On-tap at Taco Mac Perimeter. Dismal IPA selection, so I chose Lagunitas, as I've never had a bad beer from them before.
The beer was served in a pint glass. There was no head whatsoever, not even a film over the top. The beer was uber-clear, copper color. I would have never served a beer like this unless I knew that's the way it was supposed to look.
The smell reminded me of when you're cleaning up the next morning after a party, stale macro beer. No hops, just a sweet-sour aroma. It tasted like a flat macro, not even drinkable. I told my waitress it was not a good beer and she said she gets that a lot with the Lagunitas IPA. I can't figure out if it was the quality of the beer or the treatment from the establishment. Perhaps both. I have had quite a few beers from this restaurant before and I've never had a problem. I've never had a Lagunitas IPA before either, but I have had their Maximus which I enjoyed.
I drank less than half and finished my meal drinking Atlanta chlorinated water instead.
Serving type: on-tap

Bought this 22oz bomber (no freshness dating) from Total Wine for a little over $5. That's a pretty good price for such a quality ale. Poured into a wide-mouth Ball jar.
A: Beautiful copper coloring with excellent, billowy head.
S: I get a lot of malt--ala a DIPA. Smells really fresh.
T: Not your typical IPA; malt up front, with nice, hoppy background. I wonder if it would be reversed if fresh. This is a really mellow IPA. That's dangerous...you could drink a lot!
Drinkability: I was hoping this would be my new, "go-to-IPA", but unfortunately I couldn't get that wallop of grapefruit and other citrus notes I crave. No worries, it's still a GREAT example of the style. I will drink this again. THANKS LAGUNITAS!
