I agree with so many of the other reviewers of this ale that it is one of the best examples of an IPA around. It may have its equals, but there are none better among the ones I've tried. It starts out smooth, then a hoppy bitterness appears, and finally a slightly sour taste emerges, emphasis on "slight." If you tasted some that was more than that, maybe it was too old, stored wrong, etc.

received a bottle via beer trade. poured from bottle into an imperial pint glass. boors a dark honey with a fluffy white head and great lacing. some pine and citrus notes in the aroma. Nice malty sweetness at first followed by a mild hop bitterness that lasts for a short period of time. As it warms the hoppy notes linger on the back of your tongue. A delicious pale/ipa

The beer pours with a golden body and ticket white head. Head retention is very nice. The smell is a comforting hop blanket of the American variety. The taste is phenomenal, very smooth but also no slouch in the hops department. Mouthfeel is great and overall just a great beer.

poured from a bottle into my "Cheers" the TV show licensed mug.
it looks great! Light amber... a little cloudy. the best head i've seen in a while. creamy white that last for a while.
not a whole lot on the nose. a little pinesol... but not in a bad way.
the lemon hits me on the first sip. moving more into the rind and pine on the second... i guess that's the pinesol scent i got. there's a hint of smoke or toast. it moves through the citrus range and lands a bit more on a bitter orange as you get a bit more into it. lemony orange - maybe cumquat... with a bit of and iron aftertaste. a little dusty. they yeast starts tasting a little "rapid rise" as it goes on. not at all in a bad way. but a bit in a buddy gave me his homemade apple cider - made with rapid rise - kind of way.
i like it. i will buy it again. it reminds me of the regular lagunitas IPA - but a little milder - again, in a good way. but i won't show it off to someone i'm trying to impress as super dooper.
reading the bottle after my review i agree that this is well suited to an adventure to the UP. it might even be my first choice if making that trek. the iron aftertaste seems to taste like the stream water from that area. not at all a bad thing.

One of my favorite go to beers when I can't find something new I want to try. Bell's Two Hearted ale is a wonderful, non-imperial IPA. The reason I say that is because it seems everyone wants to go imperial these days, and most of the time, I'm drinking a few beers not just one. Nothing wrong with imperials, but they should be that special occasion beer.
Great citrus and pine flavors with a big hop punch. Fairly strong but no phenol kick. A few of these will definitely have you feeling good. Easy go to beer if you like your beers hoppy.
