For those mornings when you have to cut right to the chase, this is the one. Sure to blast through just about anything still lingering from the night before, this mouthful of Hops and huge rich Malt has a gaurantee built right into the name!

Cloudy in a slowly swirly mystical golden pour with thin white top. Fruit and malt aromas aren’t my favorite. Wow, though, the flavor is semi-sweet and malty with only a pleasant bitterness of some resin, and a super-clean finish. So balance. Much tasty.

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep golden color with an off white head. Huge hop nose, fresh wet piney, fleshy fruits. Massive hop character in the flavor as well that lends to a rather bitter finish. Regardless, a delicious beer. And love that price tag!

Longtime favorite. Pours gold with tons of clarity and massive, massive head that lingers forever. Piney, spicy, tropical aroma. Taste is lots of bitter balanced with resin and herbs. Finish is very tasty, lots of malt.

Lots of pine and some grapefruit. A bit of caramel in the malt but not enough to horribly distract me. I find this to be a very good value at $3.99 per 650 bomber. Extra point added for value. Rock on Lagunitas.

On tap at the brewery. Clear golden honey color. Small white head. Aroma is lots of tropical fruits, pineapple and mango, very floral. Flavor is dank hops, Floral, and biscuit malt. Super fresh and just really good. Bitter finish.

Single 1 pint, 6 ounce bomber bottle purchased from Liquor Depot, served in a Guinness nonic pint. This ought to be very interesting, at just over 100 IBU. My body is ready... Pours a lightly hazy, yet bright, orange-yellow with some carbonation, and a fluffy, faintly orange head that lingers for a while, leaving generous adornments of lace. Aroma - hops-a-poppin’! Fresh, resinous pine with lots of herbal that reminds me of the spices added to a good primavera pasta (oregano and basil and hyssop/savory/sumac called "za’atar"), along with a strong, spicy hit of the tomato base itself. Citrus and flowery hops follow in behind. Perhaps that tomato aroma is actually the malt? Flavor - hopquake! Initial menthol cooling to the lips and tongue as I sip, then the resinous pine and spicy cooking herbs and spices in generous amounts, followed by citrus...Granville Island’s Stanley Park Windstorm is the only ale that comes close to this level of tree-mendous hopicity. A nice level of bitterness, a thin body, and a dry, reasonably lingering aftertaste - it even makes my lower jaw’s salivary glands ache pleasurably. For a hophead like me, this is wonderful. I’ve heard good things about Lagunitas in general, but the one beer store that carries them regularly is much farther away, so when I saw this on a nearby shelf, it was a no-brainer to pick up, and there’s nothing to regret with this particular impulse buy. Fantastic stuff!

Bottle: Review based on a fresh bottle. Tacky, rich yellow & amber body, highly unfiltered & opaque. Soft white head that relaxes to a small collar quickly. Respectable lacing. Largely pungent hop aroma; sticky, lightly dank, super oily & quite resinous. Grapefruit flesh, pineapple, mango, sticky bitter tangerine, just a touch of toasty malt holding the hops in place. Lovely dankness on the front-end of each sip with a huge alpha oil presence & robust, yet controlled pungency. Stings the senses, but in a good way. Bitter hops balanced by the semi-toasted & lightly sweet malt body with hints of citrus, pine, mango, grapefruit, pear, orange peel, & maybe a hint of caramel sugar. Fairly sticky mouth feel, heavy body. This beer is great when it’s fresh. The problem is finding it fresh nowadays, as it doesn’t exactly fly off the shelves in most places. I’ve had some old bottles that were malty messes, but the fresh ones are fantastic.
