Enjoyed this on tap at my favorite supper club. This arrived at my table in a standard pint glass.

A) This is amber in color, very clear. There was maybe a half a finger of foam, that settled quickly. A little bit of lacing near the top of the pint.

S) I really enjoy that West Coast IPA aroma. This one had a little pine, definite oranges, grapefruit, and some canned peaches.

T) Very nice malt/hops balance, not overly bitter at all. This has that malt sweetness, and just the right amount of pine, and citrus fruit, mostly grapefruit. Slightly dry finish. Nice clean aftertaste.

M) This was medium bodied, with a decent amount of carbonation. Actually, based on appearances, I expected a heavy amount of carbonation, but this was well done, and quite smooth, almost soft on the palate.

O) Really enjoyed this IPA, not the best of the West Coast options, but very solid all around.

Served out of a 12 ounce bottle and into a UK Pint Glass.
Appearance-orange in color with a nice frothy 2 finger head.
Smell-smells of tropical fruit and malt, notes of grapefruit, orange, tangerine.
Taste-Nice hoppy grapefruit notes, west coast hops coming through, cascade, very solid IPA.
Mouthfeel-pleasant, leaving me wanting to take another sip.
Overall-this is a very solid IPA, one of my favorite and a true West Coast IPA with the west coast hops coming through.

This is a vibrant golden-amber in the glass. Great hoppy aroma, grassy with some onions and crushed garlic—in a good way. (Thanks to Lagunitas Sucks for helping me pick up those notes.) It’s a West Coast IPA, definitely, with a hop bite that’s light and crisp with a sharp bitterness and a wonderful finish. This is a classic.

Just tapped a horse keg of this brew. I wanted to get a keg of Stoopid but that was harder to get and mo money. This has many of the characteristics of Stoopid.. kind of it's little brother. The only thing I miss is the mouth feel which is lacking in this beer. Very much a refreshing IPA with a nice sharp carbonation typical of Lagunitas brews. Another good beer from a place that makes many great beers.
