Amber beauty with a soft quickly dissipating big bubble one-finger head. Rich hops aroma with a touch of warm brown sugar smell in there - no fuel smell despite a nice heat-rich 8+ abv. Rich hoppy flavor without a ton of IBU smack in the mouth. I’m tasting it right now next to Dogfish 90, and it’s less bitter than DF90 as well as richer in flavor. I’m overall very pleased with this double IPA as it’s got notes of pine, sugar, oak, and honey in the mouth. The finish is much smoother than most IPA’s and this beer has made my top 20 for sure.

Really good IPA, but its no hop stoopid. A little too astringent though I like the resinous hoppiness.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bärnstensfärg med vit krona som sjunker lite väl snabbt. Doften är liten för en lagunitas, men det doftar av grape, citron och jäst. Smaken är fyllig med tilltagen beska. Eftersmaken är beska som överlever länge. En riktigt bra öl som smakar på lagunitas vis.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0.335/SB. Copper clear. Floral, citrus grapefruity with green grapes, thick caramel on nose. Full bodied, nicely bittered. Some caramel sweetness, but not overpowering nor too thick. Piney stuff, earthy flavours. Pretty good dipa. It’s been a while since I’ve had one that’s not overly thick barley wine- like. Refreshing, tasty.

Orange /gold pour with a slightly soapy head. Citrus and malt - nothing too complicated on the nose. More malty than expected in taste (based on the aroma) with nice bitter orange notes. Dry, a little sweetness, very lightly carbonated

Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a clear burnt orange color with little head and no lacing. Aroma was citrusy malt. Taste was very smooth, with a good mouth feel. For a high ABV brew very smooth, Lagunitas never disappoints!

Clear dark golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of hops, citrus, grass, biscuits and some malt. Also some notes of alcohol. The finish was bitter and fairly dry. Drinkable but not as tasty as expected, I wonder how old the bottle was?

Bottle at beertemple. Pours clear golden with a lacy white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, caramel, grapefruit and very earthy. Taste is quite bitter and moderate sweet. Full bodied with average carbonation. I expected more hoppiness but still very good.
