Light IPA as advertised but has a soft buttery hop flavor. Slightly bitter aftertaste even for such a thin beer. Real enjoyable overall. On the dance floor with other session IPAs I have tried. Would gladly drink a few but would prefer a tad more body even in a session beer.

BOD 230/14. Crystal clear light amber, golden, pour. World Class massive head, lacing and retention. Outstanding complex nose of citrus (grapefruit, tangerine and light tropicals) over a light biscuit sweetness coupled with a spicy note. Light body with a slightly heavier than water texture when very cold, but thickens up to slightly slick at room temperature. Slightly above normal carbonation with just a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The nice flavor profile is reasonably intense, complex and balanced. For a session ale, it's rather flavorful. It begins with a blended citrus hop flavor that fades into mild bitterness. As the bitterness fades in the middle, it takes on a rind note over a nice biscuit background sweetness. The finish is crisp and leaves you with a nice lingering tangerine bitterness. Lagunitas has another winner!
