Very Good
Hazy WonderHazy Wonder
Notes: This fascinating ferment is full of fabulous Sabro, Comet, Citra and Cashmere hops for a smooth, tropical fruitiness. A slightly bitter, densely hazy phenomenon that's strangely light in mouthfeel, keeping you satiated and still coming back for more.

Nose has a bit of produce dept funky yeast.

Taste is a hint of Lagunitas funky hops, with a dried grapefruit rind predominance.

Feel is light and watery at first with a rather dry finish yet it also seems a bit smooth and fuller on the finish.

Good but not a repeat buy for me.

The white bread of hazy IPAs? It is very light in taste and seems to be less filling in terms of calories. Not a bad beer to drink, but it is not going to knock your socks off.

Pours a hazy yellow with thin light white foam lacing. It’s very citric and hoppy. A very bright IPA that would be a nice summer refresher. Nice variety of hops adds complexity. Very little malt.

one of the second generation classics from lagunitas, and one of the most consistent, lightest and cleanest, and most drinkable hazy ipa types in the game. this came after a long time of lagunitas not getting on the hazy train, but also at the height of milky starchy thick beers passing for finished and good, so this was a bit of a shakeup to that from one of the big guys in craft, and i still prefer this to a lot of what is more trendy in the style these days. straw yellow, just sort of unfiltered looking, light and without any real viscosity, an average white head both from can and tap, airy with some web lacing, fizzy like a soda too. the nose on this is awesome, sabro, cashmere, and citra among others, cashmere drives it though, lemongrass, ripe melon, kiwi fruit, just awesome, especially when its fresh and at its best, this one just dazzles in the aroma. citra is enhanced by the others, it has just a bit of dankness, clean citrus juiciness, and a light candied orange thing too, melted popsicle maybe, really modern and good, and shockingly low bitterness for lagunitas. the flavor is almost as good, now with hints of pineapple, white grape, white airhead candy from back in the old days, this is definitely juicy, unique, and even sports hints of coconut flesh and pink gum. i really like how light this feels, but how some grains other than barley can still be tasted, its got a nice softness but feels effervescent too, dry on the swallow and without the green hop burn to close so many of these have that are just hopped into undrinkable oblivious. credit lagunitas for this one, this is way better than most, underrated on here for my money, and easily their most relevant currant offering. dont sleep on this one, its gold standard for the big boys...

Pale yellow, hazed up of course, looks like cloudy Mtn Dew. Smells like lemon, taste is also heavy on sour lemon, maybe more than any other beer I've ever tried. The malt is light and like a cracker and is firmly in the background; while the hops are above-average bitter and heavy on the lemon-lime and pineapple. The side of the can says it's bright tasting while being hop-forward and unfiltered... That about sums it up

This is a 12oz. can poured into the 20oz. weizen glass. I've got one thick finger of pure whit froth. The head slowly recedes leaving thick lacing behind. This is a light yellow hazy ale with ample carbonation.
The aroma is sweet and tart citrus and a hint of malt.
The flavor is sweet fruit up front, a touch of tart grapefruit, with a pleasant crisp finish. There is not a lot of hop bitterness if that is what you are seeking. The sweet and tart balance this IPA quite nicely.
The feel is on the lighter side of medium with a fizzy feel.
This is an easy one for me to enjoy, very refreshing after working ten hours then spending another couple hours in the woodyard

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a cloudy, pale, yellowish color, with a somewhat thick foam head.

Aroma: Light floral and citrus hops, orange and pineapple. A subtle but notable sweetness

Taste: Tangy citrus up front, followed by an easy bite of bitterness. And ever so slight breadiness in the back. Not a a total clean finish, but doesn't linger too long either. Balanced but not very complex.

Overall: This beer wasn't what I expected. It's a bit on the light side, but the flavors and aroma, although light, are still pleasant. The lightness reminds me of a traditional pale ale, but contributes to the drinkability factor. There's not a whole lot here, but what IS here is pretty decent. Could see myself drinking these at a party.

Look..typical hazy IPA look . A light yellow pilsner color
Smell...such a light hint of citrus hop.not unpleasant just nonexistent. Not offensive
Taste...an almost peach overtone with a nice bitter hop apricot dryness. a big full taste at 6 percent and very flavorful.
Feel...A very present juice base with medium to low carbonation. still a nice quality to the beer that reflects complexity
Overall...I must like these guys. I do like the piney resin beers they make, real lip smackers. My only wish is that this beer could be a little fresher and may get some better marks. Still a beer I definitely like!!!

1 Pint 3.2 Fl. Oz. can
Served in a stemless wine glass

This beer pours an orangish tint of yellow and is turbid. It is topped with an inch of beige head that leaves nice lacing.

The smell is sweet with light citrus.

Kinda sweet upfront. Citrus on the back end

Medium bodied with an effervescent mouthfeel

Solid gas station beer

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: Hazy (check), golden blonde, full finger of tight sticky white foam.

Aroma: Grapefruit skin, malty base, baby powder? A slight chalky note.

Taste: Very balance, no hop bitterness, fairly light on hop flavors, mild lemon, tea, grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Frothy texture, high carbonation, medium low body, grit, slight oil in the finish.

Overall: A refreshing summer beer, easy drinking, pretty mild, most of what a Hazy IPA is supposed to be about. Not a ton of flavor, somewhere in the APA range in my book, almost a lawn mower. While it is well made, not super exciting.

L-relatively translucent, out of step with style. Moderate head
S-nothing notable in aroma
T-disappointing. Seems to fall in between the lagunitas typical hops and the more flavorful/adventurous profile expected for the style
F-relatively high carbonation notable
O-definitely an acceptable and drinkable beer, just not that interesting and not a particularly good delivery on a “hazy” title
