got four from my boss Bc he didn't like them. Made me somewhat wary.

A - very pale yellow body. A little cloudy. Thin white head.

N - grassy. Light hop notes.

T - citrusy hops. Grapefruit / lemon.

M - fine.

O - very drinkable. The Ipa label gives expectations that this didn't quite meet, but it is a rather pleasant drink. Nothing special but good.

General: Found a 6 pack of this down in San Diego and brought it home. Poured this into a bottle logic lab glass for the tasting.

Appearance: This is a light gold, crystal clear with a light fluffy white head. The head doesn't lace too much and it diminishes fairly quickly.

Aroma: this is a nice light hoppy grassy aroma with some mild hints of citrus. This is a classic style IPA aroma, I love it.

Mouthfeel: For a traditional IPA this is a little thin but they are marketing this as a "fractional" IPA in that it's not a big alcohol beer. This seems about right for this style. The carbonation is moderate.

Taste: Great light bitterness with a slight hit of citrus. The hops come through first and foremost just like an IPA should. There really isn't any malt supporting this hop but because it's so moderate, it just works.

Overall: This is awesome, a nice mild IPA that you can drink 4-5 of at a bar-b-q and not be hammered. This will be one of my go-to IPAs once I can find it locally!

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: It looks like yellow Gatorade. There is no head with only a small cluster of bubbles. I also get no lacing. The beer is almost a neon yellow.

S: This smells really good, with lots of hop notes. It is very floral and balanced with pine notes. Quite excellent.

T: Quite good. I had to pick this up so that I could continue on my session IPA kick. A while ago, I had sampled it but I needed to give it a full try, especially given the fact that I had thought it tasted good. Well, this is a nice hoppy beer with a slightly watery body, but somehow it all seems to work together with the flavors here. Light citrus and floral, with only a bit of grass and meadows.

M: An excellent level of carbonation that tickles the tongue and is nice and prickly. The carbonation really helps with conveying the body here and covers up/masks some of the watery/thinness of it.

O: Another great beer from Lagunitas and one of the better session IPAs. I would say this is just below Stone's recent Go To IPA, but not by much.
