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.

5/13/17 (Las Vegas, NV) 12 Oz Bottle, no pour. Citrus, hops and pine aroma. Aroma of flowers and biscuit. Solid bitter hops, pleasantly offset by the citrus taste. Solid carbonation, nice feel. Overall good offering!

Color is amber. Head is an thin blanket with nice lacing. Nose is a nice balance of malt and hops- hops are tropical, citrus, and light pine; medium intensity Palate is quite bitter citrus and pine needles leading into more spicy tropical mid palate finally in a mildly bitter candied citrus finish; medium plus intensity Pros lacing, refreshing, some complexity, crisp refreshing finish, lots of hop character some initial bitterness but easy drinking overall. Con aroma is muted, short palate experience. 90/100.

This is a common but solid IPA that I think is pretty good and quite drinkable.

Look: golden hue, decent head with lacing

Aroma: moderate citrus and pine, perhaps wheaty aroma

Taste: It's bisquit/wheat, grapefruit, orange, and pine, mild, but good.

Feel: Light and crisp

Drunk straight from the bottle. Aroma of flowers and biscuit. Taste was on par with most Lagunitas products. Mouth feel was not overwhelming. All in all a good product. A solid B in my book.
