2.98/5  rDev -23.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Aroma: Light lemongrass, slightly piney character up front. A bready malt base asserts itself and there are some slight yeast notes as well which makes me think of fresh bread dough. Aroma is kind of muddled between the hop aromas, malt character, and yeast notes.

Appearance: Crystal clear golden-amber pour with a nice 1-finger off white head. Head retention is good and lacing is nice on the glass. Effervescence noted as it sits in the glass.

Flavor: Soft orange juice-like flavors up front with a jostling back and forth of juicy sweetness and pithy citrus bitterness. A fresh bread dough malt base again asserts itself. Firm hop bitterness leaves the beer appropriately balanced with more piney hop resin flavor after it warms. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is long, lingering, and bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. No creaminess, oiliness, or alcohol heat.

Overall impression: A well crafted, balanced American IPA. Pretty tame even by Lagunitas current standards. Enjoyable but slips into the "sea of same-ness" with other American IPA's.

Serving type: bottle
