Lagunitas Brewing Company 12th of Never American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV | 45 IBU (US$2.29 at KTA Super Stores, 568 ml, packaged on 23-Dec-2018, acquired 20-Apr-2019, reviewed 20-Apr-2019)

Appearance: chill hazed straw with one fat finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin persistent cap, moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus zest, resiny pine, clean cereal grains, light tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, short duration medium bitter finish. (4/5)

Nice light APA. I might be letting the whole “enjoying a warm afternoon in Hawaii” experience bleed over slightly into the tasting experience, but all in all this is a solid little APA that approaches Session territory, while retaining lots of clean flavour. Good stuff. (16/20)
