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!

A- Pours a crystal clear tangerine hue with a small, off white head that leaves lacing on the way down. S- Smells very sweet, almost all malt with some light floral notes. T- A very malt forward DIPA. A strong wave of light fruits washes over the palate topped off with piney hops that leave a little bit of a bitter taste. M- Thick with lots of carbonation. D- I didnít enjoy this one very much. I feel like this is the prime example of a DIPA being too malt forward.

Bottle. Orange colored pour, white head. Smell is hoppy; grassy, citrus, with a little bit of malts. Thicker, typical west coast style double IPA on the palate. Pretty good beer; perhaps a brewery I need to drink more beers from.

hoppy but not too much for my meager hop inclinations. more of a nice punch than the overwhelming hoppy of most pale ales. light and lively body with a medium citrucy bite. the hops make it a bit bitter but thatís nicely balanced by the light citruc-y.

Strong hops aroma and flavor. Hints of caramel and nuts. Nice clear, golden color with a frothy head. Medium bitter/sweet. Earthy.

Delicious, power punched flavour. The aroma is reminiscent of baked oatmeal cookies.

On tap at mediís. Nice golden color. Citrus and hops on the nose. Very hoppy, not surprisingly. Good beer.

I liked this beer. I matched it against Roscoeís Hop House Pale Ale. You can taste the difference in hops...Lagunitas has got a more pronounced hoppy (bitter I guess) taste. Itís also got more alcohol and I felt it after one bottle. Good stuff.

halfonit (1129) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Pours a rich deep dark orange color with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, malts and spices. Flavor is of sweet malts, touches of spices, and a nice hop flavor throughout.

Bomber thanks to GT2, awesome double ipa, super bitter and hoppy, but what can you expect?
