kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2009
22 oz bottle via Hagen. Pours a clear copper with a huge off white head. Nose is strong with notes of toffee and mango. Taste is sweet iced tea, toffee, biscuits, pineapple, mango and some earthy piny hops. Body is full, this is a bit syrupy. Carbonation is medium. Pretty tasty but more a barleywine than an IIPA as it is very malt-driven.

BeerBunker (930) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours orangish with a frothy white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, pine, and biscuit. Taste is of sweet, juicy hops. There is also a sharp bitter, hop burn as well. Lots of citrus grass. Has a bready malt backbone. Lingering piney hop taste. Has a sharp alcohol bite that doesn’t take away from it. Mouthfeel is medium and soapy. Body is moderately carbonated. It goes down real easy, and it warms you up as well. I enjoyed it.

Benzai (10067) - 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.

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!

12 oz bottle pours a faint orange color, off white head. Very nice clean, crisp brew, typical of Lagunitas. Tasty and delicious.

Christpuncher (1951) - 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 (449) - 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.
