look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: A slightly burnished gold in color. Two fingers of off white head. Moderate lacing.

S: Citrus, pineapple, caramel malt.

T: Citrus, pineapple, bready. Nice malt backbone. Bitter piney hops in back. Great flavor. Don't be fooled by the low 45.6 IBUs. It is hopper than one would imagine.

M: Medium-bodied and low- medium carbonation. A little sticky. Pretty good balance, just a tad on the sweeter side.

O: Right up my alley tastewise. If you like an IPA that is semi sweet, then this is a good one to try. I originally had it on draught and had a few of them in one night because it was so good and not too hoppy/heavy for a session beer. Went back and bought a 22 oz. to fully enjoy it. As of right now, this makes for one of the best session IPAs I've had.

Purchased in a six-pack from my local grocery store- poured from a cold bottle into a room-temperature weizen glass.

A: Poured a massive three fingers of beige head from the bottle; takes a few minutes to recede...lacing is extensive and elaborate. The brew itself is a glassy, translucent amber, with lazy carbonation bubbles visible. Between the ridiculous head and the lack of opacity in the appearance, I'm a bit concerned...

S: Okay, well now we're on to something! I'm getting floral, pine and orange/grapefruit citrus notes all at once. An absolutely killer hop sensation on the nostrils. Like a hop party!

T: It tastes like a florist shop and a grapefruit tree had a baby! A glorious, refreshing flavor with just a hint of oaty malt back end. Carbonation is extremely mild, allowing all the hop intensity (and subtleties) come through unhindered.

M: Although light in carbonation, this is very oily, 'wet' beer on the tongue. I'm usually not a fan of this (especially in IPAs), but it works well here for some reason...maybe because the lingering aftertastes are quite good!

O: I could see myself buying another sixer of Lagunitas IPA down the road...which is the highest compliment I can pay any beer. A very sophisticated, tastefully executed take on the IPA blueprint.
