Gold color - very slightly hazy. Great lacing. Great hoppy smell; reminds me of Stone IPA in smell and taste. Hop forward, smell and taste. Floral & piney, dank. Maybe a bit of biscuit but minimal. Dissipates quickly, but leaves a little behind. Good medium thin feel, though maybe slightly over-carbed. Great beer.

This beer pours a clear bright golden color with a two finger soapy white head. Retention is OK and there is some spotted lacing. Smell is citrus, pine and floral hops with some dankness and a touch of sweet malt. Taste is the same. Feel is very light, but slightly resinous on the back end. Overall a solid beer, but I prefer a few other hoppy Lagunitas offerings more.
