Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a nice white head that lingers fairly well.
Lots of west coast hop resin in the nose, smells kinda centennially. Unlike the usual lagunitas, the malt profile actually smells a bit subdued...i am hopeful.
Wow. This is actually quite nice. A good hop profile, nice and crisp. The malt body balances well without getting in the hops way. You can tell this IPA has a little extra put on it, hops wise. The finish is very bitter, just like we like em. I would like just a tad more diversity in the hop profile, and a little more resin, but this one isnt exactly fresh, so that may be entirely my fault.
Mouthfeel is pretty much right where it oughta be, maybe just a tad thick. carbonation is good.
Drinkability is pretty solid, but you would have to be an exprienced hophead to drink this as a session beer, as the hop profile would be brashly bitter for your average yuppie 60 minute fan.
Overall a very nice IPA that i would be happy to revisit if it were brewed again. There are better ones out there for sure, but this one is nothing to be scoffed at. Enjoyable, to style, and doesn't get tiring. A nice IPA by lagunitas. I'm liking their hoppier stuff a little bit more as of late, I like how they have begun to lay of the malt a little bit. Good work.
