Everything I like about an IPA. Hoppy, citrus notes and easy to drink. This could easily be a session beer.

Bottle: pours clear deep golden, bright white one finger head. Lots of carbonation. Distinct Lagunitas yeast, sweet malts, citrus and fresh pine on the nose. Flavors of mint, spruce hops, subtle caramel malts and quite milky smooth on the palate. Mint, grapefruit dryness with bitterness on the finish. Quite good

Pours a clear golden amber with a loose off-white head. The nose is of citric and piny hops over a solid biscuity malt backing. Medium-bodied and slightly grainy with a moderately bitter, lingering, resinous finish. The flavor is a big hit of citric hop notes (grapefruit, orange and star fruit) with a sweet, caramel malt backbone maintaining a sweet counterbalance into a lingering hop bitterness. A touch of pine joins the citrus notes in the finish and aftertaste. This is a big IPA that almost pushes into IIPA territory. Mattlax20 (5) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2013 does not count
Clean, crisp, and refreshing . Nice balance of citrus and hops. neither flavor is overwhelming. Would make a great summer beer. Would definitely buy again.

Slightly hazy amber beer, little white head. Smooth silky palate, semi dry. Very sweet piney hops with a caramel malt backbone. Light dry finish. Something of an odd beer from this great brewer, The sweet pine is a bit cloying. Certainly drinkable but not up to usual Lagunitas standards.
This beer was not enjoyable. It has a very piney taste, and is pretty unrelenting. I wouldn't recommend purchasing this.

Slight wet dog on aroma. Definitely no wheat notes, this is all IPA. Feels a bit heavy, but not boozy. Slight spearmint flavor. Great fresh hoppiness. Ktwse (5677) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2013
Pours hazy orange with thick white head. Aroma is heavy resin and pine with strong caramel malt cues. Some citrus and floral notes. Taste is bitter from the start but with a balancing sweetness. Long, pungent bitter finish. Oily, thick palate, low carbonation. Great beer.

Pours thin clear golden yellow with decent white head. May have some age as the aroma had hints of dry hop only, bubble gum, citrus. Flavor is slight sweet malt, fruity hops up front with lasting bitterness in the finish. Fairly crisp body. Refreshing and the abv not noticeable. Good ipa. thomat (4209) - Gï¿½teborg, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2013
Golden with a small white head. Fruity and hoppy notes. Fruit, malt and bitterness. Medium to full body with a long bitter after taste.
