Really enjoyed this...better than I expected. And I'm not a huge Lagunitas fan. As long as my local Walmart grocery store keeps selling it for under 8 bucks...I'll keep buying it.

First taste surprised me as I was expecting something a little hoppier, but it definitely grew as I continued drinking. A good, easy drinker. I liked it a lot.

Single bottle from a six pack poured into a Lagunitas mason jar style mug. Light apple juice yellow hue with a very frothy four fingers of head, like meringue and soap suds. Breaks down to leave broad rings of thick lacing. Huge bright fruity aroma yet somehow yields a rather dry impression despite the expectation of sweetness ... Lemon-lime, grapefruit, mandarin, pineapple, guava, kiwi ... Along with an almost earthy oolong tea-like note. Wonderful. Palate mirrors this, quite dry with a very light toasted note, subtly bready. Rich dry-hopped flavor, mixed citrus as described for the nose with black tea and faint herbal licorice. Very light ethereal mouthfeel. Quite fizzy but not caustically so and leaves a lingering citrus rind and herb aftertaste. Getting some vegetal green flavors late as well but nothing too intense. Main impression is citrus fruit and herbs with a musky tropical and tea undercurrent. One of my top session IPAs when I can find it here, which is almost never. Have to grab six or 12 across the border in Montana (thanks Gene, of Vintages Sellers fame, Great Falls, MT).
