Citrusy nose with nice hoppy aromas. Nice mouthfeel with a good hoppy flavors of citrus, grapefruit, grass, resin and herbs. Lovin it! :)

Big Bottle. Poured a clear medium amber. Creamy, light-khaki colored thin head stayed around for some time. Excellent carbonation. Aroma was of hops, plain and simple. Tase was hoppy with a very, very light, almost nonexistent hint of malt. Aftertaste was also very pleasant. Definitely a repeat buy.

22 oz poured into pint glass. Pours a clear dark golden color with white head. Aromas are pine hops. Hop presence strong but well balanced with a nice sweet malt. Mouthfeel is medium heavy which is perfect. Alcohol is warming but not overpowering by any means. Easy drinkability.

This beer is exactly what they said. If you have had the Lagunitas IPA before, then this is pretty much a hoppier version of the same beer. It’s malty and sweet, and dangerously drinkable for 8.5%. The hops and malt are pretty evenly matched. The malt finally gives way to the a slightly bitter hops finish. The heavy malt presence reminded me of the Hop Devil.

Very nice deep hop aroma, quickly fading head, orangish - copper pour...not too floral, not overly hoppy - nice delicate balance and delicious.

Well rounded DIPA and one that I would drink again. Very bold with lots of citrus and hops. Smooth and easy to drink for the ABV.

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

Dang, this is a bitter beer. Wonderful hoppiness and clarity. See through it like a window. The amount of alcohol is great when you want to get a buzz off only a couple of drinks. Great lacing, carbonation bite, and smooth finish with great taste. Had a big bottle a while ago, now picked up a 6 pack- Same as before if not better. Top notch IPA- I only wish I could figure out the recipe so I can make a clone. A hop head delight.
