Poured from a bomber Aroma - very tropical aroma. Appearance - clear golden color with plenty of bubbles. Taste - easy going down. Hides the 8% very well. Definitely feel the bitter in this beer. Palate- very good lingering taste. Overall - pretty obvious why this beer is rated so high. Another Lagunitas fantastic beer.

Had a bomber of this, well chilled, pours a light golden color with not too much head. Nose is light, first taste is nice with some grapefruit type hints but you can tell it's an IPA. No heavy aftertaste, not bitter, 8% ABV, lists 1021 IBU, a nice beer to go along with a burger ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thome50 (987) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle after helping yet another friend move places. Pours a light orange to yellow with moderate white head. Aroma is huge pine, dank and floral hops. Taste is totally balanced between, in order of more importance, hoppy/bitter/sweet. Not insanely sweet at all and just a great beer. Holy crap, for $4 /22oz bottle. Get it when fresh!

22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, amber in color, white foamy head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts and hops (pine, resin). Taste is sweet and malty balanced with some hoppiness, very clean finish. Great beer enjoying the heck out of it.

Very hoppy aroma and something else I cannot place. Light golden in color with a good white head. Malty, a bit of mint, bitter. Good beer

bomber into La Petite Tulipe - Grabbed myself a bomber of cold DIPA! and I’ll be feeling just fine. Nothing quite like sitting around the house, swilling them bottles of not wine! Nose is down right hoppy as in fresh. Sip reminds me of Alpha King but not as minty. Damned bitter. repressing the urge to mention paint thinner but not succeeding. Malty backbone only on the nose. The esophagus is screaming, "This is an Alpha King!"

NIce clean grapefruit smell. Nice and orangey coppery color. Tastes great. It’s bitter but perfectly balanced.Very nice and smooth. So light and soft. Everything is balanced just perfect! A really great beer. Is this the perfect IPA?

jookos (1927) - FINLAND - JUN 14, 2014
.65 bottle@kittys. Golden clear. Strong hoppy nose, pines, caramels, grapfruity greens. Med full body. Well bittered, not that subtly. Pine, some resins in finish. Real nice lagunitas. But... .. nothing too different from their normal dipas. Real nice, good us caramelly, hoppy bitter dipa, but was hoping for more.

Pours a hazy golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, caramel, toffee, citrus and hops. Taste is medium to high sweet leading to a nicely balanced hoppy finish. Great stuff.
