Pours pale brown with thick white head and large carbonation bubbles. Excellent leaving. Smell is typical American IPA with virus strong citrus aroma with a hint of floral. Flavor is pretty much all hops, tastes a bit thin. Pretty good beer, but not sure I'll be buying a 6 pack.

a. golden/orange color with two finder head. Great lacing around the glass that lasts.

s. Smell of pine and grapefruit.

t. Taste of pine/hops followed by more pine and hops.

m. For as thin as the beer is, it leaves a syrup like film in the mouth.

o. I expected more from this beer. Maybe because of all of the great beers I have had from Lagunitas. This one is not my favorite. Seems like a one trick pony - all hops, no layers or complexity. That being said, it is still better than most.

A: Nice copper color; perhaps a little light for the style; moderate lacing

S: Not a lot on the nose; a little disappointing; A little pine, citrus, grapefruit.

T: Nice, but understated; similar to the nose; you can definitely taste the hops; finish is mild with less bitterness than your average IPA;

M: Medium bodied, but on the light side; crisp and dry; the bitterness lingers

O: A nice IPA, but nothing about it stands out.
