Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Trader Joe’s in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $1.25
Purchased: Jan. 4, 2014
Consumed: Jan. 11, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel orange semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki white head. Tons of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention on the top all the way down.

First smells reminded me of a stronger pilsner. Overall got corn, lemon wheat grass, spruce hops, lemon rind and some pine. By the end was thinking of a stronger regular Blue Moon. Also light floral notes.

The taste was similar to the nose. Got lots of wheat, grass and corn, but also honey, sharp grapefruit rind and lots of bitterness. Not too solid.

Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish.

Just an average IPA. Nothing exceptional at all.
