Lagunitas IPA ....

Today I will have the India Pale Ale from Lagunitas Brewing Company.  6.2% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.

This IPA poured with a small to medium, bone colored head.  Beer color is a darker golden yellow; not quite into the amber range.  There is some fine sediment moving around in the glass.  The aroma has some sweet citrus, but not overpowering.  I would say more lemons and oranges.  Maybe a little pine.  The taste is more of the same.  You get some citrus nicely balanced with the malt, then a little pine builds on your tongue.  Medium bodied.  Slight bitter aftertaste - just enough to let you know you had an IPA.  This is a very balanced, tasty India Pale Ale.
