4.48/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a medium straw color with fantastic clarity. I'd say it looks like a pilsner, but not many pilsners I've seen featured the kind of frothy, thick head this one does. The two finger eggshell colored head retains acceptably.

S: This has the smell I'm accustomed to from Lagunitas IPAs, with a combination of herbal 'green-ness' and grapefruit peel. Just a faint hint of sweetness abounds, as well.

T: The malts here are very neutral and crackery, and are seemingly only there to provide a canvas for the hops to shine. Speaking of, the hops start out as being slightly piny and herbal, before gradually transitioning to a citrusy finish. This has a combination of lightness and balance, which equals massive drinkability.

M: Clean, dry, and refreshing. There are some accumulating hop oils after a while, but hardly enough to ruin drinkability. It's not 'watery' per se, but it goes down like hop-flavored water.

O: I'm not normally this much above the rAvg on one of my reviews, and even less normally willing to give out 5's, but this has everything I look for in an IPA. It's light, crisp, juicy, somewhat inexpensive, and even slightly complex. Put simply, I could buy this stuff by the case and never get tired of it.
