One of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had - Lagunitas IPA serves as one of the standard bearers for West Coast IPA’s. Great hop aroma starts you off, with a nice hoppy/malt balance and mouthfeel all the way through, with a nice hoppy finish. A definite add to your IPA repertoire obscurename (9) - - MAY 18, 2014 does not count
I absolutely love this IPA. Perfect amount of hoppiness for my palate, crisp, refreshing and readily available. Definitely a favorite. SilverfoX (871) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
smells of oranges and grass, nice orange amber colour, sweet and bitter at the same time with grapefruit and orange flavours, excellent stuff Dacrza (979) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: August 8, 2014... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... OCCASION: Camp summer #4 ends; no job for Shan though... APPEARANCE: orange amber body; diminishing, bubbly white head that leas beautifully arching lacing; strong cirrus swaths... AROMA: robust peach and pine cone--orange, melon, pineapple--grainy, demanding malts make this an intense, cagey meeting... PALATE: full-bodied, warming and thick--aggressive on the teeth and tongue; dry enough to slow sips; versatile ... TASTE: evenly balanced; with an intense hop bomb accompanying every sip; the intense pine comb produces ripples of orange, tangerine and mango and repercussions of the most palatably bitter ale ... OVERALL: in a three-way battle with Prism and Heavy Seas for roommate get-together IPA supremacy, Lagunitas asserts a dominant character--an irrepressible combination of drinkability and enjoyability...no doubt one of the best IPAs I have ever had...

Comes out of the tap a dark, hazy, honey-golden with a fine-bubbled beige head. Aroma is richly hoppy, somewhat evergreen, promising a good IPA. Strongly evergreen flavor is richly hoppy, quite bitter but not overwhelmingly so, and subtly sweet; it gives the impression of drinking a pine tree - what a great IPA does! Texture is rich, lively and somewhat smooth. A must for anyone who loves hoppy beers.

on tap at Lagunitas. Golden, slight head that lingered. Lots of citrus, especially grapefruit or pomelo. Pine resin. malt, bit of caramel. Very tasty. adambcarrier (12) - Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Not a fan of IPAs at all; this one redeemed them for me. Orange color is nice. Thin head. Bitter citrus. Everything was balanced wonderfully. A great beer. ronjustron (22) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2011
A great American IPA. I was thoroughly surprised by it’s taste. In a good way that is. I would certainly recommend this to anyone that would want to drink it. Malaclemys (464) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Citrus, malt, and slight fruit aroma. Great citrus and resin hops. Very nice malt backbone. Well balanced all the way through. Great IPA MattOnBass (9) - Newport News, Alabama, USA - OCT 4, 2014 does not count
Citrus, with an almost lemon scent on the nose. Light copper or dark golden in color with an off-white head. Excellent head retention for the style. Lovely, bitter hop flavor that showcases several hop varieties. It has pleasant body and carbonation level. Overall, this is an excellent IPA.
