Little Sumpin' HazyLittle Sumpin' Hazy
Notes: We're going au naturel for the summer with the classic wheatley-esque-ish-ness brew you know and love. With a special dry-hopping of Cashmere, Citra & Mosaic on a bed of Centennial and Chinook. Juicy, catty, and leaves you with a hop scratch that you can't help but tickle with another taste. Does that clear things up?

Sure, it's fun to throw one of those glossy layers over things... like that Juno Plasta Mandalorian Grain filter. You know, the one that whitens your teeth, lifts your cheekbones, and only shows your good side. And who doesn't love to sit back and geek out on all the tweakage. Like when ya dial up the Clarity, push the Digital Saturation to 11%, and pull back the Fromage Filter by 2x. Then go max out the Attractivo Settings, select a new vacay background and tag your favorite Dogfluencer for those little spikes of serotonin. But sometimes it's nice to let it all be the way it really is. Raw. Unfiltered. Au naturel.

4/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Pours a translucent (wasn't this supposed to be hazy?) golden yellow with a two finger, frothy white head of suds. Doesn't look unfiltered.

Aroma: Sweet peaches and pineapple. Some slightly tart, yeasty wheat. Mild hoppy garlic/pine needle. Caramel and honey in the background as well as a soft biscuityness.

Taste: Juicy and savory. Nectarines and pineapple jam flavors upfront amidst hints of soft pine sap. Flavors transition into floral and dry sensations of apricot skins and peach. Somewhat creamy, with yeasty notes of banana bread balanced against undertones of spicy white pepper with a soapy/floral bitterness. Moderately tart on the finish, with a little nip of acidic grapefruit and orange juice.

Feel: Medium body. Moderately carbonated. 7.2% abv is in line with the flavor profile.

Overall: One of the better offerings I've had from Lagunitas' limited releases. This one is very sweet and fruity with big notes of citrus and tropical fruit that's balanced out by a dryness from the yeast and gentle bitterness of the hops.

Pours a barely hazy amber with billowing off-white head, a mess of lace trailing. Smell: ripe melon, peach candy, lime zest, tangerine and wheat biscuit in the back. Taste: lemon-lime, pine needles, tangerine, less-ripe melon, white peach. Another good IPA from Lagunitas. Is it hazy enough to proclaim HAZY? Maybe not, though it does nail the lightly fluffy body.

Hazy gold with a medium tall white colored head.

Smells like a pine tree growing oranges. Some flowery scents like a saison. Distinct smell of perfume.

Starts out dry and very citrus. Very dry, something like tasting orange extract on the tip of your finger. Very dry orange flavored ale.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall this is the answer to too sweet and too hoppy IPA.

Tried one of these yesterday and I hope it was a mistake. There was no great taste, no haze at all and nothing to recommend it at all. My daughter and I are going to use the remaining 5 with a dogfish randallizer to see if coconut, coffee, pineapple, grapefruit or even raisins will make these more drinkable

Pours a hazy yellow color, with a huge frothy, long lasting lacing head. Sweet, hopy aroma. Flavor is sweet then bitter, fruit and hop flavors. Good body and feel. Overall a very solid, fruity neipa.

Pours pale yellow. Could be hazier. Tastes a little weak. Slight malt character. Light bitterness in the end. Good but lacking that defining characteristic.

12oz bottle, date stamped 180 9 2. Hazy yellow-orange body has a foamy off-white head that settles into a thin layer of froth. Earthy citrus pith aroma - orange and grapefruit perhaps; a bit dank and green. Bold hop forward flavors similar to the aroma: grapefruit, orange, earthy & grassy raw, green hop, passion fruit, melon, and some biscuity grain. Resinous medium body, moderate carbonation, finishes seemingly more bitter than thd 30ibu it is. This one is good, but not great. I enjoyed drinking it, so I'd probably get it again if the price was right.
