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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

LOOK: Classic Straw Yellow/Golden Color, 1/2 Inch Foamy White Head that Dissipates Quickly Moderate Lacing

SMELL: Moderate to High Hoppiness, Citrus Scents Very Evident,

TASTE: Grainy yet Malty with Gradual Bitterness that tends to Hang after the Swallow

FEEL: Good Balance of Carbonation

OVERALL: Another Quality Lagunitas Product that I will Recommend to Others and Purchase to Enjoy Again

3.75/5  rDev -3.4%

Appearance: Dark blond with a thin ring of foam.

Smell: Piney hops.

Taste: Moderately strong bitterness up front, into a malt backbone that leaves a mild bitterness showing through that persists into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Moderately thick and carbonated.

Overall: Good smell and taste, though pretty standard for IPAs coming out of California. Its very wide distribution makes it a good stand-by.

Tap from Lazy Dog Macon. Pours dark gold with white head. Tastes of pine hops up front, followed by a dry and plain finish. Starts off strong and hoppy but ends like a typical and unexciting beer. Could be better.
