4.5/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

For some reason, I have this instinct to avoid Lagunitas, but looking back, most of the beers I've tried from them, I remember liking. In a minor moment of epiphany, I grabbed this single at a nearby organic market, from their refrigerated section.

In the glass, this beer is a deep hue of orange. The head dissipates quickly to a rim around the glass, with a small amount of lace. On the nose I get green hops, strong and inviting citrus -- grapefruit and tangerine. On the nineteenth sniff, the aroma is still coming at me, maybe with some lychee now. On the tongue, this beer starts crisp and bitter, big juicy grapefruit hops with a metallic edge. The grapefruit rind really comes through in the middle and it lingers with the hoppy dry finish. Whoa. The malt is in there but mostly in the shadow of the hop flavor which is really intense. I get a little peek of malt near the end. Wow, this is just a gorgeous beer with tons of grapefruit rind.

Overall: I think this beer is a super duper APA. Perhaps a bit bitter for newbies (overhoppy), but if you can take SNPA, this is great stuff.
