromas, especially pineapple, but I also made out citrus and floral. Taste is a tropical-citrus blur--lemon, grapefruit, melon, pineapple--that settles somewhere around nectarine. Enjoyed the citrus bite and sweet, smooth finish. As far as mouthfeel, they are not wrong in calling it velvety.

Pleasantly surprised!

This has alot going on and it has so much going on it's hard to categorize and/or describe. Bitter is more up front and a citrus, pepper, yeast swings through the finish.

Taste rating in words: It's a car backed full of junk for a long trip.

Mild chill hazed yellow beer with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly.

Exceptionally aromatic. Strong citrus hop aroma with the glass two feet from my nose sitting on a table. Bitter oranges and a whiff of menthol and eucalyptus. Smells woody, oily and bitter. Whiff of hard water and faint aspirin scent.

Starts out neutral sweet with a strong savory flavor. Mineral water taste and bitter citrus flavor. The citrus can be described as the taste of biting a grapefruit rind.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall a very hoppy pale ale that is probably more suited to a hop heads taste buds.
