3.88/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is crystal clear with a small white head. The retention is about average, but the lacing is quite nice. 4

S: Resinous hops really take it over with a beautiful citrus body to hold the beer together. My nose actually dipped into the beer I was smelling it so much, which can only be a good thing. 4

T: This is a really easy drinking IPA, which I believe is the point at under 5% ABV. The light flavor is really noted up front, but is quickly taken over by the citrus, but only a slight piney hoppiness. As a hop head, I do wish this had more of a hop bite, but other than at the very finish I don't think they play enough of a role. 3.5

MF: Very light mouthfeel with a carbonation level that is right where it should be. Nice, dry finish without much of an aftertaste. The drinkability is absurd. Here's an IPA that won't kill your palate, but still tastes like a good one. 5

O: Love what they did here. I really need to drink more Lagunitas IPAs, they're outstanding. 4

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Love the fact that this IPA has a low ABV. That way I can take them outside and have a few and not worry about them sneaking up on me after two or three. In my opinion, its the ultimate beer to take outdoors for a cookout or picnic. Its light and crisp with bold notes of citrus and pine like any solid IPA should have. I almost get a little taste of lemon and lime in the mix as well. Its refreshing and light, but wonderfully balanced to give you that IPA experience!
