A- A really pretty IPA. Pours a darker orange than others I have see, with a lot of clear carbonation to round out the body. About 2 fingers of very frothy clean white head are there and dissipate after about an average stay.

S-A muted pine was the note that grabbed me most here. There is a bit of citrus but I got more of the rind than an actual fruit. The hops are here, but something about them sticks out in a negative way. Almost a stale feel.

M-Crisp and refreshing, good on a hot day due to its drinkability, but nothing to Earth shattering.

T-I was pretty underwhelmed by the IPA. Lagunitas appeared to be a middle gorund for hop heads and fruitier IPA lovers, but to me the flavors simply did not mix the way I would have hoped. The fruits are the first flavors on the palate, but instead of crisp citrus, the orange and lemon apparent were over bearing and did not taste fresh. The hops had the same affect on me as the second half of the palate gets an undesirable hop flavor that again feels like the beer had been sitting in a hot room for months (I purchased the beer last week from a very reputable beer exchange).

O-I have been relatively underwhelmed by a number of lagunitas flavors, and this was no different.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

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.
