IPA
Lagunitas
---poured from bottle to pint glass---

Appearance
Perfectly golden, small amount of carbonation lifting to a thin, but strong head. Excellent lacing 'til the final sip.

Smell
Piney and grassy with hints of tangerine and grapefruit.

Taste
Initial bitterness gives way to sweet malt, but not much more. The smell leaves much to be desired when tasting this IPA.

Mouth-feel
Refreshing but not overly hoppy, which is what I'm looking for in an IPA.

Overall
The lack of distinct flavor and the all to fleeting 'beer' taste disappoints me. Other Lagunitas beers induced high expectations, but left me with low scoring beer.
