Glad I didn't review this beer after the first time I had it almost a year ago. At that time, my opinion of it would've gone something like this: "overrated and underhopped" - again, glad I didn't review it at that time. NOW: Trying it again for the first time, this beer is amazing. It's everything I like in an IPA and more. Followed an Anchor Old Foghorn Barleywine with this magnificent IPA and it was like Heaven. (And I'd had a Hop Stoopid before the barleywine, so my palate was already exposed to a super load of hops for the eve). It's citrusy, piney, and oh so quaffable. A beautiful beer to look at and the aroma does not differentiate from the taste. Mouthfeel is awesome and the drinkability level is oh so high. My only thought on the reason the first sample underwhelmed is that it was old. The problem with Lagunitas' products is that there's no best by date anywhere (that I can find). So one never knows what one is getting: fresh or old . . . or should I say great or not-so-great? Happy to see this brewery arrive in town after a looong wait for Hop Stoopid and the rest of its excellent brews. STATUS: BREWERY REPUTATION VINDICATED!
