A draft poured light amber, clear with head that faded in minutes. Fresh orange hop scent. Very inviting. IPA biterness with acdry finish. Light on the carbonation.

Nice IPA, moderate head, pours clear. Light citrusy aroma. Pleasant mouthfeel and after taste. Priced right too. Good "go to" choice. Will buy again.

Its a pretty good one for one of those big commercial brews that you can get everywhere, not particulalrly exciting but always a solid beer. Ticks all the IPA boxes for aroma, malt, butter finish, without ever really knocking them out of the park.

I'm partial to IPAs so compared to Sam Adams IPA, Lagunitas takes it by a wide margin!

A very basic IPA. Tastes of citrus, bready malts, hops. Good entry beer into this style. Good to session. Enjoyed from bottle with no date. Also a good beer to have at your sports bar if they have it on tap.
