look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bought this 22oz bomber (no freshness dating) from Total Wine for a little over $5. That's a pretty good price for such a quality ale. Poured into a wide-mouth Ball jar.

A: Beautiful copper coloring with excellent, billowy head.

S: I get a lot of malt--ala a DIPA. Smells really fresh.

T: Not your typical IPA; malt up front, with nice, hoppy background. I wonder if it would be reversed if fresh. This is a really mellow IPA. That's dangerous...you could drink a lot!

M: Medium-bodied.

Drinkability: I was hoping this would be my new, "go-to-IPA", but unfortunately I couldn't get that wallop of grapefruit and other citrus notes I crave. No worries, it's still a GREAT example of the style. I will drink this again. THANKS LAGUNITAS!
