Not sure how fresh it is. No date on the bottle, but here goes!
It's a pretty good-looking IPA. A finger of fluffy white head tops off a classic golden body. The head sticks around pretty well, and leaves plenty of lacing.
It smells of pine and citrus. Bitterness and a bit of sweet, biscuity breadiness. A good, albeit standard West Coast IPA smell.
The taste is not too robust, in my opinion. Very smooth grapefruit citrusy body, but it doesn't follow through on the finish. The mouthfeel is similarly good at first, but just doesn't satisfy as it goes down. While this makes for a very drinkable brew, I think a little more crispness could do this IPA some good. Maybe it's not as fresh as it could be? We may never know.
Lagunitas has a good, solid flavor, and has all the signs of a good IPA. I would definitely keep some in my fridge now and then as a go-to beer - if it were cheaper and more readily available around Pittsburgh.

I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.
