Nice crisp and fruity IPA with a sweet floral nose and nice body. A graprefruit citrus backing it against the malt and strong hopping. Good stuff.

Pours a clear orange/pinkish color body with a clingy, white foam on top. Aroma was sweet citrus and piney hops. It seems that all of the hop flavors are balancing each other out. You get about a half of a second of every flavor associated with hops. Never enough of any to really make me jump but all around a very well/over balanced ipa. Great session brew!

pretty good, piney aroma golden color with white frothy head. Flavor was hoppy but not over bitter. Its only draw back was that it seemed somewhat watered down it did not have a fullness on the tounge.

12 oz bottle. Pours a medium orange with little head. Intense floral aroma with heavy doses of citrus fruit as well. Nice malty backbone that finishes like I just ate a piece of grapefruit. Terrific mouthfeel. Good IPA.

"Life is uncertain. Donít sip" it says on the label. What a lovely philosophy! The beer itself is very similar to the other lagunitas that Iíve had. Not a lot of carbonation. Itís a pleasant, only slightly bitter IPA. No revolution.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2005 [bottle] Pours great, smells great, and has a nice hop profile as well. Iíd like to see some more sweetness to back the already present bitterness in the brew. Itís good, but Iíll take the Maximus.
