I continue to work my way through the Lagunitas roster, holding off on this one for a while and instead trying some of their bigger IPA offerings. Lately this beer is showing up across the province and tonight I finally had the bomber in my fridge, still pretty fresh after a few weeks. Color is darkish yellow falling just shy of orange, with a decent amount of whitish foam. Lagunitas has such a classic and unique character, allegedly due to inordinately warm fermentation temperatures, and this beer certainly captures that aspect in spades. Aroma is sweet grapefruit, lime, and tangerine citrus, very fruity and sweet with little discernible malt. You can taste the malt more clearly than you can smell it, although even here you have to concentrate. This is a hops delivery vehicle but said flavors are not uber-bitter and overpowering at all. The total package is fairly light, sweet, and fruity. Head was fairly impressive but carbonation on the low end, with a thinnish body and a subtle sweet malt background, maybe a hint of molasses and biscuit. Dangerously drinkable. Flavor starts with tons of mellow citrus pith, fresh orange juice and subdued but clearly detectable pine. There is then a bloom of pineapple and mango tropical fruit flavors along with fresh leafy green chlorophyll and some tree sap and resin in the wet finish. More of a showcase for hop flavors rather than the expected bitterness and it works on this level. Light, unassuming IPA but features some fresh flavors and a nice "starter" IPA for drinking in quantity.
