12oz bottle poured into a lagunitas mason jar

A: clean clear orangey amber, with a little over a finger of head that dissapates nicley and leavs some touches of lacing

S: the aroma is a little on the weak side, smell is of
Citrus hops and a touch of pine, it smells good but unjust wish it were a bit more pungent in the aroma department.

T: delicious citrusy hops with a touch of pine and bitterness, overall the flavor is very well rounded, and delicious.

M: a light medium body with medium carbonation, it is very drinkable, and delicious. With a dry finish and a touch of bitter aftertaste.

O: a very good ipa, delicious and drinkable, with well balanced citrus hops flavor and a touch of pine, a great go to ipa.

Clear orangish amber with barely half a finger of white head that quickly fades to a thin lacing.The smell is mainly of grapefruit with a little pine. The smell pretty much predicts the taste, which is rather underwhelming.

I have usually liked Lagunitas offerings. This is a good IPA, but it is competing with a fair number of really good IPAs. I wouldn't go out of my way to get it, even though it is a decent beer, as there are several IPAs locally that are both easier to find and better.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from 12oz bottle in tulip glass

A - clear dark yellow in color. little to no head at all.

S - citrus and pine. weak nose but ok aroma from what I can perceive.

T - citrus comes through more in the mouth than on the nose, thankfully. Think this hop taste has mellowed leading me to think this is an old bottle but what I can taste is not too bad.

M - pretty spot on for an IPA. Hops presence could be more up front but carbonation and finish both work well.

O - middle of the road IPA, and now days, that is a crowded road indeed. On the plus side, its readily available, decently priced and fairly tasty. On the down side, there really are better IPAs out there, so I dont think Ill be drinking too many of these. If you see some and havent had it, get some.

Pours a clear, light copper with a soapy white head that settles to a thin cap. Lovely floral hop aromas of pine resin, grapefruit, and fresh-cut grass. More resinous, floral hops, lots of grapefruit and pine with a mild caramel and baked cracker malt profile. Mouthfeel is crisp and drinkable, with a medium body and solid carbonation. Overall a superb "everyday" IPA, and it's affordable to boot.
