3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer starts with an aroma of grass clippings and pine. It pours a clear amber, with a thick white head and good lacing. The taste is of a strong malt beginning, with a pine and bitter finish. It does have a fairly heavy palate for an IPA, but it fits well with the style. One that just recently became available in my area, and a good recommendation for a session ale.

Hazy orange color with small white head. Aroma is grapefruity, citrusy, piney. Taste is following that: citrus fruits and pines, the bitter bite is not too harsh. Easily drinkable. Good classic IPA.

Light amber pour with a fairly non descript bitter aroma. Mainly a bittering IPA with a little passion fruit flavor coming through in a very smooth body. Good!

Finally got around to trying this on tap at Garret 700 yen half and 1100 yen regular. A brilliant copper color with a fruity hop bouquet. Med-light bodied with a soft mouthfeel. The taste is citrusy pine a bit dank with some balancing crackery sweet malts. Very solid.

DID YOU NOTISE LAGUNITA’S HOOCH MAKERS DO NOT DO THEY’RE OWN HOPS! TRY THIS IPA OR EVEN THEY’RE DUBEL IPA AND THEN TASTE PLINY (ITS THE PERFECT BEER SEVEN YEARS IN A ROW!) AND YOU NOW THE DIFFERENSE. LAGUNITA’S IPA IS NO HOPPY AND, ITS PROBLY 97 IBU WICH, IS JUST NOT ENOUGH IF YOU PUT IPA (INDIAN PALE ALE) ON THE LABEL. MAKES ME THINK LIKE WATER OR LITE BEER OR SESSHIONS. PLINY (200++ IBU) IS MEANING OF IPA AND SO FAR OTHER BREWERYS DONT GET IT. THEY ARE SCARED OF SPEND TO MUCH $$ ON DO THEY’RE OWN HOPS.

Bottle. Orange malt and grassy orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange/lime malt and moderately bitter lime/grapefruit peel flavor. Nice blending and body. I guess it’s a waste of time to say that this is a great IPA and probably the best you can get without a hassle.

330ml bottle. Nose is deep fruit, sweet grapefruit, orange, pineapple and some sappy pine notes. Taste follows but with impressively solid malts entering the equation. Dense syrupy fruits with heavy caramel notes. Great mouth feel, medium to full body. Drying but not crazy bitter finish with sweet fruit lingering on. Great stuff.
