4.14/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a big bottle (1 pt, 6 fluid oz) into a pint glass. Didn't touch it until it sat at room temperature for a little bit . Tremendous beer!

Appearance - Translucent, orange-color, beautiful; very nice 3-finger head (at least) after pour. Head sustained itself for quite some time with nice lacing around the glass throughout. Good looking beer...

Smell - Orange, grapefruit; generally fruity-smell; tangerine-like; I can smell the hops.

Taste - Tremendous; a hops mouth-assault initially which calms down after a few sips or so. Perfectly balanced hops and fruit taste.

Mouthfeel - Very manageable considering this beer is 102 International Bitterness Units (IBUs). Either I am getting more and more comfortable with hoppy beers or this hop-stoopid beer is hoppy yet smooth! Bitter and piney but not too overwhelming.

Overall - Incredible beer. I've been reading about Lagunitas beers for some time now and I can now confirm that this brewing company is the real deal. I will seek this beer out again. Not too hoppy (I don't really consider myself a hop-head) but an impressive blend of hoppiness with refreshing fruit taste. Great beer!

Great color and decent head. Very enjoyable beer overall. I can't quite put my finger on what it"s missing but there is something small holding it back from being near the top for me. It's definitely a beer I will recommend and buy in the future though.

Great beer. Great taste. Goes down as one of the tops... for now.
This wasn't on my "to-drink" list, but I made an exception. I'm glad I did.

A- Looks great, but I'll admit, I drank it right out of the bottle.
S-scent was of a perfect for a solid drinkable beer. Not over powering to the point that you felt like you had to brace yourself for a kick in the mouth, but not weak.
T- taste, my favorite part. It was good, very good. Easy and smooth. A great hop taste and even flavor.

O- this is a good solid beer. You should definitely check it out.

Purchased this while doing my weekend a month at the base I was on. They had a decent selection of beer, and I wound up going with this. I was very pleased with my selection. It poured a nice amber color with a very thick foamy rich white head. What got me though was the smell. This smell is what every IPA should strive for. Floral, fruity sweet and good. I could sit there smelling it all night. The smell didn't translate completely into the taste, but it was still very good. I'd say the lower level of the top tier of IPAs. Felt very smooth in my mouth, very refreshing. I think this IPA is very underrated. I am glad I found it and would not hesitate to drink it again.
