reviewed from notes from 6/9/2011 tasting.
A- Beautiful amber color, crystal clear, creamy carbonation that fades rather quickly, but leaves some lacing.
S- Pine and grapefruit, and little else. Not as strong as previous bottles I have had, but still solid.
T- Amazing balance on this beer where every flavor is pleasant and inviting, but nothing really knocks me out. The grapefruit that lagunitas is known for is there in abundance. The alcohol is very subtle. Caution with this one.
M- Very crisp, refreshing, and pleasant. Love the way this one feels going down...that's what she said.
O- Since surly Abrasive isn't available local, this will be my go-to budget IIPA. Between my brother and I, we are keeping lagunitas in Missouri. I love this beer.

Julian dating on the 22oz bomber revealed to be from May 20th (so almost 2 months on this by the time I cracked it open and poured it into the tulip glass). Might have wanted it a bit fresher, but that is no news flash. 1 and 1/2 fingers of white head which dissipated quickly and left some nice lacing. Interesting tangerine hue in the light, very tempting. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, and bitterness (yes, bitterness... this IS a 102 IBU brew!). Pine notes on the front wave of the taste profile, along with a citrusy (almost lemony) mid-note, with a big bitter finish. Continual carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel, and a slightly oily presence on the back end. This had a nice balance for a big beer, and though I was v. happy... would have to try one that was super fresh to make this a go-to choice.
