Yes, it is an IPA. Yes, I was expecting hops. What I wasn't expecting is the lack of Lagunitas' characteristic flavor profile missing, for the most part. Clear golden color, nice lacing, sharp hop presence, with a bit less malt than expected. Malt is there in the nose a bit. Feel is ok, but a teeny bit thin for both the style and brewer. Glad I finally tried it, but will seek L for their standard bearers in the future.

This ale pours a crystal clear golden amber color with a thick white head that slowly gives way to a nice film and lacing. The aroma is more subtle than most west coast ipas. It consists of a generous amount of citrus hops with a slight malt backbone and some pine and grass notes. This offering sips very clean, light and smooth with just enough mouth coating resin to make it very delicious. The flavor is much more forward than the aroma lets on with a substantial amount of citrus and pine resolving to a nice malty sweetness and finishing with a lasting hoppy bitterness. This is a very well crafted ipa and can stand up with Stone and Green Flash as some of the best widely available west coast ipas.
