In my opinion, this is exactly what an IPA should be.
It pours the color of honey, and the head disappears pretty quickly, but leaves some nice lacing.
The smell and taste are both dominated by citrus. There's a nice amount of yeast in there too, but this is seriously the most citrusy beer I've ever had. Bitterness is moderate, and as such doesn't require a lot of malt sweetness for balance.
Mouthfeel is oily-smooth, and might have been too syrupy if it weren't cut with just the right amount of carbonation.
Lagunitas IPA is a fantastic beer, all the better for being inexpensive and readily available.
Serving type: on-tap
