3.56/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Clear yellow-orange pour with a two finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. Perfumey floral nose with hints of mango, orange peel, pine, lemon, and that odd, almost squashy smell I almost always seem to detect with Lagunitas beers. The taste is citrus dominated with hints of tangerine, lemon, and grapefruit along with pine, mango, caramel, and unfortunately, that squashy-pumpkin character again. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with nice carbonation and good balance between the sweet malt and bitter hops. The finish is crisp, tangy and dry. Overall this is a solid IPA, but I just can't get past that squash thing.

3.68/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

appearance is a clear copper, pours two fingers of white head that retains reasonably well until eventually settling into a thin layer of head that retains throughout.

smell; citrus fruit, bit of floral hop character, molasses.

taste; mildly fruity, citrusy hop character, hint of resiny hop oil, touch of malt in the background.

mouthfeel; light/medium body, very carbonated.

overall; enjoyable enough but unexciting, it's a difficult task for an American IPA to really stand out and this beer proves just that.
