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.

Big lemon sherbert aroma
Some pine flavour
Nice easy drinking beer with a hoppy edge

S: tropical fruit and citrus supported by rich biscuit. Hop and fruit aromas are medium and malt aromas are medium to medium low.

L: bright gold with a slight haze under a 1" cream colored foam collar with moderate retention. Streams of bubbles rapidly rise form the bottom.

T: creamy slightly sweet palate with citrus and light malts,and traces of tropical fruit. Hoppy fruit flavors are medium, malt flavors are medium low and hop bitterness is medium. It dries on the finish with a little mineral character.

F: The body is medium light and the carbonation is medium high.

O: This is a light, full flavored, very refreshing and very session-able beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a golden yellow color with a 1" head that slowly falls.

Smell: light citrus tones rise from the glass.

Taste: caramel, lemon zest, orange, a hint of pine, and a moderate bitterness level.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer, Crisp throughout. Short lasting aftertaste with this beer,

Overall: a decent IPA but overall not a big fan of the lower ABV IPAs as they lack some depth in flavor.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear goldenstraw color with a perky little head; nice stickage and a pretty good coat of lace

Smell: Grassy and somewhat sulfur-filled

Taste: Crisp and dry, with a growing grassy aspect; a hint of lemon, through the middle, with a dry finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; slightly aqueous

Overall: I like a good session IPA but this one tastes rather Germanic, more like a session pils; maybe it's old but without a bottle date, who can tell?

It pours a light yellow with plenty of carbonation. The smell is of citrus(a lemon and orange combined). The taste is the same but with a sweetness to it. The body is thin with just a bit of bite to it. Overall one really enjoyable drink.

This is a great beer but I don't understand why this is supposedly an IPA, hmm. Anyways, this is an incredible session ale. Great maltiness and very very light hops and bitterness. I could easily toss back a few of these and be happy.

My favorite session beer. Lots of flavor, stuck between a super clean IPA and a smooth, but bitter pilsner. Very refreshing. Pine flavor with a dry finish, not very malty. Very very slight hints of citrus (not fruity) with a nice yellow color and a medium white head. Gotta say, Lagunitas nailed this session. Hard to find in Richmond, VA though. Total Wine and grocers don't seem to carry it. Found a convenience store with a unusually good craft beer selection that stocks it regularly (next to Snead's Nursery on Huguenot Road), if you're going by local reviews.

Poured from a 12oz bottle,into a Funky Buddha snifter.

Thin,soapy,white head,dissolves fast,leaving a sticky ring around the glass,with some patching in the center.Light gold in color,with nice clarity.Light carbonation.

On the nose I get mostly bright citrus notes,backed by some sweet malts,and honey.The aroma is definitely a sweet one.

The palate is pretty bland in my opinion.Bitter hops,sweet malts,maybe a little hint of tropical fruits...Not much else,and not enough to move the needle.In my opinion.Not bad tasting,just not anything special.

The body is thin,with a dry finish.

This is an okay beer,doesn't really stand out in any way,and not something I will buy in the future.But worth a try at least.
