Pours a caramel orange with plenty of carbonation. A nice soft, big, clear, off-white, bubbly head
Smells of bitter Citrus hops and more. Not a huge smell.
A nice piney and citrus hop taste with very good balance in the malt. Leaves a nice hoppy, bitter twang behind.
Great warming feeling left after the crisp hop finish.
Overall, another great APA from Lagunitas.

Pours a clear golden orange, with just under an inch puffy white head. Great retention on the lacing, still covering the top 2 in. of the glass when finished. Wonderful pine and resin smell, tasting similar, as is expected with many Lagunitas ales (see Hop Stoopid and Waldo's Special). Bought a six pack and glad I did.

Man I remember the old recipe for this stuff when it was just eh, not so good. This version, very nice. A blend of that copper and orange color, brings the standard 3/4" white head. Aroma smacks nicely of amarillo hops I believe.

Taste is just solid pale ale all the way. Extremely hoppy with a super mild and dry toasted pale malt base. Very citrus like. I could crush so many of these in a single setting. Its summertime in a bottle. When you don't need juicy ipas, when you don't need session ipas, you just need a real serviceable pale ale. Where this can still be elite 1st tier pale ale is it is the other end of the spectrum from say SNPA. There isn't a real caramel malt impression and sweetness here, this is dry hop vehicle.

Pale golden amber color. Totally clear. Substantial white foam cap with big lace.
Hearty, earthy and subtle fruit hop aroma dominates.
A seriously dry, full and refreshing feel.
Flavor has a very impressive balance of traditional English style malts and earthy, fruity hops. Doesn't ever cross into IPA bitterness, which is nice. Malt and hops are harmonious. Flavor is very bold but easy to throw down.
A go-to pale ale for the ages.
