I've never been an IPA type a guy until I drank the Lagunitas IPA.

Smooth with just enough hops to give it some complexity beyond your standard beer.

Appearance - Beautiful Copper/Bronze. Nice White head that lasts until the final drop.

Smell - Fruity, and Sweet. Perfect

Taste - As damn close to perfect as I have ever had. A nice subtle hops flavour that gives me the fix I need. Again I'm not a IPA drinker most of the time but Lagunitas is my new go to. Love the taste, much milder than a Sam Adams Lat 48 IPA or your typical IPA. Damn close to perfect

Mouthfeel - Great, smooth and just enough carbonation to keep things interesting. A great beer body and smooth as can be.

Overall - 4.5/5.0
Personally I'd rate the beer a 5 but knowing that I have yet to taste anywhere near enough beer to make that judgement call I'll give it a 4.5, damn good beer, great taste, smell, body, and appearance. My new go to!

If you have been thinking about trying an IPA but were previously turned off by the ultra hoppiness of some of the other brews out there this is a great option. Mild on the hops, yet extraordinary on everything else. The perfect beer in this drinkers opinion. A must!
