Wow, this is one of those beers that escaped my reviews for forever, for whatever reason, probably was lost in one of the BA crashes, then realized I didn't have a review recently, so decided to get it done.

Tap at tavern in the square in Northboro.

Nice creamy thick 1/2 finger head fades slowly, crystal clear honey tan color.

Nose brings nice hops, fruity and floral, generic fruit, with some tropical notes and faint citrus, floral and slight gassy hops as well, mild sweet base malt.

Taste brings bright hops, floral and fruity again as well as grassy, generic hop fruitiness with light citrus pith and little rind, faint grapefruit pith and juicy Clementine like citrus fruit, nice floral grassy hop character, with fair bitterness that ramps as it goes. Nice base malt to balance at first, then dries on the finish and gets quite bitter, with lingering bitter grassy floral hops and touch spicy.

Mouth is med bod, nice carb.

Overall there is a reason this beer is a staple ipa, great balance with nice bitter finish, great overall hop profile that doesn't go crazy, very enjoyable and tasty.

First time I've had Lagunitas IPA, not bad. A very mellow IPA, easy to drink. A good entry level IPA.
