This reminds me of a session IPA. Very little malt character. Which is different from most Pale Ale's. This is a piney,hoppy, and slight tropical fruit Pale Ale.

A finger and a half worth of of pale light khaki colored crisp slightly airy forth that displays decent retention... Once receded there is a full thick veil of lacing and a surprisingly thick collar... This one is 110% translucent... The color is a medium gold with vibrant orange undertones... A moderate bit of varying paced carbonation rises randomly throughout... A good bit of lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the session proceeds... The aroma is earthy and slightly dank... It's a strong all malt aroma dominated by bread crust and graham crackers... Perhaps some very faint hints of toffee and orange zest as well... The aroma was a good indicator of flavor... In addition to the strong malt base that was expected there is also a distinctive hoppiness and a slight metallic presence... On the fuller side of medium bodied... Dense and sits heavy on the tongue... Moderate carbonation... This one is a text book American Pale Ale... Nothing off putting, but nothing overly memorable either , just a rock solid offering which should come as no surprise from Lagunitas...

Pours a light orange/ dark yellow with a white head that laces the glass. The smell was really nice with scents of grapefruit and lemon peel as well as some pine. The taste was good as well mixing the hops up front with a nice amount of malt to mellow out into a very clean finish. Very happy with this one.

Bottle poured into a wine glass. Citrus, biscuit, hop aromas and flavors. Good carbonation.

Have not had this in about a year and a half. One month old bottle. Laggy does not make a bad brew imo, but this one is just ok. Very easy drinking for what it's worth.
