Had on tap at Lagunitas tap room in Petaluma

Balance of hops and malt tones on this easy to drink session beer. I paired this along with Night Time and both were great beers while sitting on the picnic tables and listening to some live music.
Not overly hoppy but enough to keep IPA lovers happy

-light, crisp, effervescent

a very good session ale. very light malt presence, but enough hops to keep the average hop head at least mostly satisfied. easy drinking, and widely available. very good indeed.

Pours golden, hazy with a very nice white foam head. Smell is hoppy but balanced with the malts. Taste is very nice, hoppy, malty, very well balanced and bitterness is very friendly, no astringency. Very nice session IPA I would drink it regularly.

Light gold color and nearly clear. Moderate head that leaves plenty of spots for lace.

Great combination of pale malt and floral hop. Attractive and balanced, very much what I expect a good IPA to be me as a smell.

The taste is similar to the smell in that it has a solid malt base with an appropriate bittering hop flavor. The only (minor) complaint is that the hop is biting and not softer. That said, it is subtler than 90% of the IPAs out there. The taste comes down to being refreshing and easy to drink. The body is appropriate as is the carbonation. The aftertaste is bitter (as in white pepper) but not extreme. This lasts a long time but subtly.

Look- A light, golden hue. Clear and without imperfections.

Smell- I get a light hop aroma, but not much else.

Taste- Light, with a nice hop backing.

Feel- Smooth, but doesn't leave much.

Overall, a tasty beer that probably is good for day time drinking.

Poured into a pint glass from a bottle. High foamy head over pale, clear golden ale. Head settled quickly (and nearly disappeared) and released citrus tinged nutty aroma with some noticeable new world hops undertone. Even flavor with fresh aftertaste. Taste is smooth with a nice balance of tangy and and a touch of sweet with a fresh citrusy, aftertaste. The mouth feel is light and slightly flat with hint of cream. Overall this is a well balanced IPA.

12 ounce bottle purchased individually from Whole Foods, chilled to about 50 degrees and served in a Spieglau stemmed Pilsner glass. My first experience with this beer, which I thought overly bitter. Did not enjoy this one at all and would not buy again.
