3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear, light amber with a light carbonation. Moderate white head, settles quickly. Aroma is nice balance of resin, apricot, grapefruit. Follows into the flavor with resin taking a more dominate role balanced on a good malt structure. Medium body with a spicy hop kick and lingering finish. Balance and the aromatic nuances make it a very drinkable beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap pour - golden with a small white head. Aroma is very nice and enticing - loads of tropical, fruity hops, hint of caramelized malt, mild breadiness...some pine in there as well - good stuff! Flavor is very good as well - good hop bitterness without being overwhelming - tropical hops dominate, but there is a good piney/forest note as well. Enough malt backbone for a ’single’ IPA to add some balance - I really dug this stuff! Palate is oily and smooth. Lagunitas does it right with this simple, yet delicious (and relatively cheap) IPA - Prosit!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bottle. Pours golden with a thin head. Nice aromas of resiny hops and sweet malt. Nice hope bite that counters the fruitiness of the malt. Not overly sweet. Dry finish. Medium mouthfeel. This is a crisp IPA balanced very nicely--not syrupy...not a hop bomb....just right. Delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Glowing orange. Sweet candied citrus aroma. The taste adds candied tangerine and orange with bitter grapefruit on the finish. Just enough malt to add a touch of caramel/ bread but the juicy sugary fruits really shine on this one. A bit sticky mouthfeel with high carb. Love this. Lagunitas knows hops!
