Pours a wonderful gold color with a frothy head. It adheres perfectly to the side of the glass as it goes down. Aroma of caramel, apricot, and dried fruit. As I drink a mouthful, I can taste huge pineapple and grapefruit flavors. The forefront of the flavor so to speak, is sweet and citrus-y, while it has a dry finish of bitter piney hops. The overall mouthfeel is thick and creamy however. I expected a boozy taste but there was none. Fresh & Tasty!

1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Guinness goblet in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Paired with pizza. If I remember right, I bought this at Wally's Wine in Westwood. Expectations are high; even though I don't usually like this style, I usually like this brewery's beer.

A: Pours a two finger head of slight cream, pretty decent thickness, and good retention - especially considering the relatively high ABV. Colour is a transparent copper gold.

Sm: Quite hoppy, as expected. Maybe some cream, but certainly dominating hops. a bit musty, making me suspicious it might be hopped without regard for balance. Aroma is moderately strong.

T: Quite hoppy, but complex and balanced in its hoppiness. While the hop content is certainly high, the beer maintains its flavour profile throughout, giving it a consistent pleasant taste that doesn't go bad by the finish like many IPAs. Very tasty indeed. I dig the build and the well-maintained balance.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but with some mustiness and a touch too much thickness. Overall, it does complement the flavour quite nicely.

Dr: Lagunitas has impressed me. This is one of proportionately few IPAs that I actually like and would have again. I'd fancy giving her a spin on draught.
