Lagunitas is one of the fastest-growing craft breweries in the United States. Founded in 1993 by Tony Magee, the brewery is known for iconoclastic interpretations of traditional beer styles, and irreverent descriptive text and stories on its packaging.
Born Again Yesterday is part of the 2017 One Hitter Series. A series of rare, experimental and one-off brews produced in small batches released through the year.
Pour: A cloudy golden color with lots of carbonation swirling around.
Head: Very thin and airy head forms but hangs around for a while.
Nose: Lots of pine with hints of grapefruit behind it.
Palate: Light and juicy making it very easy to drink. Loads of hops give it a nice acidity but not as much fruit as I was expecting. Finish is clean and doesn’t leave much behind.
Overall: This was an interesting take a on a Pale ale, using “wet hops” gave it a nice juicy IPA feel while still having some remains of a Pale ale. This one is a limited release so it may not be the easiest to find but if you come across some this is definitely one to splurge on.
