paintedmaple (400) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Tap...gorgeous golden pour that really catches the light and welcomes you a hugely complex beer that is also balanced and easy (maybe too easy) drinking. Citrus, pine resin, and some weed predominate. Awesome.

Straw yellow pour from bottle. Terrific fruity aroma. Full flavor from copious hopping. Smooth mouth feel. Well hidden alcohol. For a double IPA it is very drinkable. Citrus, floral, skunky all in a good way.

Bottle at home. Aroma is tropical fruits, apricot, jasmine, honey. Sweet and sticky palate. Tastes of pineapple, grass, pine, with a creamy wheat mouthfeel and a slight acidic twang. Bitter, fruity finish, sticky hop oils, tastes like it was fresh hopped. Alcohol well hidden. Nice.

Bif (1426) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2014
On tap. Served a nice golden color with a good head and ample lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, some fruit sweetness and grass. Taste of Grapefruit, bit of pine, nice fruity sweetness and bit of grain. Good bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp and satisfying. Very well balanced as there is no hint of the 8.5% ABV. Excellent beer well worth checking out.

rbrazell (1634) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Clear deep golden pour with a fluffy white head. Juicy grapefruit, peach, pine and resinous hops nose with a subtle bready malt backbone. Flavor is similar yet incredible balanced while still maintaining generous hops flavor and a lingering bitterness. Nice stuff.

I’m trying to talk myself out of giving this beer a perfect rating, because that seems amateurish IMO, but damnit this IPA is just too good to knock it. It’s a perfect IPA to me! Beautiful honey-orange pour with a white fluffy head, nice lacing, and good retention. Aroma is both sweet tropical fruits and loads of dankness combined, with citrus notes in there as well. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, incredible taste that follows the aroma nicely. A job well done, Lagunitas!
