Perfection from the tap. Another strong brew from Lagunitas.

Not an IPA guy. Drank most of this. Like a slightly gentler Rebel Rouser from Sam Adams. Smells grassy, critrusy and very early summers evening. Taste unlike an IPA. Hoppy yes, but slight bitterness that lingers a tad longer and a bit more intense. Looks amazing. Golden with amber hues. Still won't be an IPA guy, but a 6 pack once in a while would be enjoyable. Fantastic!

Nice straw color with one finger of bright white head. Aroma is amazing with lots of citrus and some floral notes as well.
Taste is similar to aroma of some of malty sweetness on back end. Finishes really smooth with some mild residual bitterness, ridiculously well balanced

This first time I ever had this I had no idea what it was, and just finished a long bike ride. I was completely blown away. Get some.

Real hoppy, which was unexpected. Very citrusy and really quite sweet to taste. It reminded me a bit of Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA.

Smelled fantastic--I was hugging the empty bottle after I had finished, just taking whiff after whiff of that floral, hoppy aroma. This is a heavier pale ale compared to say, Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale.

I enjoyed this very much, but a little too heavy for Close-to-Summer weather for me. Might enjoy this better in the fall. Highly Recommend!

I'm admitedly a beer novice, so take this for what it's worth: this might be the best beer I've ever tried. The carton states how we should cease classifying everything and simply let it be what it is. Amen, especially as it pertains to this beer.
