Purchased @ Jim’s Bottleworks in Hickory,MD.Really nice IIPA or beer in general. Definitley reminiscent of 3 Floyd’s Gumball head a little in the aroma.Delicious Fresh hops in the aroma and flavor.Citrus heaven.Very smooth with hops blasting lightly like a quick firework that isn’t all that it you thought it should be, but is so damn enjoyable.Dry finish. Really great work esp considering the hop extract and all.Great price!

Light red-copper pour with a white head. Hoppy aroma, hoppy taste, hoppy goodness. Light pepper aftertaste goes good with hoppy mouthfeel. Crazy lacing on the glass. People on here have said this is a good beer, I agree.

pintbypint (2976) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2009
650ml brown bottle. Golden colour, clear. Airy white head, some big soapy bubbles. Good retention and decent spotty lacing. Resiny hop aroma, big grapefruit, sweet orange and pine. Sweetish malt below big citrus hops in the mouth, noticable orange notes. Finish is long, citric, pithy, grapefruity, sticky. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Nicely drinkable, well rounded IIPA.

pineypower (2754) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2009
Pours out a light copper/golden color with a two finger white head. Aroma is of citrus hops, biscuity malt, earth and maybe a slight fruitiness. Taste is citrus hops, but for clocking in around 100 IBU I was looking for a little more of a bitter punch. The hoppiness fades into some sweet fruits, biscuit and rounds itself out with a dry finish. At this IBU this was extremely drinkable and for the price wouldn’t make a bad session....hummm there is a thought.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 30, 2009
My favorite Lagunitas beer to date! quite a surprisingly good beer. Stays "lighter" and crisp while still packing in a high ibu punch. Easy drinking for a DIPA and loaded w/ flavor. I dig this a lot. And a great price at $5. Sign me up.

BrownDogBeer (50) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2009
22 oz bottle. Poured a golden amber, with a solid head. Aroma of citrus and hops with a little something woody. Good body with a decent hop profile and good overall balance. Not as bitter of hoppy as i was lead on to believe by the descitption. still overall a very good beer.

Alcohoarder (34) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2009
22 oz bottle. Bright orange with hint of red. Floral and citrus on nose. Not overly bitter, hops are well integrated. Solid beer. There is some mention about hop extract being used on the bottle. Not sure how I feel about that. I guess, if it’s good, who cares?

Dorwart (2451) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2009
About a 1 inch thick head of fine and dense bubbles. Light carbonation. FANTASTIC aroma loaded with mandarin oranges, pineapple and all things citrus. Absolutely amazing! I just want to start drinking this brew. Color is a nice clear dark orange. A little bit frothy in the mouth. Slightly sweet malts, lots of hops bitterness, more citrus fruit and some bready malts. With claiming over 100 IBU’s I expected this brew to be bitter beyond belief and more similar to a Stone Ruination ale. This is very drinkable and goes down super easy! It is not leaving a dry pasty feeling in the mouth like some other IIPA’s. Light alcohol presence. Finishes a bit on the malty side with some lingering bitterness and dryness. A very, VERY good IIPA, that is super easy to drink and very affodable for the quality.

thegreenrooster (3566) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2009
Pour is a orange with a large white head. Aroma is a nice effervecent hop with some cirtrusy goodness. Flavor is an abundance of fresh hops with a little sweetness at then end. This is very good and easy to drink. Gets extra points for being affordable like all of this brewers beers.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma: Lovely, juicy, fruity and hoppy. Notes of exotic fruits, fruit flavored candy, citrus, clementines. Taste: Hoppy, sweet, a bit salty, citrus fruits, exotic fruits, candy, rather malty, some alcohol. A bit heavy maybe. Bordering to double IPA territory.
