God øl. Dejlig moderat karbo. Rund maltet smag efterfulgt af fyldig bitterhed og alkoholsødme. Ikke så tør igen. Rar øl.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/3/2013. Pours moderately cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, tangerine, orange zest, floral, pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and great strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, floral, light pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity of citrus/floral hop flavors with a moderate malt balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent DIPA! All around great complexity and balance of hop and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on the for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Pours a dark but clear amber. Has a caramel aroma. Taste is fruity with some light hops but not much of a strong or bitter taste.

Nice bitter hop and caramel malt taste. I would enjoy this more on a hit summer day. Good bitter taste and finish.

Sample at a tasting. Light amber body with a low white head. Fruity and floral. Enjoyable, but too thin palate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral and aromatic, with a strong hop presence throughout flavors of rose water, lightly toasted caramel and freshly baked bread. Finishes with a blast of hops that turn a bit metallic as it lingers.

Draught @ The Ginger Man, NYC. Pours hazy amber with stable white head. Bitter, hoppy aroma with notes of grass. Hoppy and citric flavour with malty touches. Mildly bitter aftertaste. OK but not revolutionary.

Nose is nice with good citrusy hop and malt balance. Pour is orangish copper and clear with a nice ivory head. Taste is smooth hop with pine and citrus rind notes. Good malt backbone make this a nice beer. Mouthfeel is medium. Wish they out this in 12 packs in my area. Reminds me of stone ipa. All in all very good

While a lot of lagunitas beers taste similar, this one stands out. A perfect balance of citrusy pine hops and subtle malt backbone. No astringency whatsoever, the bitterness is all flavor.
