Purchased in a six-pack from my local grocery store- poured from a cold bottle into a room-temperature weizen glass.
A: Poured a massive three fingers of beige head from the bottle; takes a few minutes to recede...lacing is extensive and elaborate. The brew itself is a glassy, translucent amber, with lazy carbonation bubbles visible. Between the ridiculous head and the lack of opacity in the appearance, I'm a bit concerned...
S: Okay, well now we're on to something! I'm getting floral, pine and orange/grapefruit citrus notes all at once. An absolutely killer hop sensation on the nostrils. Like a hop party!
T: It tastes like a florist shop and a grapefruit tree had a baby! A glorious, refreshing flavor with just a hint of oaty malt back end. Carbonation is extremely mild, allowing all the hop intensity (and subtleties) come through unhindered.
M: Although light in carbonation, this is very oily, 'wet' beer on the tongue. I'm usually not a fan of this (especially in IPAs), but it works well here for some reason...maybe because the lingering aftertastes are quite good!
O: I could see myself buying another sixer of Lagunitas IPA down the road...which is the highest compliment I can pay any beer. A very sophisticated, tastefully executed take on the IPA blueprint.

this is a weird IPA, it smells kinda soapy,and also at first reminded me of ovaltine. I guess thats some kind malt. Its even a little reminiscent of a swartz beer with its sweet malty smell. basically no hops for the nose.
syrupy taste like a swartz beer, with a little bit of hops finish. bees wax.
sticky mouth feel but still light. carbonation in minimal.
overall Not a huge fan of this. First beer I've had from lagunitas that I wouldn't recomend or buy again.
