Brew Review: Lagunitas Day Time
Location: Petaluma, CA
Type: A Fractional IPA
Price: $9.99/six pack
Aroma: Skunky hops and small citrus hints.
Appearance: Completely clear, small amount of bubbles rising to the top, light golden color.
Body & Texture: Very light bodied, lager like. Carbonation bubbles pop in your mouth! Very smooth.
Aftertaste: Clean, crisp, light hops.
I'm in love! Fo Real. This is such a great summer beer! Really, it's the ultimate summer beer. Well, it's the ultimate summer beer, if you're an IPA lover. I love the aroma, it's so potent, but when you take a sip, it's so light. I really appreciate Lagunitas brewing this "fractional" IPA. If you're not a hop head, this is the perfect IPA to get into IPA's. It's super light, and reminds me of a lager in body, but doesn't skimp out on the aroma and flavor. My only complaint is that it's limited release! At least I'll have something to look forward to next summer. Definitely pick yourself up a six pack ASAP.
