Very interesting IPA, really well balanced but there is an aftertaste in it that I can't quite pinpoint. perhaps peanut-y resin. High ABV on this beer, but its masked very well. Also getting some smooth caramel hops on the finish which pair really well with the grainy-nuttiness in this also intensely hopped IPA

A - pours a clear light amber with a white head. Nice lace. Bubbly.

S - soft aroma for the style. Grapefruit, soft pine and faint diesel.

T - similar to the aroma. Sweet grapefruit with a soft piney finish. Slightly bready.

M - medium-full body. Oily. Low-medium bitterness with a short sustain.

O - conservative for the style. Malty sweet and weak on the hops. Decent flavor, but a little too sweet for me.

12oz bottle with no date. On sale at Blue Max

Looks like a standard IPA. Smell is on point; skunky pine, lemon, musk. Taste is sweeter and more malty than expected. It strikes a good balance with the honey-like malt and the citrus/pine of the hops. Still, It's almost too buttery and/or sweet.

Another solid hoppy Lagunitas brew. Hop Stoopid's better, tho.
