Unfiltered, orange appearance with lacy white head. Citrus hop aroma with medium bitterness. Light body with average carbonation and a bitter finish. Very good 2X IPA

Benzai (9995) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle [from trade with jtclockwork] @ home. Clear almost golden color, medium to full sized decently lasting white head. Aroma is lightly malts, hops, quite fruity with a hint of passion fruit and mango. Taste some malts, hops, again quite sweet with plenty of sweetish fruity influences like passion fruit and mango. Lightly bitter in the finish, but mainly sweetish hops. Slightly sticky texture, medium body, quite soft carbonation. It could have used a bit more piney and resinous hops imo, but still a solid IIPA.

jflopsu (827) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Pours a clear orange-copper with light white head. Has a strong floral hop and fruit aroma. A strong taste of citrus, pine, floral, hops, light spices and some yeast. A lingering bitter hop and dry yeast aftertaste.

pablo951 (508) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Had it out of a bottle. Pours a clear amber hue with a heavy grainy wheat aroma, nice. Thick as thighs malt, hop union. Heavy Tango!

mfhennig (135) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2015
12 oz bottle pours a faint orange color, off white head. Very nice clean, crisp brew, typical of Lagunitas. Tasty and delicious.

Christpuncher (1938) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Super citruscy and hippy double ipa. Sort of sweet and nectarine flavored. Pours a nice copper color out of a 12 oz Bottle. Slightly boozy.

ChiGuy68 (448) - Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear copper hue with a lasting, frothy beige head that left rings of lacing. Fruity apricot and pineapple nose with an approachable, smooth slightly sweet, grapefruit-hop taste and a slightly bitter finish. Mmmmmmm. That’s a tasty number I will return to frequently!

A very good tasting beer. May not be a classic DIPA but a great beer to drink.

Zymurgeist2 (1280) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 23, 2015
On tap at Stein’s in Mountain View. Pours a hazy yellow with full white head. Moderate tropical and lemon, with balanced mouthfeel from the wheat. Refresher for this alcohol.

ACHops (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2015
22 oz bomber, served in a tulip. Pours bright deep orange with thin lacy cream-colored head. Aroma is sweet, slightly nutty caramel malt with medium piney earthy hops on the back. Taste is thick, syrupy sweet caramel malt; hops are big with strong pine and dark citrus notes, cutting the sweetness nicely. This bottle is a bit old, probably muting the hops a bit. More clearly a DIPA than Sumpin Sumpin or Sumpin Wild. Solid beer, even when aged too long.
