Pours a medium copper color with a small head
Smells pleasantly hoppy with alcohol detectable in the smell
The taste is dense notably of bitter hops and a solid ipa taste overall

More solid than I expected, would recommend

Description: Golden, clear appearance with a small amount of white head; pretty standard IPA look. Smell is fruity, with tropical fruits and mandarin orange up front. Taste has a nice dank finish and is not overly bitter, but it lacks the fruit that is apparent in the smell. Not a whole lot of anything on the front of the palate. Feel is a little more carbonated than a normal IPA and it's light.

Suggested food pairing: Burger and fries

If you like this been then you should also try: Two Hearted

Overall: 3.75 (This beer is good but I would not likely drink it again) This beer isn't bad but it isn't anything special. Lagunitas has much better offerings among that while not expressly IPAs are sufficiently hopped to please an IPA drinker. Pass on this one and try Little Sumpin' Sumpin'.
