12oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden amber with 1 finger of head

Smell: Citrus hops with some pepper and fresh baked bread

Taste: Bitter up front with a mix of citrus hops with some spice notes and well balanced with a caramel malt

Mouthfeel: Moderately carbonated with a clean finish relative to the amount of hop flavor

Overall: This was one of the last of Lagunitas' offerings for me to try. There is a good amount of hop flavor and is well balanced by the malt. This might one of the best balanced DIPAs for the amount of hop flavor.

Flowery, up-front flavor. Very complex. Grapefruit and apricot. Not terribly overpowering for an IPA. Excellent brew.
