22 oz. bottle, no bottled on date present, but I'm assuming it's fresh because my local beer store just got these back in stock about a week ago. Poured into a Boulevard tulip.

A - Nice traditional amber IPA appearance with a nice two finger frothy head lingering around, with a mad amount of bubbles going crazy all over the glass. I think the head is actually getting larger instead of smaller, if that makes any sense. Significant amounts of lacing on the way down. After the bubbles have settled, it reveals a nice quantity of sediment floating around.

S - Smells like the bitter tasty dank nugs hop bomb that I know this beer is! Smell is fabulous. Citrus. Grapefruit. Pine. Slight cat piss acidity smell, which might sound wrong but trust me, that's the kind of sh*t I'm into as a hophead.

T - The hop bitterness jumps out of the glass and smacks you right in the palate. Little bit of a spicy hotness. One of my favorite IPA's for damn sure.

M - Mouthfeel is pretty fabulous as well. Perfectly balanced, perfect level of carbonation, perfect resinous aftertaste sticking to the roof of my mouth.

Overall, this is probably my favorite bottle by Lagunitas, and definitely one of my favorite IPA's in general. And with a solid 8.0% abv at only $4.99 a bottle, this brew probably couldn't get any better if it tried.

Too much RIS, having a bit of a hop itch.

A: Clear copper colored with a white head. Pretty good lacing and retention.

S: Getting a decently strong caramel backbone followed by a wide array of hop scents. Grapefruit, pineapple, resiny, spicy., and earthy. Great display of hop aromas.

T: Taste is not as strong as the nose would suggest but tasty nonetheless. Mainly pineapple and citrusy hops. Finishes with a bit of hop spiciness with a small touch of sweetness. Not as bitter as I was expecting.

M: Medium-full body with medium carbonation. A decent dryness.

O: Probably the best in it's price range. Definitely worth a try.
