A standard when it comes to a day in and day out IPA. The balance between malt and bitterness is very nice. The aroma is big, and transitions nicely the the flavor. There is just enough lingering bitterness to satisfy the hop heads, but not enough that it gets overbearing. Well done, indeed.

This brew pours a clear orange color with a two finger head which takes a few minuets to dissipate and thick lacing which stays on the glass until the end.
The smell is orange, lemon, grapefruit with a little bit of pine. It is interesting that I did not find the smell overpowering as it usually is with all of those hop smells included.
The taste doesn't erupt like other brews I have had from Lagunitas, it is hops up front, malts in the middle and oily, pine like hops on the back end. Some hop oil sticks to the tongue after swallowing.
The mouthfeel is thick and chewy as well as a little oily.
Overall this is a good American IPA. The brew did not "pop" for me as did other offerings by Lagunitas but the taste and smell improve once the brew warms up a little bit. This would be a good IPA for someone who would like to try their first IPA but does not want anything 'too bitter'.

Just a classic IPA. My go to IPA. It has the classic hoppy bitter flavor I crave. Leaves that great bitter hoppy taste in your mouth. Just a quintessential west coast IPA. Not too strong. Well balanced. A very drinkable IPA that still gives you the hoppy bitter flavor your crave.

Another fantastic Cali IPA! As soon as you pop open this beer, it's like giving your sense of smell the drug it's been craving! Sexy, light copper in color and leaves nice lacing. This tastes so good, an almost perfect summer IPA! The feel is well balanced. Great bang for your buck, in CO at least! Love, love Lagunitas!
