Old Review
22 oz bomber thanks to that crazy Murchmacnasty. This is one of the Lagunitas brews that I haven't seen around the area, so it was nice to see this brew thrown into our trade. Thanks, buddy. Served up in my Dogfish Head Shaped Pint glass because that's the way its gonna be.

A: Pretty solid looking IPA. Pours a nice orange, that is very vibrant and bright. Held to the old light buld you get a more golden yellow color coming out. Body is pretty darned clear and clean with a nice a lazy carbonation movement in the glass. The head is white to off white, sitting at about a finger and a half. It doesn't last too long but that mostly because its all over the glass in some sticky ass lace. Not bad at all.

S: Smell is of some light citrus aromas initially. Then you get a very distinct grapefruit rind aroma, like it was freshly zested (?). Then you get a nice pale malt presence that is a touch sweet but nothing too nuts. This beer does have one of the most clean, grassy smells I have ever encountered. Very clean and earthy . . . and very nice.

T: I was expecting a bit of some crazy hops but I was pleasantly suprised that the hops are not in crazy excess. They are here, but they aren't wrecking your palate. Nice orange and light grapefruit making it happen. There is a very distinct tangerine flavor as well. The malt is lightly sweet with just a touch of caramel, just enough to cut this a bit. Then you get some of that clean and earthy goodness coming out. Might be a bit more in the realm of some clean pine rather than grass. All in all, very good.

M: Medium body but is on the lighter side of medium. Has a nice touch of wateriness to it, but this helps the beer a bit. Slight bit of bitterness left behind but nothing too wild. The beer has a really nice and light dryness that comes in at the finish. It really is one of the most subtle drying sensation I have experience. Alcohol is light and well masked, which is exactly what this beer needs. Aftertaste is just some really nice and clean earthy goodness.

D: This wasn't exactly what I was expecting but I am pleasantly suprised. Not a hop bomb at all, but it has a nice hop presence and complexity. Its enough to keep you drinking and interested. Its is a smooth and easy drinker which is perfect for summer. The best way to describe this beer (and I know I have beaten this to death in this review) is clean. Clean in the sense that it doesn't kill the palate, but also it just has a nice and clean flavor and aroma. Just smells and tastes clean. Very nice, get you some.

Sampled 1702, Tucson AZ; August 2009
This arrives from the tap with a half-finger thick, pale white colored head. The beer is almost clear and is a copper-gold color. The aroma has a nice fruity hop note to it that reminds me of tangerine, lychee and apricot all of which contribute to a smooth hop fruit character. No malt character is really noticeable.

There is a touch of sweetness to the flavor, but it has a drying effect overall. There is just enough malt sweetness here to carry the dominant hop notes. A biting clean bitterness is noticeable throughout and it lingers pretty well on the tongue. Also in the lingering finish is a menthol and pine flavored hop note. The fruity hop notes contribute notes of tangerine, grapefruit peel oil and lots of lychee. This has a nice light body to it, even lighter than one would expect in a beer of this strength; this is definitely quite quaffable. Some hot alcohol is sometimes noticeable in the finish and food seems to accentuate this to the point of being peppery. This is actually almost a bit too thin at times, but it is thoroughly serviceable and even pretty enjoyable over all.

Served In: Snifter
