Poured on tap at the Auld Irisher in Orange, CA. Reviewed from notes.

A- Finger width fluffy white head. Laces well but limited retention. Clear amber color.

S- Hoppy and citrusy. Light floral hops and lemony scents. Very airy and summery nose.

T- Floral hops in the taste with some slight bittering, boy very watery.

M- Very light bodied and too watery.

O- Might be a good summer beer, but I would avoid it again.

It's been far too long since we have been able to find ANY Lagunitas beers here on the front range, but slowly it is making cooler shelves and taps again! Lagunitas IPA, their flagship brew, pours a brilliant copper-amber, with light amounts of white head that clings all over the glass. Citrus (grapefruit) and floral(pine) hop aromas coming swinging out of the gate, with sweet and bready malt tones poking through as well. Grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, bubble gum, and pine resiny flavors dominate the pallet before biscuity malt flavors can even it all out, with light caramel and bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and a moderate amount of carbonation round out this tasty IPA. A hop-forward West Coast IPA at it's finest, glad to have it back!

A relative newcomer to the area. Not sure how fresh this is, but its still impressive. A nice pine aroma up front. Perfect carbonation leads to a nice mouthfeel and a good sturdy malt presence. Just enought to carry the hops. A really easy, but engaging sipper. I'm going to have another.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into an imperial pint.

All this time enjoying Lagunitas brews and I haven't had their flagship, their single IPA. It's got a tiny head for the style, and a clear orange body. The aroma is a solid citrus and pine hop. The taste is good, it's that kind of transparent "hop juice" style IPA that I can down like water. The malts step completely to the side, letting the hops take the wheel. The hops aren't an aggressive driver, they drive 55 on the freeway. It's a great drive for everyone. The mouthfeel is mellow and slightly drying, and the drinkability is very good. Overall, it's a great, drinkable IPA. It won't punch you in the face, but that's what Hop Stoopid is for.
