look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

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.
