One of my favorite beers can't believe I've never read that before a good low-potency American IPA

L: nice champagne color with a small head and nice lacing.
S: a nice grapefruit citrusy smell with a a slight navel orange tone
T: smooth, crisp and dry. Strong grapefruit/bitter taste. Very pleasant to the palate. It has a nice, lingering finish.
F: light and crisp with a dry finish.

A nice IPA for those who might not have a huge selection of IPA’s in their area. I greatly enjoyed it. I probably will buy it again in the future. Cheers!

One of my favorites. A nice crisp American IPA with a great flavor and aftertaste. Pours well; wonderful color and foam.

I like the Lagunitas beers, but as an IPA I feel like this falls a little short. I feel like it has too many earthy flavours to be enjoyed as an IPA. I like the "Lil Sumpin Sumpin" when in the mood for a complex flavour.
