3.88/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint glass.

A - Golden in color with great clarity. Being rocky head from an intense pour is holding a solid two fingers. Plenty of lacing left on the glass.

S - Bright citrus orange peel. Background of pine and leafy green hops. Some biscuity malts are subtle.

T - Malt holds on tight in the initial taste before hops show their face. The hops give a unique melon-like flavor and some traditional citrus tones. Bitterness is right on for the style as to not be overbearing. Pretty dry finish with a moderately lasting hop flavor.

M - Just short of dry, medium to medium-light body, moderate carbonation.

O - Great beer, unique in many senses from color to flavor yet traditional in smell and feel. I thought it was a little light on body and a touch too sweet but well within style. All in all an offering that I would recommend and purchase again.

Poured from a brown bottle into a pint glass.

Aroma was piney hops. Not strong, but pleasant.

An inch think, off white head was atop a gold, maybe light copper body. Very clear. Big bubbles in the head and a few bubbles visible rising from the bottom of the glass. As I drank the beer some lacing was visible on the glass.

Taste was assertive piney hops. Not overpowering but definitely a strong hop flavor. I tried to find a malt character but just kept coming back to the hops. That said, though, it's not just pure hop juice. This is a very enjoyable IPA. Easy to drink and enjoy.

I've had the pleasure of visiting the Lagunitas brewery and tap room in Petaluma, CA on several occasions and I do enjoy their beers anywhere I can get them. If you're looking for a quality IPA this will not disappoint.

Poured this from a bottle into a pint glass. Also had it on tap several times. Pours a nice copper/caramel color with an ok frothy white head. Head has been different on some pours.

Taste: I really don't know what it is about this beer but I love to drink it. There is no special flavor that stands out, maybe it is how balanced I find it? Bottom line, I love this beer and rate it higher than most people. I have this Lagunitas a lot and will continue to.

Bottled march 18, 2014

bright yellow-orange, clear

Grassy and earthy in the nose along some dank. A bit of citrus. Cat piss.

Taste up front grassy and floral hops. A bit tangy and a good malt balance

medium carbonation, nice subtle bitter aftertaste. Dry and light.

Not exploding with flavors but a nice crisp standard IPA.
