Lemon/lime centennl aroma wafts above the gleaming amber ale with a hug rocky head. Juicy citrus like biting into a slice of grapefruit, slight caramel with no hint of alcohol. Slightly creamy and tingly. This is a gret DIPA and a fine offering from lagunitas.

On tap at Fat Heads in pittsburgh. Hoppy, crisp. Strong pine and citrus. Very drinkable. Would like to spend some more time with this one and do a proper rating. For now: very tasty.

Holy cow now that’s an aroma. Pure tangerine, leafy hops, like sticking your nose in a fresh out of the fields hopback, gorgeous sunset orange color, some serious fresh hops on the tongue duking it out with a nice non-cloying sweetness. Exactly how a IIPA should be; rivals Dogfish 90 minute.

marcus (6787) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 23, 2007
On tap at Toronado. This copper ale poured with a nice white head, eliciting a hoppy aroma. There is a sweet malty start and a bitter dry finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Poured a hazy orange amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet with fruity and caramel malt notes. Orange with a light citrus (stronger as it warms) hop character mixes in. The citrusy hops start with some strength in the flavor and last past the malt. But then grapefruit rind bitterness starts and grows through a long mostly dry finish.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Several pints on tap at The Graduate in Davis, CA. Tons of aromatic mandarin orange citrus hop aroma with some grapefruits and mangoes present as well. A little sugary and amazingly aromatic. Transparent copper body with a small-medium off-white head. Citrus, fruity, burst to start. Grapefruit and orange flavors are noted. Plenty of resiny hop bitterness in the middle with more juicy hop flavors present in the end. Nice stuff.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2007
22 oz bottle. Poured a clear orange color. Head was two fingers high and off white. There was some decent lace left behind on the glass at then end. Aroma was of big malty caramel, apricot, and grapefruity hops. Mild to moderate hop bitterness and delicate sweetness on the tongue. Tasted of cotton candy, caramel, toffee, butter, and grapefruity hops.

Poured amber with fluffy off white head. Aroma of pine and hops. Strong hops flavor with some pine and citrus hints.

TheEpeeist (3401) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2007
22 oz bottle. Clear orange with a white head. Pineapple, pine and mango make for an inviting nose. Soft carb with a medium body; just short of syrupy. Tropical fruits continue with caramel and lemon peel. What makes this interesting are the undertones of apple, pear and some funk. Juicy finish; not particularly dry/bitter considering the hop presence.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Papsoe] Average creamy beige head that was quickly goon. Good lacework. Light cloudy orange color. Heavy hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, pine, elderflower, citrus and mix of other floral notes. Some malty base sweet notes with caramel and fruit as well. Full bodied with a dry texture and lively carbonation. Moderated bitter flavor with some sweet notes. Dry and bitter finish.15-08-2007
