Bottle. Orange with white head. Hoppy as all get out. Bitter too. A pretty good IIPA.

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.

Pours a murky, unfiltered gold with a white foam head that head that stays on the top of the glass and a decent amount of carbonation, looks good. Smells sweet in hoppy, with some spicy fruit making up the sweetness. Taste actually is lacking on hops and is more malty. Bitter, but also with a sweet and yet spicy cherry flavor. I can taste the alcohol and as well and the boozy taste really is prominent and finishes on the palate. Not so great, but not horrible.

Solid pour, lots of suds, smells fruity. Very fruity and sweet, with a nice hop kick and bitter finish. Tastes similar to other lagunitas ipas, abv not detectable. I think this is solid, basically a souped up abv of their standard IPA but very solid for sure. Not quite a top tier dipa but close.

Almost an imperial ipa. Very hoppy to the point of overwhelming,and I am a hophead. Nice hoppy aroma, not much of a head with little lacing. Probably not one I would return to often.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Julian code bottle date puts this at January 3rd.
Aroma: Wow, lots of aromas packed into this one: Peaches, mango, cherries, floral hops, resin, raisins.
Appearance: amber, clear, very little head that faded quickly. laces glass nicely.
Taste: Medium sweet and medium sour. very little bitter. sour aftertaste
Palate: Medium body and slick/thin texture. Carbonation is average. FInish is sour and hardly bitter. Aftertaste fades quickly.
Overall: Expected more from the flavor because of the amazing aromas. Still very tasty though. Aftertaste is almost non-existent. Feels like its missing something. Definitely can drink this faster than most other 8.4% beers. Will pick this up again in the future. Not as good as the Bells Two Hearted or Hop Stoopid but still enjoyed this one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle to tulip. Pours a hazy amber with a two finger beige head. Smells of bread, caramel, and hops but also slightly sour. Tastes much of the same with the hops more predominant but the sour sweet malts coming through. MF is lighter with soft carbonation. Overall this is a decent DIPA that is definitely worth a try.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter. Pours with a moderate amount of fluffy white head and just a little lacing. Both are less than I thought. Dark gold, just a shade over auburn, color. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Too much carbonation. Aroma is very flowery with some mango. Taste is sweet and flowery. Lots of tropical fruit and some all-spice. Very good beer. Not really an IIPA but bigger than a regular IPA. Very tasty. A good combination and a very drinkable beer!
