3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
For some strange reason this is the first time I’ve ever had this beer. I love Lagunitas for their west coast style IPAs and was expecting their flagship IPA to be of the same quality. This is definitely good, but it’s missing the bright, popping citrus and tropical flavors I’ve come to know this brewery by. Definitely more malty than I am used to, but good in it’s own way, and has a nice hop presence in the background and mild bitterness in the after taste.

Avg IPA, not bad, not great. I usually see Maximus next to it in the cooler for the same price, so choosing this over Maximus is not wise.

Pours a clear golden color with a tame aroma. Hoppy and fruity but just and average IPA.

Bue à la pression. Blond doré, CO2 bien présent. Légère dans son ensemble, houblon plutôt discret. Correct.

.5l on tap @ Vihreä Haltiatar
Pours clear golden with medium high, stiff head. Aroma is hops, fruits, malts, exotic fruits. Some berries. Flavor is hops, malts, herbs, brown sugar notes. Odd side taste. Something like plastic.

Noting impressive about this one. My experience was that it was rather flat right through. This is not a stand-out IPA.

Had on tap at Wayside in Biltmore. Totally solid IPA. Pours just on the orange side of the pale/ipa spectrum with a decent head. Not overly carbonated. Taste is reminiscent of all the good west coast IPA’s in terms of malt and hop profile- pine, resin, citrus, grapefruit.....blah, blah. Well balanced and not too dry on the finish. Just a totally solid IPA. Nothing spectacular but accomplishes what it set out to be in spades- a very enjoyable, sessionable, not-lacking-in-the-flavor department IPA.

Very sweet on the aroma and cloying on the palate. Did not taste right at all for style like a sweet Belgian vs an ipa.
