Poured into a tulip glass; thanks, Corgidad!

A: An opaque golden with a white one-finger head that dissipates to medium bubbles. Thick lacing.

S: Piney hops, grapefruit, grassy.

T: Caramel and brown sugar meets a lightly bitter and juicy brew that's smooth as hell. Very frothy. Finishes with some alcohol heat.

M: Medium with heavy carbonation. That's what sells it.

O: A nice surprise from Lagunitas. I've enjoyed all their offerings so far. A great IPA. Juicy and smooth. Recommended.
