3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 US.fl.oz. bomber poured into a pint glass...
Appearance - Light amber body, with a very rich creamy beige head. Great head retention and amazing lacing! Looks very good for an American IPA!
Smell - The aroma is not very intense, but then again, the bottle I had was fairly old. Grapefruit, oranges, pine, a bit of flowers, and some nice bready notes on the nose.
Taste - The taste starts out with quite a good hop bite, with grapefruit-like bitterness and some pine. Then comes a surprisingly nice mild sweetness. Some caramel, some bread, and some toasted malts are also present. Finishes in a slightly dry and bitter after-taste.
Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium body to it. Low in carbonation. No real hints of alcohol, yet it may give a warming sensation to your body.
Drinkability - Goes down smoothly. For an American IPA, this is a very sessionable beer. Drinkable enough for a beginner hop-head, yet not too light or lacking on flavour.

Poměrně dobrá a výrazná IPA. Trochu méně hořká, než většina evropských, ale jinak chuť, barva, pěna atd. super. Příjemné překvapení. Lahváč v San Franciscu.

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 ŕ la pression. Blond doré, CO2 bien présent. Légčre dans son ensemble, houblon plutôt discret. Correct.

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.
