12oz bottle into tulip.

A - Amber/copper, crystal clear with a gigantic frothy white head.

S - Grapefruit, citrus hops, sweet caramel malt.

T - Citrus and pine hops, toasted malt, mild hop bite. Great balance.

M - Medium bodied, crisp and refreshing. Really smooth clean finish, high carbonation.

O - The insane drinkability and perfect balance of flavors makes this an exceptional IPA. If I'm in the mood for a neutral but flavorful easy drinking IPA, this would be one of my top choices.

12oz bottle poured into snifter.

Pours medium amber, with a 2 finger off white head that sits for a minute. The aroma is very strong in this one, with lots of earthy pineapple right up front. There is also pine working its way thru, along with hints of grapefruit. The smell was a little more earthy than I remember but still some tropical notes are to be found.

The earthy notes keep rolling into the taste. More of the pineapple is present, as is some mango and pine. Good hit of bitterness mid palate, turning to sweetness at the back of the mouth. Not a whole lot of malt is present, you get some hints of it but this one is mostly about the hops. Light to medium mouthfeel with a wet finish. It would be easy to pass this one by, but I always seem to come back to lagunitas. You get your money's worth here, I picked it up for 8.99 a six. It's easy enough to drink that a few is never out of the question.
