Poured from a bomber into a regular glass. Pours with a lot of thick but fizzy head, kind of right in the middle of headdyness. Aroma is of pineapple and honey. Mouthfeel is about average thickness for an IIPA. I tend to like them a little lighter but itís not my any means heavy. Carbonation is present but not fizzy. Taste is of pineapple and light citrus. Decent to good IIPA, but I donít know what the fuss is about. If you like pineapple, this is the one for you.

22 oz bottle pours a dark golden with a big white head. Aroma is caramel malt with citrus and piney hops. Flavor is grapefruit, pineapple, and pine hops, and a good bit of caramel malt to try and balance it. In typical Lagunitas fashion this is aimed at hopheads.

Lagunitas comes through again with this delicious double IPA. Floral and farm-like aromas (in a good way) are present in this ale. A great balance of sweet malts and zippy hops assure that this beer will not leave too bitter a finish. This beer is very similar to HopStoopid, but slightly less aggressive. A must try if you can score a bottle of this limited release ale. Iím going back to my local store to grab the last two bottles before someone else gets to them!

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Sampled on draft this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was fairly full of grapefruit and piney hops. The flavor was bitter, tangy and tart with notes of grapefruit, pine and floral hops. Long tart and fruity hoppy finish. Fairly full bodied. Well done.

TheJester (2244) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2010
650 mL bottle. Hazy honey-golden with a thick film of head. Aroma is all hops (first pine, then floral) and caramel. There are hops from start to finish in the flavour as well, although this DIPA is never overly bitter. There is a strong caramel-malt backbone. In fact, this beer is very well-balanced; more if an Imperial Amber. Alcohol is not apparent. Body is quite full. A strong and very drinkable beer.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a smallish white head that recedes to a swirl along the top. Aroma is full of sweet juicy citrus fruits - pineapples, oranges and grapefruits. There is a bit of doughy malts in the nose as well but the fruity hops are the dominant aroma. The taste is dominated by hops as well with the citrus fruits bringing a bitterness up front with some sweet malts underneath. The bitterness is not overdone and itís got a resinous finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and sticky with hop juice. Carbonation is just right for the style. This is a good DIPA thatís very drinkable and showcases the juicy citrus from start to finish.

22 oz. bottle, $4.20 at Samís in Oct. Wow! First thing when I opened it, I got the unmistakable smell of a pineapple upside-down cake! Hazy gold to brown body, and a big spongy head. More citrus hop smell from the poured glass, but pineapple still dominates. Taste is full of, well, Sumpiní Extra, thatís for sure. Big American citrus hops, and malt sweetness. Not from the usual pale ale malts, but between that and pilsener (I see that the Sumpiní Sumpiní has some wheat in it, that must be here, too). Plenty of fresh hop taste, but then the bottle is just a few months old. My IPA tulip glass just concentrates more of that lovely smell whenever I poke my beak into it. A wonderful Impy IPA, and at those great Lagunitas prices!

pours a clear golden color...lively...with a thick and foamy white head. nice retention and lacing...looks great. complex aroma has sweet pineapple at first but also has subtle spiciness and grassiness with light malt backing. flavor is more spicy hops at first but sweet and sticky citrus follows it up. mouthfeel is oily and finish lingers with dry grapefruit. outstanding beer!

A very solid DIPA. Currently comparing this to Hop Stoopid and though the two are very different, both are extremely well-crafted. Much better balanced with a stronger malt profile, but a beautifully done beer. Nice bready malt taste with pine/resin underpinnings really meshes well. Great beer.
