Enjoyed all aspects of this brew. Nothing particularly stands out with this one, just an overall good beer. The beer stacks up great against others but compared to Lagunitas' flagship IPA it falls a bit short. Seldom do all beers from the same brewery score high, but Lagunitas doesn't brew any bad beer; all are above average.

Got this and Sucks. Like this better. Yeah, I said it.
A- gave it a 4.25 cuz the head retention and color is awesome. Little floaty goodies in there too, but its still clear. Just a great looking brew.
S- Balance. Hops bite you with the bitterness. Malt holds its own.
T- Balance. I love how malty it is. Bitterness is clear and crisp. You can taste the craftsmanship.
M- beautiful. Its dry, but just the right amount. Its almost got a chewy feeling to it, but its just got the perfect amount of body.
Over this beer is fantastic, Id get it over Sucks any day. Yeah, I said that again.

I put just a splash of this in my sauteed mushrooms with garlic and oregano, basil, black pepper and olive oil. It was awesome over steak.

Cheers!

a. Golden orangy color, clear. Good 2 inch head which lasts. Good lacing.

s. Only pine. Does not seem very complex in the nose.

t. Oh, there we go! A non existent taste up front (kind of like heady, but not as pronounced a length of time). A quick burst of citrus in the middle and better and pine in the finish. On the sweeter side.

m. Nice - smooth - plenty of carbonation - well balanced.

o. Another great beer by the outstanding brewer.
