The Brü Revü – Lagunitas IPA
Lagunitas is a great California brewery that is widely available in Austin and most of their 22oz bombers are about 5 bucks so it’s easy to give them a try. The IPA came from as recent Bums meeting that featured Lagunitas beers and this was my return to the beer after that tasting. This was a really good, if not great, west coast IPA that poured a nice amber color with a thin white head. The aroma was fruity and floral with a good citrusy hop flavor followed by a bit of the caramel malt to balance. While not an overpowering IPA, the tastes are more subtle but easily drinkable and refreshing. I am a big fan of the Lagunitas beers and their IPA would be a good one to keep on hand.
