Not the best, but definitely one of my favorite go-to, easy to find beers.

Not bad. Not particularly a strong hoppy IPA, but it was on sale for only $11/12 pack. I prefer my IPA'a a little stronger and hoppier but overall not bad for the price.

Very nice dark gold color and foamy head. Hints of citrus and and apple on the nose.....a subdued but inviting aroma. Really balanced, complex taste that isn't too hop-forward or biscuity. The finish is the best part.....hints of grapefruit, pine and old road. This beer feels great on the palate.....perfect balance. Definitely want some of this beer in my fridge.

A pour from the tap with a small head but ample carbonation. A light golden color. A smooth hoppy aroma. A very nice smooth hop flavor. Maybe just a hint of fruit. Nice crisp mouthfeel. Overall a fine IPA on draft st BJ's Brewhouse. I'll have another.

Lagunitas IPA
6.2% alc. 355ml
Brewed in Petaluma, California and Chicago, Illinois.

The beer has a thick white head that dissipates quickly. The colour of the beer is copper.

The aroma is pine and grapefruit but not overpowering.

The taste is pine, citrus, and an overall pleasant hop bitterness.

The beer is light to medium bodied.

The finish is tart and dry.

My first time trying this beer and I really enjoyed it. I'll definitely add it to my rotation.

On tap at Angelo's Coal Fired Pizza in Kingston Ma. Nice copper color and citrusy nose. Not a whole lot of malt with the taste being primarily citrus with some bitterness on the finish. An OK beer.

L: Copper gold color with a small white head and a few specks of lacing around the glass.

S: Skunky, weedy, some pine, an odd mineral note, a little bit of citrus. Not the most inviting aroma.

T:. Skunky weedy hops, a little bit of pine and citrus, some toasted dark caramel malt. This is a very muddled beer that is all over the place. Medium bitterness.

F: Medium body and carbonation pretty smooth.

O: Not a fan, this beer is super skunky and all over the place.

Pours a medium copper color with a small head
Smells pleasantly hoppy with alcohol detectable in the smell
The taste is dense notably of bitter hops and a solid ipa taste overall

More solid than I expected, would recommend
