A: Upfront hop aromas of danky pine and resin with some citrus qualities

A: light orange color with excellent clarity with moderate amount of head retention

T: Piney and resinous hops give way to some malt sweetness

M: med-bodied, med carbonation

O: A bit of an old school IPA. While not as IBU heavy as Maximus, IPA’s these days go for more tropical fruit and melon characteristics. However, if fresh – Lagunitas IPA is dangerously approachable.

I generally dislike IPAs, but I really like this beer. It's not too hoppy, and has a lighter flavor, not too floral. If you're expecting an IPA taste you might be disappointed.

Thick, dense, foamy head sitting atop a gold-colored body; tightly packed carbonation bubbles slowly rising. Citrus rind aroma; pine and orange marmalade. Mild malt notes with a very good presence of orange flavor. Medium body; somewhat coarse on the palate with the carbonation; wet, initially, with a semi-dry finish.

This beer rates a solid "yeah, boy". It doesn't set any new standards and won't stand-out as anything exceptional, but there is no denying it's pleasing taste and easy drinkability. Solid and very pleasing in an understated yet very satisfying manner...

Hard to find a bad beer from these guys. Deep golden pour with sticky white top. Aroma is pine and malt. Flavor is more of the same, with a bit of a bite at the finish that just brings you back for more. Malty, piney goodness, smooth stuff.

A -
Visually, a clear amber beer with a half inch white head and moderate lacing.
S -
Aroma of hops and caramelized malts. Hint of floral. Slight fruity smell like apricot and citrus. Hint of pine.
T -
Beer had a good balance between the sweetness from the caramelized malts and the bitterness from the hops. Also can taste the apricot and citrus.
M -
Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Very clean finish.
O -
Very nice American Pale Ale.
