look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Golden orange. Relatively light colored. 1/2 finger head. Thin layer of foam remains on top.

Piney hop and really sweet malt aromas.

Piney and slightly grassy flavors. Slightly sweet malt. Bitterness not extreme. More balanced than most IPAs.

Thinner mouthfeel and less carbonation than most IPAs I've tried. Slightly dry finish.

Overall, this is a pretty decent IPA. Not my favorite. I could do with more citrus.

4.05/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bomber into a RR snifter...

A - Pours a honey color with a one finger off white head. Head retention is decent at best, but there is a good amount of sticky lacing that clings to the glass...

S - Lots of citrus fruits up front. Also pick up pine, some sweet malt, and a little bit of spiciness...

T - Grapefruit, tangerines, and some malt. Ends with a hint of pine and some lingering grapefruit, and some fading malt. Hops are definitely prominate here, but there is a good amount of malt to be tasted as well...

M - Pretty smooth. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbontaion...

O - Another solid brew from Lagunitas. While I have yet to have a beer that is "above and beyond" from the brewery, I am always surpised by the consistency of their beers. Everything I have tasted from from them has been solid, and this one is no exception...

Cheers...
