Lagunitas is often orange, but this vibrancy is seemingly past even hop stoopid, just perfect carbonation and look.

Big dry hopped aroma, zippy in the nose.

Taste takes on every major hop mouthfeel impression, citrus at both ends, grapefruit and orangey. Then there's a slight pineyness to it. Bitterness just perfect, tempered by an even amount of caramel. Tastes as advertised, very fresh.

A good straight up fresh hop beer, goes down smoother with every sip, a crowd pleading hop head's dream.

Wing Central in the U district, poured from bottle to pint glass. Appearance was straw to orange, clear and minimal head. Aroma was mild for an ipa, no overwhelming smells. More mild fruits than citrus. Taste was very balanced. Subtle and earthy hop presence. Palate was smooth and soft, goes down easy. Very crisp and refreshing. Not a hop bomb, and I’m not the kind of person who seeks those out. I really enjoyed this for an ipa. Balanced and fruity, in a good way.

Came out a glowing orange that rivaled even hop stoopid, hit those fat hearty ipa color scheme. Even the hop oils couldn't stop a decent 1/2" white head. Aroma kicked down heavy citrus in the aroma, very hoppy, had a substantial amount of carbonation help waft those forest notes.

Taste gave a varied citrus presence, great green vegetal hoppiness, minor amount of caramel to try and hold it down. Bitterness in the 60ibu range I'd guess.

This is an elite 1st tier wet hopped ale. I think this was probably the precursor to Born Yesterday.

A - Pours a nice translucent gold color that has a small creamy white head that left good lacing as it fell.

S - It has a nice earthy hop aroma. There is also a sweetness to it, as well as notes of citrus.

T - At the very beginning there is a slight sweetness, which is then followed by citrus and grapefruit hops. There is a fruitiness that also comes into play. At the finish the hoppy bitterness seems to stick to the mouth and slowly fade away.

M - This beer has a nice medium body with good carbonation. The bitterness seems to stick to your mouth, but it still goes down very smooth.

D - This is a very drinkable beer. I could easily drink a few glasses of this. I would definitely try this beer again, and I hope that I run into it again. This is truly a great IPA. Good job Lagunitas. Cheers.
