Clear amber with a three finger high, white head. A lot of lacing on the glass. Nose: Hops, citrus, pine, apricot, pineapple and caramel malt. Taste: Floral, hops, citrus, pine, caramel and grapefruit. Medium bitterness and a litle carbonation. Great beer! So soft an easy drinking. Love it!

Shark_Pants (303) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2015
Great amber colour with persistent head. Huge inviting floral nose, with some citrus and sweet malty notes too. After such good first impressions, the taste isn’t a disappointment either. Great balance between sweet and bitter. Initial strong honey malt sweetness, lots of floral notes, then smoothly transitions to a nice citrus bitterness and finishes dry. Excellent.

Bov (9876) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 21, 2015
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - gusher ... light hazy bronze beer with a moderate foam left; solid hoppy aroma, resiney and fruity (tangerines, peaches); moderate carbonation and full-bodied; a strong but not aggressive bitterness, light residual sweetness and long notes of fruity and piney hops

Banksiz (39) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Wonderful citrus-flowery nose with some alcohol warmth and a touch of spruciness. Bitter, with a backing of sweetness. Medium-rich body. Nice bitter finish. Doesn’t have the full complexity and noble hop flavor to make it an all-time great, but an excellent double IPA.

renffisch (849) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Half at the Euston tap. Heavenly cold steely hop nose. Dark amber clear nectar. Smooth white head. Sweet heavy mouthfeel. Fruity, strong, bitter and sweet! Can I have a bathtub full of this PLEASE!!

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.

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
