22 oz bomber. Pours a golden yellow color with a medium fluffy white head. Aroma of west coast pine hops, mango, peach,grapefruit and orange. Taste is similar to the aroma- strong west coast pine flavor with hints of mango, apricot, grapefruit and peach. Excellent overall.

Draught at Belmont Station Biercafe in PDX - Beautiful color like a shiny new penny with a rapidly receding white head. Initial aroma is mostly "catiness" with a hint of grapefruit and herbs. Perfectly crafted body has enough resiny qualities to make the flavors stick without being cloying. In the mouth it presents more catiness and some citrus to help balance out the bready, caramelly malts. Aftertaste lingers on for a few minutes after the swallow and causes the far reaches of my mouth to pucker up in ecstacy.
People may knock Lagunitas for having too many over-hopped pale ales and IPAs , but this one is truly delicious.

From the tap it poured a golden orange color with a nice fluffly white head. The aroma was as you would expect with the big hops knocking you around. I got some citrus fruits like grapefruit and orange in there as well to go with the piney hops. The taste was full on hops with the citrus and grapefruit in the background. It had a nice little sweetness to it from some malts that really added to this one. It was full bodied and finished slightly bitter with some ctirus fruit in there too. This one was really easy drinking for the amount of hops it had, and had a great flavor to go with it. A really good double IPA.

Poured a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, herb, orange rind, floral hops, and light caramel malts. Taste was bitter, with slightly tart citrus, bitter orange peel, light nuts, toffee malts, and a dry, grapefruit finish. Nicely attenuated with low alcohol.

Bottle.Oh My what a great beer. Pours with a great golden to yellow color. Great frothy head,. Fine floral aromas, very complex flavors of floral hops, some malts and citrus and spices. No real alcohol taste, very smooth. One of the best DIPAs I know of.

On draft. Poured a thick-looking deep orange with a moderately thick white head. Strong hop aroma, real floral and almost peppery. Thick palate. The hop taste kicked in after a brief delay in which some malts came through. The hop character was grapefruity and the finish was bitter and peppery, but didn’t stick around for long. A commendable DIPA - nice aroma, decent taste, no real anstringency to speak of.

Pours orange with a medium, frothy white head. Big hop aroma, just attacks you right off of the bat, with a definite little spiciness to it as well. The taste was as i expected as well, big and hoppy. Very sharp taste, and I definitely got a little spice in there too mixed in with the monster hops. Slightly bitter in the finish with some grapefruit citrus making its way through the hops. Very good beer.

Rated 8/3/07. Draft at Redlight Redlight. Courtesy boboski. Oh yeah, this is a good one! Orange-gold color with a small, white, foamy head. Patchy lacing scattered randomly about the glass. Strong, and I do mean STRONG, citrus and piney hop aroma. Extreme pine resin and grapefruit on the nose. Though the hops are powerful, the buttery malts help the aroma to just skirt the thin line between overly hoppy and ideal, landing on the ideal side much to my delight. The flavor follows suit perfectly. There is a massive, almost numbing resinous hoppiness, but it has just enough toffee and buttery malts to make it very, very drinkable. Near perfect palate that is not overly sticky as some Double IPA’s are. Goes down incredibly smooth for such a massively hoppy beer. Awesome IPA! An unforgettable beer.

As my brother would say . . . hoppy as balls. Aroma is SO hoppy, citrus all the way, lots of cascade. Flavor is good, strong citrus but with a nice malt compliment. I dig it.
