Pours with a medium sized, foamy, white head over a slightly hazed golden body. Head leaves good lace. Aroma is full of dank, fresh and chewy PNW hops (Cascade if I had to guess). Smells like fresh hop flowers with a bit of caramel sweetness behind. Taste is herbal and citrusy with very fresh hops, caramel, clean and refreshing. Low lingering bitterness and a nice caramel, sweet finish. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side with lively carbonation. Refreshing and good IPA that is dry hoped within an inch of its life...Great!

Pours out clear gold with lots of creamy head. Smells sweet and piney. Flavors of citrus and hops with sweet malt. Very drinkable, a little like the Correction ale, very good six-pack beer.

Enjoyed on tap at Fatheads in a pub glass. The beer pours a bright to medium yellow, with a small and quickly disappearing white head. Huge notes of pine needles come across the nose, almost as if only one very strong hop varietal was used in the beer for all purposes of bittering, taste, and aroma. Very nice. The palate is bright with assertive and piney hop bitterness, but lacks a strong enough malt backbone for true greatness. Overall, a wonderfully powerful, refreshing, and PINEY summer beer.

12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear golden color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is sweet toasted malt, floral and light citrus hops, and a touch of fruity esters. Nice! Flavor is basically the same. Nice finish. Medium body. A very nice IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2011 TAP: light orange pour, medium head. Sweet, floral, citrus hops, some grapefruit, maybe a little biscuit in there - well balanced, very good beer. A very solid anytime, go-to beer to keep around - easy to drink, but interesting enough to keep even us beer snobs entertained. This is just another example of Lagunitas doing what Lagunitas does - cranking out the good stuff.

Oh sweet release! Light orange tinged color with a small 3/32" head. Yes, Iím and engineer. It settles to a film, but the carbonation is strong enough to hold the film. The aroma will tempt you,make you smile, and leave you with pure bliss without even taking a sip. Itís an incredibly smooth and inviting hop bouquet, with a little ripeness and full bodied charater to it. The taste is almost as good as the smell. Its flowery, smooth, and grateful. Pleasures you like a session ale. Full bodied and flavored mouthfeel,, but comes across as light. Here we are again... are you listening budlight? Lacing looks better than your grandmotherís best handiwork. Finish is half strength of the hop bouquet on the onset. Itís perfect in at least 3 ways. This beer will definitely take your headache away. Hot damn!
