Served in a tulip.

A: Poured a crystal clear gold color, with a tinge of visible carbonation and a nice two finger head that was only slightly off-white.

S: Pine bomz r' us for sure, with a nice floral component as well. Pretty potent and the West Coast influence was most certainly evident.

T: The pine stains the teeth and this sucker was bitter as hell! Lots of grapefruit, orange, flowers, and a slight yeast component. Yummy!

M: Did I mention this was bitter? As a matter of fact, that bitterness cut through the sweetness and went straight for the jugular. I could have use maybe a micrometer more carbonation, but that's a minor quibble. The lacing was mildly splotchy.

O: Well, once again, I seemed to have dug this one more than most other BAs on here. Well, to each his or her own I guess. Cheers!

Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice dark straw hew with a small white head with nice lacing. Has a nice floral bouquet for the hops, very pleasant. The taste is definitely hoppy, with a bit of a bite. However, a light taste of malt is present. Beer seems to be carbonated well and goes down really smooth. Overall, a good IPA.

Pours a light, bubbly, golden orange with a one-finger bright white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of juicy grapefruit, tropical fruit notes and a bit of malt. Mix of citrus and pine hops in the flavor profile. A bit muted for a fresh West Coast IPA. Begins with a mix or orange and grapefruit notes, followed by a bit of a sweet bready, silky malt before a quick pine finish. Semi-bitter. Nice drinkable, balanced blend.

A: Nice white-ish head, doesn't stick around too long. Clear golden orange color.

S: Good citrus smell, not too strong or overpowering.

T: Good citrus flavor, little bit of orange or grapefruit. Finishes off with a piney tang.

M: Carbonated well, little watery, but in a good way if you don't feel like getting filled up off of one beer.

O: Good solid IPA. nice beer, as expected coming from Lagunitas.

Bottle from The Wine Seller in A2. Pours a light golden hay color with a one finger white head on top. Great floral citrus aroma coming off the top, some pine, and a small bit of sweet citrus peel. Flavor follows with citrus rinds and a light sweetness on the palate to balance. Pale malts are present but this highlights the hops with a crisp finish. Relatively light bodied with high carbonation and a clean finish. Solid, solid IPA.
