Beautiful dark gold body with clean white head that stays till the last sip. Smell is the worst part of the beer. Doesn’t smell bad but not impressive. Taste is one of the best out there. Tastes like hops and pine but very balanced. The finish and after taste feel is crisp and not overly bitter. A beer with paying for every week by default if I can’t find a new try.

There's a reason (almost) nobody complains when you take Lagunitas IPA to a party. It's an approachable IPA, not too heavy for a IPA, and not too bitter like Stone IPA. Golden colored, not too bitter, not too hoppy or carbonated. In many ways its the perfect beer to introduce someone to IPAs. Widely available at most bars, markets, and liquor stores. It's fairly inexpensive, a 24 pack usually costs me about $19.99 or so.

a very good IPA, not too weak, not too over bearing and has plenty of flavor in my opinon. But its not hopped to the walls and feels like you drank a full meal which I do appreciate.
