3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A solid IPA, but not as hoppy and bitter as I prefer. Surprisingly, at 6.2% ABV (according to my 6-pack), it tastes more like a session brew than a more full-bodied IPA. Pours a light golden color with a thin head that does stick around a while. I would buy again, but not if I’m in the mood for a really robust IPA.

Very smooth IPA. Immediate taste of crisp hops. Perfect amount of head from pouring into glass.

I absolutely love this IPA. Perfect amount of hoppiness for my palate, crisp, refreshing and readily available. Definitely a favorite.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pour at Ginger Hop. Light golden. Plenty of citrus on the nose with a nice complement of pine hops. Taste of grapefruit. Not bitter. A perfect blend of hop and tropical citrus notes. Refreshing and easy to drink. Probably one of the best standard IPAs going right now. Lagunitas knows what they’re doing.

Bottle. Clear golden pour with small lasting head leaving ample lacing. Nice citrus and pine resign hop in the aroma. The pine needles get to the tongue first followed by a nice amount of grapefruit flavor. Good balanced beer with lots of hop flavor and bitterness in the finish. Was great after a run.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold with very slight hints of citrus and pine. A little sweetness with a medium body, with a light bitter finish. Not a bad IPA, but not a stand out either.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours translucent gold. Aromas are surprisingly sweet, hints of citrus and pine. The bitter hops are complimented by subtle taste of grapefruit. Not bad and easily drinkable.

Good IPA, well balanced. Nothing objectionable, but other beers bring more to the table.
