220z. Bottle: Clear copper color with a cream colored head and sticky lacing. Aromas of pine needles, grass & junipers. Powerful bitter, hoppy taste of graprfruit rinds. Thick and smooth body with average carbonation. It leaves a nice bitter aftertaste lingering for sometime. Delicious.

22oz bottle. Rich amber color and long lasting head. A little piney on the tongue and quite hoppy on the aroma but certainly not as bitter as one would expect from an IIPA

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured an amber-orange color with a small head and minimal lacing. The aroma was light pines with some citrus and grapefruit aromas. The flavor was of mild alcohol, dominated by citrus and some grapefruit hoppy flavors. Light pine hops underneath. The mouthfeel was moderate with light carbonation. A nice beer. Re-rated in 3/3, no changes.

bottle. frothy, tawny head that laced nicely. really good color and appearance, more orange than anything else. Very hoppy, with molassess/horseblancket taste that gradually transformed to a slightly too medicinal sourness. Over all a great and complex beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Resin and grapefruit aroma (and malt). Gold tending towards reddish amber (top to bottom under halogen), maybe a ruby hint towards the bottom. Medium feel, malt to start, moving to hops, to grapefruit, to hops. Grapefruit noticeable at the finish. Swish and itís chewable. Swish and an apricot component appears. And itís 78 ibu. Nicely astringent when all is done. Pine in the burp. Really, really, great.

A great double IPA from Lagunitas! I really enjoyed the immense hoppiness from this beer, the hoppiness contributed to my happiness, you could say. Found it well-balanced, aromatic, yet did not remove the enamel from my teeth, I am pleased to report. All things considered, an enjoyable beer that should not to be followed by something tamer, such as a regular IPA...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours a rich, dark copper color with an ivory head. Good hoppy aroma with notes on grapefruit, grass and oranges. Nice malt balance to blend with a good hoppiness. More grassy notes as well as tons of grapefruit and lemon flavors. Dry, bitter finish. This beer is a bit tame by most west-coast IIPA standards but itís still a fantastic beer.

Sessionable Imperial. Strong grapefruit and pine nose. big malt heavy bottom that is almost chewable itís so dense. but it has to be, to hold itís own against the huge PNW hop bite. Quite easy to drink over and over again.
