Well I’ve liked what I’ve tried from Lagunitas before, so here we go with their IPA.
I find this to be an enjoyable beer. Not outstanding to look at, but pretty much what you’d expect from the style. It’s earthy and hoppy, with lots of citrus and some floral notes. I find myself continually sniffing the glass because it smells good! Tastes good too, very enjoyable. The earthiness kind of stands out, but I’m not sure if this is from the hops or the malts. I’d say it does taste a little “muddy,” but while I usually don’t enjoy this as a descriptor, in this case it’s probably related to what I’m calling “earthiness.” The website page indicates “Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts…” so maybe that explains it. Who knows. Either way, it’s an enjoyable beer and I’m glad I have a few more left from my sixer!
