4.44/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 fluid ounce bottle into an IPA glass. No freshness date.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with a slight orange tint. A few bubbles are seen making their way to the top. A generous white and fluffy foam head forms and slowly collapses. Nice rings of lace form throughout.

Smell: Citric notes of grapefruit mingle with earthier notes of pine and flowers. Notes of roasted pine nuts are buried underneath the strong notes from the hops.

Taste: Hops up front. The hops are dominated by citrus but those herbal notes from the nose are also present. Not much taste from the malts here. Their sole purpose is to tame the hops and they fulfill their role well. Very light nutty notes develop in the aftertaste. Dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Easy drinking.

Overall: Excellent traditional IPA offering from Lagunitas. The hops are flavorful but not overwhelming. Certainly a staple for any IPA lover's fridge.

From a bottle...
the quintessential ipa w honey color w orange tint
strong but not overwhelming hop smell
crisp and not too oily or boozy mouthfeel
tastes great with forward hops and strong sour aferrtertaste, but balanced enough to have w a meal or have a few at a bbq. Distinctive lagunitas flavor. A great beer to just have in the fridge, interesting enough for serious beer folks but not too overpowering for folks who arent regular craft drinkers. A go-to that doesnt dissappoint!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This is a decent IPA. Forced to drink at a festival but enjoyed several. Light to medium color with tan head and minimal lacing. Smell is fruity and not too overbearing to affect the taste. Good overall taste with more aftertaste that is bitter. Overall this is a decent beer and will probably have again.
