Beautiful straw color, nice white head that dissipates rather slowly, off gassing the pleasant aroma of hops. That classic west coast hoppy aroma of pine and grapefruit. A delightfully sweet and enticing scent. Mellow bitterness on the tongue, more of the grapefruit and a bit of grassy sweetness. Feels like it should, very light, very quick to dissipate, bit of excess bitterness that lingers at the back of the tongue. Not at all a bad example of the session IPA, highly drinkable for the hop lover and also a great palette cleanser between heavier tastings. A Lagunitas classic for sure.

Amber hazy color with a thick head with short retention.
Nice aroma with notes of pine, mango, passion fruit, lots of guava, bread, lemon and pineapple core.
Flavor with notes of pine, grapefruit, passion fruit, lots of lemon, some spices and resin. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Pleasant hoppy Session IPA with an interesting tropical nose and a clean and traditional recipe focusing in pine and grapefruit notes.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking mostly clear yellow color with a light dose of small carbonation to be seen rising to fill a one finger white semi - foamy head that concaves nicely. The smell had a nice blended dose of sweet citrus to bright bitter pine with a little bit of orange as it warmed. The taste copied the smell just right rolling over my tongue in a sweet sticky way. There was a nice sweet sticky citrus aftertaste that lead into a sweet refreshing finish. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and came across pretty sessionable. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it had enough prickliness but held back just enough to make a great session. Overall, well how about that. Pretty nice AIPA that I could go to again easily.

Pours a clear yellow with a minimal white head that dissipates very quickly but leaves lacing on my glass after every sip. The aroma is faintly lemons and oranges on white toast. The flavor is citrus and a touch of mango. Crisp and easy to drink. I'll definitely buy this again.

From notes taken 03/20/17:

Bright golden yellow, mostly clear but with “inky” hazy swirls. Lighter cream-white head of foam, with decent retention and lacing. Oranges, lemon rinds, resin, grass aromas. Malt and hops combine for an overall fairly tart flavor, but there’s a good balance toward grains as well as light caramel on the malt side, and grass, rind, and black pepper on the hop side. Finish is surprisingly dank for how light this is in all other regards. Medium-bodied, very fine, sparse, and gentle carbonation, just sloshy enough to not be flat.
