I am not the biggest fan of IPAs, but do like some and this is one example of what I do not like about many IPAs, and a lot of west coast US beers in general.

Like most Lagunitas beers, it looks pretty good with a deep gold body and pretty nice white head with a bit of lacing.

In aroma, taste, and feel, though, it is utterly unbalanced and one-dimensional with essentially nothing but grapefruit smell and taste. It is bitter, of course, but has nothing else to balance it and the real problem for is that I taste absolutely nothing but grapefruit pulp. The feel is a bit rough and thin. This does nothing at all for me.

A nice rocky white head that sits for a while atop a nice dark gold, averagely carbonated ale. The head leaves some nice lace as well.

The aroma is not as pungent as i like because i like my ipas to grab my attention at first whiff. But it is a nice grapefruity smell that can be very nice on a hot day.

The flavor is mild in terms of bitterness untill the end when it sticks to your tongue. There is very little malt flavors percievable due to the intense hoppy flavors. I think that it is Galena hops which they use to bitter this beer but the flavor hop is too indistinct to identify.

The mouthfeel is good as it finishes cleanly and has little weight on the tongue. i like how you don't feel like you just ate something after drinking on of these.

Overall i would recommend this beer on a hot summer day or night when you have friends over who want a new beer but not one so intense as to make them puckered up. I probably would not buy this beer again as there are hoppy pale ales in my area in which i can find the distinct bitterness in a more diverse flavor profile.

V.06
Copper body with cotton head of about one finger that receded quickly and much sticky lace initially.
Flat aroma of paper.
Taste? Think hopped-up Coor's Light. Bitter finish, with a thin presence in my mouth.
Although I was hoping for a lot, this was Lagunitas' third strike.
This doesn't deserve to be holding any craft IPA title, that's for sure.
