look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Light-amber color with a moderate-sized white head that slowly faded.

Smell: Piney hop aromas dominate.

Taste:The pine aromas carry over to the taste. The finish ends fairly dry with some mild pine notes.

Mouth-feel: Medium body with a medium level of carbonation.

Overall: Good IPA to my usually Imperial Stout-preferring Palate.

Picked up a 6-pack of this for very cheap, about 7 dollars. The price shows.

Color is a sort of cheap-looking amber.
Taste is almost non-existent. I can taste a hint of bitterness, faintly like it's calling to me from behind a locked door. "Let me in! Let me in!" only to be muffled by its assailant, Lagunitas brewing co.

Though it was cheap, I do not buy beer because it's cheap. Would not buy again!
