On at tap at Bodega on the patio, a serverís suggestion that was right on the head, served in a pint glass. A lightly clear with good retention and lacing...The aroma is nothing special, pretty light honey a little hops on the back. Easy to drink and tasty.

Pours amber with a nice even head. Notes of citrus hops drive right through the palate from the nose. Hops finish big as the bittering hops certainly make an appearance.

This IPA is smoother than their regular IPA but the hops are still complex. Not as bitter but just as good as is every Lagunitas Brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a Lagunitas pint glass. Color is a citrusy orange with a generous cream colored head. Aroma is primarily hops: citrusy, floral, grassy, with some sweet malts in the background. Flavor matches well with hops in the forefront and some sweet malts in the background. Palate is smooth with only slight hop bitterness Overall a damn good IPA - this is how I like them - plenty of hop flavor without the extreme bitterness. Too many brewers seem to think that IPAís just need to be bitter and donít really need any flavor.

12oz bottle 3/23/11 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-48į in Tulip-Pours a light orangish amber with a big loose white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Taste of the same with more hops and citrus. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and easy to drink. Nice IPA.

Bottle thanks to EZant Via EZ liquors. Pours out a lively carbonated golden/straw color with a small off white head. Aroma is of citrus, pine and some fruity sweetness in there also. Taste is citrus hops, light tropical fruits, smooth, light sweet malts, and a nice bitter finish. Extremely smooth drinking, this is one hell of a session. How come Iíve never had this before?

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2011 Its really like a wheat IPA. It smells amazing with a real juicy hop smell with some sweetness as well. The taste is exploding with juicy hops and ending with a very nice citrus and pine bitter finish that really makes this quite an amazing IPA. The wheat is also detectable in the end that finishes with the hop bitter finish but the hops kind of rule in this one. You canít taste the alcohol at all its masked so well by the sweetness from the wheat malts and hops. Great beer

Bottle. Hazy marigold white thin white head. Nice yeastiness and hops, with some light sweet grapes. Loads of hoppiness thatís soft, grapefruit and citrus, on a very soft light body. Very clever brew, and great drinking. Accessible and tasty, and the abv doesnít come close to registering. Lovely.
