Amber color leaning toward copper, thin white head with an ok lace. Smells like a pine forest and taste is piney and grapefruit. A solid West coast IPA, bitter and sweet, a little heat from the alcohol, way too easy to drink for an 8% beer. Definitely worth a try

This is a fun beer Hard to pass up buying a six pack of cans with a nice low price. Citrus is powerful in the scent upon opening the can. Taste is maltier with a little boozy feel. You can taste this imperial iPA but you won’t feel it right away. Not bitter and kind of smooth as it warms. Enjoyable night time drink. Good stuff

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled so citrusy with grapefruit and toasted caramel. Sweet citrus flavor with a nice bitterness and toasted caramel.

12 oz can into a pint glass.
Look: Golden body topped by a good head white head but filled with small suspended sediment.
Hoppy and moderately complex aroma with piney notes dominating.
The flavor has moderately high strength for style but perhaps a touch less bitter than average. More fruity and piney than grassy.
Feel: medium-light body with lively, medium carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: excellent version of the style with very well hidden ABV and restrained bitterness.

Lagunitas is the undeniable king of the budget ipa for an everyday night and this is no exception. Nice dry feel easy going. Cant get a can date but I imagine this is pretty fresh. It's a sort of tuned down maximus still retaining much of the alcohol. Nothing remarkable about the taste but nothing offensive. Pretty light bodied. Prob would pick up again cant hate on a $9 6 pack of this quality.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, some pine. Taste is passion fruit, grapefruit, some mango, a touch of pine, and yeah, it's plenty bitter. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

A: Pours a soapy one finger head. Color is a muddled golden. Head dissipates quickly and some lacing.

S: So fresh! Citrus, grapefruit, wonderfully fragrant floral and piney hops

T: Bitter hops up front, tingling and jumping back and forth between fruity and malty. There's grapefruit, herb-like spices, wheatiness. I'm not sure how to pick out the flavors.

O: Well made imperial IPA. Smooth for how much alcohol it has, this is a winner.

12oz can, rocks glass, Julian date 291 (get your act together Lagunitas).

It’s a rich yellow, quite clear. A sticky white head sits atop it.

Rock candy, pear juice, green grapes, navel orange but not a lot of it.

It’s quite sweet, but mostly balanced by back end bitterness. Juicy sweetness and pear juice again.

The feel is actually quite good; full, smooth, and crisp all at the same time set against biting, strong carbonation. It does a lot to make the sweetness bearable.

It’s a quality beer, no doubt, but I don’t taste that it delivers on the Citra promises. Grapefruit is a primary descriptor for Citra and I get none.

L: Pours amber gold in color. Little head formation and no lacing. Slight ring around glass perimeter.
S: Error 404: smell not found. Seriously, pretty much has no smell to it. The most prominent part of the smell is the malts. Some slight citrus aromas, primarily grapefruit.
T: Malt-forward with citrus flavor on the finish. Nice flavor for what it is. The citrus lingers as well as bitter after taste.
F: Really nice. Medium weight and body with a nice full feel. Carbonation is spot on.
O: An enjoyable offering. The flavor reminds me of the malt backbone that was prominent in OG WCIPAs but it has a nice citrus twist. I found it enjoyable. I am glad to have tried and think others should as well, for the sake of trying new brews. Cheers!

Can from Trader Joe's.

A clear copper with a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks great. The nose is a blend of hops and malt, with caramel, dank weed, citrus and grape. There is so much grape and citrus here - grapefruit, green grapes; juicy, pungent and bitter, pairing nicely with the sweetness. Now, the sweetness is a little more than i typically care for, but it is not too offensive here. The palate opens with a blend of sweetness and bitterness, a grainy, toasty caramel like sweetness paired with a citrus peel bitterness. This is followed by flavors of orange, grape, grapefruit and floral honey. Mildly bitter and mildly sweet on the finish with a touch of alcohol. There's also a noticeably grainy/malty flavor present. Solid stuff.
