Pours with little head, very light color with more than average carbonation. Strong citrus undertones, does not bite you back. Great starter for a long night.

Vighals (1325) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2014
Lys brun klar med lavt tykt skum. Masse humle, sydhavsfrukter, ananas, grapefrukt og lett karamellukt. Bittersøt smak som forventet. Humle, lett karamell og fruktsødme ligger bak. Bitterheten sitter lenge. Medium kullsyre.

How some ratings disappear, I’ll nver know. This is Aptly named in that is very similar, just slightly stronger and therefore slightly sweeter than the original. Good stuff.

Garlic_of_Doom (483) - SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle. Amber with a non retaining white head. Aroma has lots of caramel, cookie dough, pine and citrus. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, quite heavy and resinous. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth with a crispy finish. Not that long bitter finish as many other but at 64 IBU, that’s totally understandable.
Solid DIPA from Lagunitas, they never seem to fail my taste buds!

fantti (722) - FINLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Kaatuu snifteriin kullankeltaisena ja hieman sameana, noin kolmen sormen kestävän vaahtokukan suojaamana, joka jättää upeaa pitsiä. Tuoksussa ensimmäisenä tulee vahva greippisyys, jonka alla muhii karamellimainen runko syventäen aromia. Hieman puuta ja trooppista hedelmäisyyttäkin löytyy taustalta. Maku alkaa makemapana trooppisena hedelmäisyytenä (ananasta?), jonka jälkeen karamelli koittaa tulla pintaan, mutta greippi ottaa lopuksi yliotteen ja jää suuhun lievän puumaisuuden kanssa. Suutuntuma on sopivan katkera ja hieman makea karamellin ansiosta, mutta kuivuu kuitenkin loppuun. Upea DIPA, nyt on runko ja humalointi hyvässä tasapainossa. Greippisyys on mukavan puhdasta ja lähes jopa hapanta, ja maut vaihtelevat hyvin juodessa.

scotchzombie (359) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Pours clear light orange gold with a bitchin' lumpy, foamy, leggy head of off-white. Aroma is candy caramel malts. Taste flips to the hop side - pine, intense grapefruit (especially on the back side) - on a decent caramel malty backbone. Ample bitterness. Juicy!

Nik925 (759) - USA - NOV 15, 2014
Just had Lagunitas Born Yesterday, and really wish this was a second bottle of that. This isn’t bad. Overly bitter for the amount of hops on board. A finely crafted beer. but flavor is dominated by bitter and the taste follows suit. I never advocate for malt sweetness, but this could handle it. It really needs a little summore hops after the boil. Missing the brightness and tasty flavors that late hoping brings.

jbruner (2424) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Minimal notes, on tap at Trappeze, Athens, GA. For a big beer it was easy to drink, gold color with fluffy white head. Aroma is the nice resinous hop blend of Lagunitas, with hints of sweet malt, taste follows.

ThreeCats (592) - ISRAEL - NOV 15, 2014
Clear gold with a big foamy head. Aroma flowery and piney. Taste balanced and fairly sweet, but with a nice bitter bite. Alcohol present. Fuller body. This would be too heavy for a lawnmower beer, but as a "autumn seasonal" to sit on the porch and watch the leaves changing color, this is just about right.

hangunder (260) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Smells quite nice, grapey, oniony hops with a sweet malt and spicy note nose. Fairly clear golden color with a quickly fading white head. Nice, if not overly complex flavor. Upfront oniony hops, finishes with a sweet malt and building bitterness. Clean and simple flavors, but quite well balanced and hides it’s alcohol well. Sharp, clean double IPA. Medium/light bodied and average carbonation.
