Beautiful clear, golden color with a nice head. Tropical fruit aroma with some pine. Taste isn’t amazing, but very nice, good bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy burnt orange with a small amount of off white head. Nose is really fresh tropical fruit. Pineapple, mango, passionfruit. Flavor is more of the noses fruits, a bit of grain and biscuit in the mid palate, with a spicy, slightly piney finish. At 8.2% you’d expect something pretty heavy but it remains pretty drinkable. Great.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is copper-amber with a modest off-white head that fades into a ring. The aroma has a nice biscuit malt character merging with the floral hop character. The best of both worlds perhaps? The hope tend to be a bit more forward. Light to medium body. The taste has a nice balance of malts and floral hops and a lingering biting bitterness. I wouldn’t go so far as to describe it as a Double IPA like RB does but it does have a fine hop quality to it.

12oz bottle to my dogfish IPA glass. Hoppy wood and pine dominated hops. Touch of bitterness. A bit watery body. This is a pretty good IPA.

Amber pour, nice head. Citrusy aroma. Nice hoppy flavor with some sweet maltiness. A solid DIPA. I like what Lagunitas has to offer here.
