On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Does a perfect beer exist? I guess it's subjective, but I will say that this may be the single best beer I have had in my (admittedly brief) time as a hardcore beer drinker, and will be the basis on which I compare all other IPAs moving forward. I expected to have this reaction to Nugget Nectar when I cracked one of them open (picked up a 6 pack so that will happen later this week), so this was an amazingly pleasant surprise.

Ar: Juicy orange, pineapple - a bit of resin and lemon.
Ap: Golden-amber, clear - medium off-white head with moderate-good retention and a thin but solid cap of lacing.
T: Bright and bitter orange up front, pineapple - medium bitterness - moss and tangerine - lightly toasty malt sweetness with an edge of toasted caramel - hoppy finish with some lingering clean bitterness .
P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is medium-dry.
O: Nice beer, really seems like a big IPA - good hop flavor, which is quite assertive, and pleasant fully malt profile. canes89 (31) - New York, USA - JAN 22, 2013
can’t believe I waited so long ( this will hold me a few weeks ’til Nugget Nectar & hopefully hopslam)

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 12 oz bottle from Bevmo. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma is moderate in strength with sweet oranges, tangerines and spicy grains. The flavor is a big blast of ripe hoppy citrus fruits--mostly oranges, but also some lemons--with bready malts filling in the sides and back. The palate is full and a bit oily with lively carbonation. The finish long and bitter. Overall: Top shelf SuIIy (1984) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a white head. Nose is dank hops with grass and sweet resiny notes. Palate is smooth up front with a nice bitter finish and a sticky tongue. Flavors of resiny and piney hops, golden cereal malts.

Clear, orange-pink pout, head dissipates quickly except along the side of the glass. Grapefruit and peach in the aroma. Flavor is a concentration of the aroma (initial peach/grapefruit, followed by grapefruit bitterness), and crisp. GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Golden pour with a white head. Aroma is fruty hops/mango. Taste is fruity hops, malty backbone, nicely balanced. Another tasty beer from Lagunitas. Leaves a pleasant aftertaste. knickskicks (1168) - - JAN 19, 2013
