In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Lagunitas Brewery. It is their Day Time Ale. This is a beer that I picked up a six-pack from the brewery while in Chicago. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this West Coast and Midwest craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into this session IPA.
This session IPA has a clear golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a floral to earthy notes. The taste profile has a light carbonation with hints of earth notes. The aftertaste has a dry crisp hop finish. It is all day IPA beer.
Here is a desecration from their website (www.lagunitas.com):
Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.
AVAILABILITY: SUPER LIMITED
Sold as: 6-packs & Kegs
Net contents: Ounces and ounces of Malt, Hops, Yeast and water.

Closing, I love this session IPA. I just feel it is pretty hard to find their beers in southeast Michigan. When I do, I feel they are overpriced. I hope with the new brewery in Chicago that could solve some issues. I love this IPA beer style because I can get the big hop from aroma and taste but yet I am able to drink it most of the day. Before this beer style, I had to switch to a pilsner or lager. It was not making my taste buds happy. I had to drink a few IPA’s and I have to move on to another beer. I love the hops and the malty backbone is just about right. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
