Pours a clear golden, nearly orange. Thick finger and a half worth of creamy white head. Moderate retention. Lots of carbonation

Smells of grassy and piney hops upfront. There's some grapefruit in there. Caramel malts abound. There's a faint bubblegum aroma lingering around in there somewhere

Taste is of grassy, floral, and pine hops. Slightly resinous. Grapefruit and citrus. Burnt caramel malts. Bitterness is on the high side but tasty

Feels crisp and resinous. Refreshing

Overall I'm actually surprised I don't like this more. It is quite good but after falling in love with little sumpthin, I thought this would blow my mind. Still worth getting but not my favorite from lagunitas

A nice IPA overall. But I actually might slightly prefer New Dogtown.

Pours straw colored soapy white head.

Smells nice enough but might like a bit more in the way of aroma.

Usual suspects on the palate. Citrus hops maybe some orange and pine.

Easy drinking on the palate. Finishes nice and dry.
