22oz bottle into a stemless wine glass

Pours a nice clear copper color, hues of orange and light amber, a light soapy head appears, decent retention no lacing. The aroma is nice and citrusy with a great floral presence, very bright and vibrant just a touch of alcohol. The flavors are very nice, bright floral and zesty citrus, tangy juicy tropical fruits with a bit of bitter earthy pine, but this is a very bright IPA, astringent alcohol and some sweet malt finish this off very nicely. Body is good, medium carbonation, a touch soapy but it has a great dry finish.

Verdict: A really good IPA and for the value, there is nothing better (except Pliny on the west coast). This really hits the spot for any hop head and can hold it's own against many of the best IPAs out there.

22 oz Bottle poured into a Belgian chalice

A: Orange, almost resembling cream soda. Really active carbonation and a medium white head.

S: Really strong grapefruit smell. Some malt and hop, but the grapefruit is the overpowering smell.

T: This is a really refreshing beer. Just like the smell the first thing I get is a ridiculously strong grapefruit flavor, with a bitter hop/grapefruit aftertaste.

M: Really carbonated, very light and refreshing. This would be a perfect hot day at the pool beer.

O: It's a solid beer, I like the (somewhat weird?) grapefruit flavors, very drinkable, but I don't think it stacks up well to the rest of Lagunitas' offerings.
