Bottle into Samuel Adams glass.
The pour yielded a very light bodied bronze with moderately active carbonation and a moderate amount of lacing. Nice. The unique characteristic of this beer is the light honey-flavored backing that comes along with the hops that gives a sweet taste before the bitter hops come in. The carbonation is a bit on the heavy side which adds to the texture of the bitterness, but slows down the drinkability.
As a side note, when I bought this the gentleman that owns the store told me that he thought Lagunitas was right there with Bell's in terms of quality brews. I will have to try more to decide this for myself. However, IPA vs. IPA, this is a good beer but doesn't even come close to Two Hearted.
