Growler fill at Frugal Mc D's. Poured into NB globe glass.
A: Pours clear, gold with an amber tint. Thick head. Great retention, taking forever to recede. Lots of sticky bubbles left over as it dissipates.
S: Smells clean, grassy, piney hops. Scents of grapefruit and other citrus.
T: This one's all hops. Up front tastes of earthy pine, grains and grass. You're left with a strong lingering bitterness. Nice hop flavoring here. Tastes fresh. Some malt balance but mostly a hop bomb here.
M: Mouthfeel is on the thicker side yet somewhat slick. Definitely a lingering mouth feeling to match the bitterness that clings after swallowing. Medium amount of carbonation. Feels good all around. What you would expect and hope for from an IPA.
O: My first Lagunitas experience here. They recently made it to Nashville and I look forward to trying other styles. A great IPA all around here. Well balanced with fantastic hop flavors. This one ranks up there with the top IPA's in my book.
Serving type: growler
