I might be biasing by living 45 minutes south of Petaluma and this is probably the beer I drink most.
But biases aside here we go.
-The 12 oz bottle poured a beautiful deep gold/ bright orange into my pint glass and is fairly cloudy. The head is subtle and small and as you tipple away the lace runs up the sides.
-The smell is nice and fruity, hints of citrus and even some malt and hops in the smell. When I envision the smell of a standard west coast IPA this is what I think of.
-Right away you can taste the aggressive use of hops, but then the malt balances it nicely and opens up the whole hop bouquet. It is very floral, very citrus like and leaves a strong and solidly bitter after taste all the way down.
-The mouth feel is pretty standard, nice and smooth, pretty carbonated.
Overall I love this beer, it however is not as daring and bold as some of Lagunitas limited releases, and is a pretty standard IPA. Every one I've had is nice and homogenous, they do a good job of making sure the batches are consistent. Tastes even better on tap I recommend visiting them, wacky but fun brewery.

I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.
