Thanks kiefdog for the share. This is an enjoyable IIPA. Pours clear amber with a white head. Nose is malt, citrus, floral, and pine hops, and caramel. Tart citrus and assertive pine hops meet flavor at the mouth. Caramel follows the hops and tart grapefruit finishes it off and lingers somewhat. Enjoyable medium-bodied beer.

Pours a bright copper color with a citrus and pine nose. Flavor is more citrus hops, with a slight sweetness. Very good IPA.

Bottle. Pours a clear, light copper color with a nice, lacing head. Nice, powerful aroma, with some citrusy and floral hops in the aroma. Smooth, hopsy taste. Goes down really well considering the ABV. Nice finish. Not dry, but you can taste the kick. This beer is a classic example as to why I love Lagunitas.

Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Best bang for your buck. Poured copper with a white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and candy. Sweet hop bite that wasn’t overpowering. Wet finish.

padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Bottle purchased at Beverages 4 Less in Santee. Hops with a sweet/sour grapefruit flavor. Pucker up bitter, with lots of nice aromas. Much nicer as it warmed. Very good.

Its $3.99 for a reason...not an elite DIPA, but quite possibly the best priced beer to be found. 22 oz. bomber, purchased at a mini-mart in Vancouver, Washington, of all places. Hop Aroma and Flavor are fantastic. Too watery and not enough malt to balance. For all my criticism, I returned and purchased the remaining six bombers in the cooler...

0o9i (438) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Bomber. 7.7% ABV and 102 IBU’s for the record. Pours a crystal-clear, honey-colored body topped with an average, persistent head that is off-white and laces in thick rings and sheets. An amazing aroma of hops! Extremely quaffable. Very floral with hints of peach, citrus, and honey. Medium body with soft carbonation, fairly wet until warmed a bit. Heavily floral, with honey, lots of peach-apricot, grapefruit-rind, orange, some pine. Long, pleasantly bitter finish is assertively, pleasingly strong and introduced gently. More of a "big" IPA than what we get from many 2IPA’s nowadays on account of the lighter body and absence of a powerful (although fully sufficient) malt profile. Dry, refreshing, and unique for being an in-between. A must have for the dedicated hop-head.

Golden to amber in color. Moderate head diminishes to a thin lid of off-white bubbles. Big citric aroma. HInts of alcohol as well. Scents are dominated by grapefruit and zest, there may be a hint of caramel and honey in the background, but its a minor player. Immediate grapefruit juice bit on the tongue. A little orange zest follows. Caramel works itself in slowly and the malt finally shows up near the finish along with a bit of orange blossom honey. Some pine sap gains strength throughout the quaff and is coating the palate in the linger. The feel is a bit too biting at times. A truly hops forward brew. There are enough malt notes to help me stay interested in the hop monster.

Trev (1956) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Pours orange gold with a medium head. Aroma is delicious grapefruit citrus and light caramel/honey. Strong bitter flavour, pine in front. Hints of caramalt. slight sticky alc presence in the finish. Excellent value!

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 Think I was smokin’ crack when I had this the first time...it has become a staple. Clear 24-karat pour produces a 2-inch ivory fluff with significan spider-like webbing. Think and sticky...Black Widow-like. Aroma is grapefruit pith, orange peel, tangerine rind, lemon zest, Pinesol, sap, and honey. Flavor is bright and full of citrus accompanied by evergreen and a touch of caramel. Incredible mouthfeel that leaves an impression on the palate. How was I not impressed with this beer @ $3.99/bomber!!! Again, crack head? Great beer...get some!
