Lagunitas Brewing Company IPA

What the brewers say

Lagunitas IPA was formulated with malt and hops working together to balance it all out on your taste buds so you can knock back more than one without wearing yourself out. Big on the aroma with a hoppy-sweet finish that’ll leave you wantin’ another sip.

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Very unique but subtle hop flavors: white wine, pear, grape juice, light spice/peppery. Some malt sweetness evident. Somewhat restrained hop profile with slight citrus, earthy almost Noble hop character.”

Flavor: “An intense hop juiciness, with white wine, gooseberry, lemon grass, pineapple, melon. Not much malt character—hop flavor is the show! Finish is mostly bitter but balanced, with a slight lingering bitterness.”

Overall: “A wonderfully hoppy beer in the best way. Bitterness is appropriate, though a touch more malt character would be good. Hops are decidedly American with citrus and pine at the forefront. Lacks complexity of some others, but still very tasty.”
