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.
