Brewer: Lagunitas Brewing

Style: India Pale Ale

This session beer from the hops-heavy Lagunitas Brewing brings a big, bright citrus flavor upfront that’s on-par with a fresh, much stronger India Pale Ale. The Petaluma, California brewers behind the 4.65-percent ABV DayTime wanted a full-flavored brew that leaves you with your senses, and DayTime delivers just that.

“I’m not sure I can keep saying ‘session IPA’ about this new category of beers, but I do love the pronounced hop flavor and aroma qualities being crammed into beers under five-percent ABV,” Magnolia’s McLean says. “DayTime has become a local favorite for me.”
