Lagunitas IPA is an American style IPA. No bottle date on the bottle or label, so I am going in blind on freshness with this west coast IPA.
Pours with a beautifully perfect golden color, hard for me to imagine a better example of a prettier beer. The aroma is so-so for me, some muted hops and grainy malt is all that I’m getting. The taste brings some caramel malt sweetness to start, followed by some medium citrus and strong pine hop flavor. Lingering bitterness is a constant, but never overpowering.
By no mean my preferred IPA taste profile, but this is a solid beer all around. Super easy to drink, and it’s hard to beat the quality at this price point.
