Gold in color, carmel and floral aroma hops on scent. Smooth carmel malt tones with bittering hops to back up. Finishes nicely. Well balanced brew

Beautiful dark golden yellow color. Kicked up a good two-finger fluffy off-white head that stuck around a good five minutes - great lacing till the end. The nose was typical Lagunitas, very citrusy and piney with just a hint of wheat bread in the background. The taste was nearly identical to the nose, with the pine a bit forward over the citrus. The mouthfeel was fairly thick and creamy - just about perfect. Just an outstanding beer in my opinion - I grab this one at the store very often, and will continue to in the future.

Absolutely amazing smell - very tropical, fruity and fresh. It is very smooth and pretty light on the feel. I really enjoyed this beer and could have several of them and be happy.

Along with celebration, one of my two gateway craft beers. Does not taste the way I recall. A hint of hop stoopid in the nose but not the taste. Went down real smooth.. Just not a ton of taste. 4/5.
