A solid example of consistent but not overwhelming hop influence throughout. Great sweet hop nose, detectable citrus hop flavor, and a mildly spicy and bitter finish. Minimal dark malts as evidenced by the color, hops are clearly the predominant flavor here as they should be. Finishes clean and dry making it a great beer to enjoy with a wide range of foods.

Nationwide distribution of this beer has been impressive over the last several years. It can be found either on tap or in bottles at nearly any bar, East or West Coast. Cranking out this many IPA's its tough to keep the hop profile consistent but Lagunitas does a great job. Hopefully they can continue to provide this tasty offering.

I have had this beer a few times, both in a bottle and on-tap, most recently on tap a few days back while in Chicago.

Overall, the beer is a better than average IPA, but there is nothing about this beer that makes me want to continually come back to it. It has a nice color to it, amber/orange, which produced a nice light foamy head. The beer had a nice hoppy aroma and the taste was the same, but it is just a straight forward IPA. No complexity to it, just simply straight forward. The beer was really easy to drink, which might have been the best quality of the beer, and it left a nice dry aftertaste. Good example of the style.
