Pale ale with distinctive but not all that appealing taste. A little weak and watery

Ours out a slightly cloudy straw color. The head is white and foamy with good retention. Lots of sticky rings of lacing can be observed.

Tropical fruits and piney bitterness in the nose. You also get light sweet pineapple notes and an earth like quality.

Mostly just a light bitterness. Unsweetened pineapple, lemongrass, and just a hint of grains.

Mouthfeel is light and extremely drinkable. Perfect hot weather beer.

Tastes alot like apple juice. Thin body and very little malt presence at all. Judging by the reviews this is almost certainly a personal taste thing for me but I think I'd prefer almost anything over this.

355 ml bottle, from Coop Extra, Sauda. ABV is 4.6%. Clear pale golden colour, moderate white head. Nice aroma of fruity hops (citrus, tropical fruits). Light bodied. Medium dry flavour with piney and grapefruity hops.

Light yellow in color with very good clarity. Poured with a short, soapy, bright white foam with medium low retention. Medium, fresh citrus and orange peel aromas with light malt aromas beneath. Medium light bodied with aggressive, but soft, carbonation. Citrus hop flavors, orange and lemon peel up front with light malt flavors. Medium, citrussy bitterness through the middle followed by bitter over ripe lemon flavors that clings to the roof of your mouth. Finished semi-dryly as the assertive carbonation pushed the flavors through. I'm done with session IPAs. If you want to have a drinking session, choose a style appropriately falls in the 5% or less category. Lagunitas has done a nice job with this, but IPAs are just so much better with the appropriate malt backbone.

Bottle. Straw coloured. Slight haze. Thin frothy head.
Gentle aroma of lemony hops and other mild phenols.
Decent astringency. Some resin.
Light to medium body.
A no nonsense and refreshing AIPA.

"A Fractional IPA (is that ridiculous or what...??)"
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a session IPA, if not quite as Founder's All Day, but this Day Time can also be backed down freely when the sun is out.
Very fresh in looks, aroma and taste. Citrusy, almost as if real bitter grapefruits have been used to make this. It is so citrusy and so refreshing, that its sessionable light body makes it feel just like a lemonade on a hot day and you find yourself backing it down in no time.
Lagunitas is a dog gone (sic!) brewery, punning the doggy and that it is darn good. Really good! Read the hidden notes on the label!
