I had this on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Bowling Green, my fourth Lagunitas review. Lagunitas really nails the IPA/PA beer types. Great malt and hops flavors, strong citrus, maybe some pine. I loved the aroma, very strong, you can tell what's coming a mile away. The color is an orange-copper, very enticing. Give it a shot if you have a chance.

Taking the pale in Pale Ale rather far this had a near yellow like copper color and a weaker head than expected.

Light hop aroma and a substantial tea leaf nose this had aromas of lemon, pine, biscuit and bread.

The flavor seems spot on for the style as the balance of hops and malt is stellar. Slightly bitter at the finish this keeps a blend of tea leaf, barley, pine, floral hop cone, lemon and bready like flavors.

You just can't go wrong with Lagunitas when it comes to nailing a style.

clear orange, frothy 2 finger head.

Subtle orange and caramel malt in the nose. Nothing too strong. Nice for an APA.

Good balance of sweet sugary caramel and semi bitterness. Some mango and orange. A good toned down blend.

Moderate carb, moderate body, slicker than expected.

Good APA. Has that signature lagunitas backbone with all the typical hoppiness toned down a few notches. Hits the category well.
