Hazy pale yellow brew, topped by a nice snow white head. Good retention.

Nose features bright and vegetal hops, hay, wheat, and lemongrass. Light pepper.

Thicker and sweeter on the palate; nicely balanced. Lemon, honey, cracker, bright green herbs, white pepper, milky wheat.

Smooth and creamy body.

Easy drink beer. Hazy straw color with pillowy head and soapy lacing. Smell of grass and lemon, taste of grassy malt with a little citrus in there. Decent beer.

Was part of a mixed 12 pack of LH beers. Pours a hazy, light yellow with a quickly fading head. Aroma is subtle, grainy citrus. Mouthfeel is soft, low carbonation. Flavor is pillow soft citrus with a pleasant hoppiness, makes you want to drink some more. Much better than I expected it would be, very enjoyable and satisfying beer.

On tap at Barrel Republic and Angelica was labelled as a "staff favorite." I can see why... even though I only had a 3 ounce sampling. Angelica was refreshing and paired well with my lunch salad. I thought the hops were not extreme (like some reviewers.) Because she was food-friendly, Angelica could also be classified as a saison... except that the softness in the mouth is more like a wit. Whatever. Worth a try.

My first from Lord Hobo, I went on their website. They focus on perhaps ten beers (smart) and seem to be having fun (also smart) and succeeding at both (really smart.) I will look for more.

Handsome hazy slosh in the tulip. Sensationally aromatic with tangerine and fermenting pineapple. Tangy and rather acidic. There's something like rye flavor, spicy and grainy. Modest bitter lime peel aftertaste.

Orange flavor with a sweet malty undertone. Whatever this is, it's perfectly delicious. Overall it's light yet flavorful, like a a Pale Ale but with a welcome grainy tang. From the 12 oz can purchased at Barons Market in San Diego.

Hazy and refreshing. Similar to Hobo Life, with maybe a little more sweaty socks hop finish. Very interesting.

Bought cans from the sampler pack. Beer pours with a somewhat bright yellow-orange appearance and a large head. Really nice aromas of some wheat straw but some citrus hops. Taste follows that nose with a mostly bitter sweet wheat flavoring. Great carbonation and slightly refreshing. Overall, really good mouthfeel and aromas.

From a 4 month old 12 oz can -

Look: pours a deep golden hazy consistent color with a 1" frothy white head. some lacing was observed.
Smell: strong tropical notes of mango, papaya and passion fruit. overwhelms any aromas from the malt.
Taste: light malt sweetness and acidity from the tropical fruit flavors that abound. the bitterness is present and balances beautifully although it makes itself felt closer to the finish.
Feel: Medium light body, smooth creamy texture and moderate carbonation. astringency is pronounced on the palate.
Overall: the finish is long and smooth. the significant bitterness lingers for a while. although not marketed as such, this could just be a NE style Wheat IPA as the hop presence is significant and can satisfy any hop head. Although package was canned 4 moths ago, this beer is holding up beautifully. I really like this beer and could drink it all night!
