3.71/5 rDev -4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Fresh 22oz er from the tap at a local restaurant. Paired with Italian food.
A - Dark bronze body, pretty flat in terms of carbonation but the lace that was there did last all the way through the 22oz glass.
S - Citrusy hops, somewhat herbal. Seems scaled back from alot of the west coast ipas, remained to be seen in the taste though...
T - Really well balanced IPA, as the smell suggests it is more subtle than alot of them being brewed now. It makes for a very drinkable beer, as it doesnt wear my palate down and the flavors stay balanced and pair nicely with food.
M - Great up front and mid-palate, only ding I'd really give it is a bit of a twinge in the aftertaste.
O - A good option to go with if youre looking for an inoffensive IPA that you want to session or have a meal with.

This is a very classic IPA. It had a fairly large head when brought to my table. It has crisp citrus flavors, with a little bit of a hop aftertaste. I'm not sure of all the flavors, but they combine to create this delicious IPA that goes great with any type of food

Poured from a brown bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma was piney hops. Not strong, but pleasant.
An inch think, off white head was atop a gold, maybe light copper body. Very clear. Big bubbles in the head and a few bubbles visible rising from the bottom of the glass. As I drank the beer some lacing was visible on the glass.
Taste was assertive piney hops. Not overpowering but definitely a strong hop flavor. I tried to find a malt character but just kept coming back to the hops. That said, though, it's not just pure hop juice. This is a very enjoyable IPA. Easy to drink and enjoy.
I've had the pleasure of visiting the Lagunitas brewery and tap room in Petaluma, CA on several occasions and I do enjoy their beers anywhere I can get them. If you're looking for a quality IPA this will not disappoint.
