This is a Lagunitas beer. They make good beer people. They make damn good beer at a reasonable price people! This is no exception.

Appearance: Nice head retention, but not a huge amount either. Sticks around a bit. Lighter in color for an IPA. This is a nice clear almost lager in appearance brew.

Aroma: Sweet malts, nice floral hops, very balanced. Almost a perfect example of an IPA for the masses.Even though that is not really what it is. Its close enough to guide someone on into home plate, that is the IPA world. That is in no way downgrading this beer.

Taste: Well made beer. Nice and hoppy but not to the point your mouth is turning inside out. Balanced with sweetness from the malt base. This is a perfect example of this style of beer. How a beer can be made this well, taste this good, be as readily available and at the price is really shocking. The grocery stores recently alternated sales on Lagunitas and this one was like $7.99 for a six pack. Nobody can touch that!

Overall: Try it for yourself and see. There are beers that stand out more. This one has its own character but would be one I could point to someone trying to get into the style but not sure if they really like it or not. This is a beer I would also drink as a fan of IPA's. I have drank a lot of intense beers, this isn't one of them. Its just well made and tasty.

More hoppy than I thought I'd like. Becoming a favorite for those hotter evenings while kicking back in the back yard.
