Clear orangish amber with barely half a finger of white head that quickly fades to a thin lacing.The smell is mainly of grapefruit with a little pine. The smell pretty much predicts the taste, which is rather underwhelming.

I have usually liked Lagunitas offerings. This is a good IPA, but it is competing with a fair number of really good IPAs. I wouldn't go out of my way to get it, even though it is a decent beer, as there are several IPAs locally that are both easier to find and better.

Poured from 12oz bottle in tulip glass

A - clear dark yellow in color. little to no head at all.

S - citrus and pine. weak nose but ok aroma from what I can perceive.

T - citrus comes through more in the mouth than on the nose, thankfully. Think this hop taste has mellowed leading me to think this is an old bottle but what I can taste is not too bad.

M - pretty spot on for an IPA. Hops presence could be more up front but carbonation and finish both work well.

O - middle of the road IPA, and now days, that is a crowded road indeed. On the plus side, its readily available, decently priced and fairly tasty. On the down side, there really are better IPAs out there, so I dont think Ill be drinking too many of these. If you see some and havent had it, get some.

Pours a clear, light copper with a soapy white head that settles to a thin cap. Lovely floral hop aromas of pine resin, grapefruit, and fresh-cut grass. More resinous, floral hops, lots of grapefruit and pine with a mild caramel and baked cracker malt profile. Mouthfeel is crisp and drinkable, with a medium body and solid carbonation. Overall a superb "everyday" IPA, and it's affordable to boot.

This beer has an intense hop aroma as soon as you poor it and stays intense until you've finished drinking it. It's so pungent that it really does impact the flavor of the beer on the pallet. The flavor though is deliciously balanced and hoppy. The clarity is perfect and the abv is just right.

Overall, I would prefer less hop aroma but overall, I like this beer and will definitely buy it again and again.
