102 IBU. Poured into a tumbler on 06.07.14. A: 1 finger head. See through yellow/amber body. S: Strong grapefruit. Hops dominate the smell. T: Grapefruit and hop resin dominate. Malt and flower are subtle. M: Crisp. O: For the first bottle, the hops were more subdued than I thought that they would be. Sumpin’ Sumpin’ was more hop forward. I’ve had several fresher bottles now and the hops were there in force as they should be. This is an amazing beer.

b79turner (237) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 3, 2015
22oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Caramel color with a fluffy white head. Very floral, hoppy...great stuff. This is my "go to" beer when I can find it.

Sarlacc83 (1084) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from World Market. A: Clearish caramel color with a whispy off-white head. Lacing. N: Pine, onion powder, grass, toffee, cracker, herbs, and Mary Jane. Hint of citrus - grapefruit. T: Hearty helpings of bitterness and sweetness. M: Medium body with prickly carbonation. Alcohol remains anonymous. O: I have never really appreciated the onion flavor of this one. Still don’t, unfortunately. Lagunitas Sucks is soooo much better.

The_Osprey (2397) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Keg at Euston Tap (18/12/14). Hazy dark orange, still, small foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is tangerine orange, resin, floral. Body is medium, slightly foamy, some carbonation. Taste is toffee, drying and floral, vague butter, lemon, musty and light sour, very soft bitterness. This one was let down a lot by being overly resinous, which made it very slow drinking. It took me ages to finish a half. Not as drinkable as others in the style.

Peaches, tangerines, oranges, grapefruit and a funky onion core twang. This beer smells great. Really love the lagunitas yeast culture, you either do or you don't. Hop flavors are unapologetic and big. Lasts and lasts. Amazing craft beer that's potent at the perfect price point ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
