Time to review the ever so famous, Lagunitas IPA. I am very excited to try this beer mainly because of the debates surrounding it whether it is a great IPA or “crap”. So here it goes I cannot wait to try it!

Appearance- Right into the pour, a nice one and a half finger of head forms that is slowly going down with mild lacing on the glass. The beer has a solid amber orange sight to it. It is fairly transparent with lots of carbonation bubbles shooting up the glass.

Smell- Very floral right from the initial smell. Just adding to the floral aroma a slight earthiness and pine are ever so present in this brew. Finally, I am picking up a major sweetness to the scent of this beer definitely some malt in it.

Taste- Great, with the first gulp a get a fantastic dry hops taste on the back of my tongue that lingers for a few seconds. Let’s take a second taste, Great floral and piney hints smack you right in the mouth although it is milder than I thought. I don't taste as much malt or sweetness in this beer though and the scent definitely says otherwise.

Mouthfeel- This is a well bodied beer. It is most certainly a medium body and not so watery as some IPA's I have had. This is a solid American IPA in this category that’s for sure. The carbonation has really slowed down though so it is not quite as smooth as the initial sip.

Overall, solid beer. I would recommend it to anyone who likes craft beer. It is not the best IPA ever, but it really does the job. So following up on how I feel about this beer and continuing to the everlasting debate; I like it and I would definitely buy it again. But, I'll have to have a second one to make sure! CHEERS!
