4.55/5  rDev +17%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

The first time I tried this beer was this summer in Manhattan after a company softball game during my summer internship. I really enjoyed it and I was just getting into craft beer at the time. Upon returning to Pittsburgh I wanted to find this, but I was unable to find any Lagunitas when I went back to Penn State. Thankfully, I stumbled upon a few bottles!

A - Pours a very clean, deep golden, dark straw color and adds about 3 fingers worth of foamy, pure white head. Head lasts for a good amount of time before sticking to the very top of the beer. Some moderate feet and lacing around the glass.

S - The smell is one of the greatest points about this beer. It is so deep, so crisp, very pine and citrus forward. It is incredibly refreshing and pushes its hop-filled agenda. Underneath the floral hops, there's a little bit of spice, and only a faint hint of malty sweetness.

T - Taste is faithful to the nose as it is a hop-dominated beer that overwhelms the taste buds with bitterness before finally relinquishing them to a wave of malts, spice, and fruits. Not the most complex of beers, but it really achieves what the nose sets out to do - deliver a blast of hops.

M - Mouthfeel is medium with a certain breadiness that goes well with the head and carbonation. Lots of carbonation can be seen in the glass and are felt in the mouth to get each individual taste bud involved.

D - Drinkability is high. A powerful yet non-overwhelming flavor, crisp nose, and relatively low ABV makes this one go down fast and smooth. One of my favorite IPAs.
