Jblauvs (1340) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 21, 2011
On tap in Portsmouth. Golden pour with a filmy white head. Aroma is light floral hops, with some citrus twang. Mouthfeel is nice, crisp. Flavor is sweet floral hop with a bit of resinous bitterness on the finish. Nothing extraordinary, but certainly drinkable and refreshing, a good go to ipa.

Pleasantly surprised by this beer. Expecting what most American IPA ’s that are weak or lighter. The aroma was very weak, as there was no hoppy smell to it, but the taste was a good mix of floral hops and malt with some fruit sweetness. Some hints of lemon and possibly grapefruit. This is a well-balanced IPA; good hop taste but not overwhelming as I would enjoy. It is an easy drinking beer. Still, it is slightly lighter than a true IPA.

The hops and malts were balanced, offering a solid IPA with hints of floral.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2013 Had it on tap at Chs. Beer Works- they ran out of Coast HopArt and replaced tap with this. Really good- malty, hoppy and really well balanced. Good head with staying power. Perfect IPA color that makes your mouth water. Not as spectacular or memorable as the HopStoopid, but would defintely look for it again. had on tap again labor day weekend 2013 at mezzaluna in h’ville. in honour of jennifer’s first trip to west coast. better than I remember- kind of perfectly sweet, malty, hoppy all in one taste. server brought a sample of st. teresa’s pale....not even a fair comparison. lagunitas a solid ipa. one of my favorites for overall balance and drinkability.

Light color, pleasant hoppy aroma. A strong but balanced hop flavor, very refreshing and tasty. Definitely a good session IPA, had a few of these on tap.

On tap at Lagunitas poured a clear golden amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of biscuit, orange, tropical fruit, earthiness, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, orange, pink grapefruit, tropical fruit and light pine with a smooth dry lingering bitter fruity finish.
