12oz bottle poured into a Lagunitas Mason glass.
A: Brilliantly clear golden-amber. Two fingers of creamy white head retain extremely well. A thin blanket of lacing coats the glass.
S: A vibrant nose bursting with tropical hop aromas. Tangerine, melon, pineapple, sugary white grapefruit. Mild tropical esters. Hop oils. Grainy and doughy malts underneath.
T: Melon, tangerine, hint of lemon, dank and oily. Touch of passion fruit. Slight tropical esters. Modest bitterness. Grainy malt base. Dry and somewhat understated finish of oily hops and thin grain.
M: Medium bodied. Ample scrubbing carbonation makes it seem a bit lighter than it is and adds a biting crispness. Slightly creamy.
O: In my book this beer goes down as one of the best flagship beers on the planet. Vibrantly hoppy and infinitely drinkable and quenching. The bitterness rests at just the right level. It's enough to keep it approachable but still challenge a green palate and introduce it to what a real beer can be. Excellent quality for the price too. Lagunitas built itself on this beer, and it's a rock-solid foundation.

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.
