I love this IPA! Smells like a bag of weed! The hop infusion keeps the hop profile super fresh and aromatic. Laces the glass nicely. Small pillowed head. Tastes nice and strong on the palate. I treat myself this one pretty often! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2384) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2014
At just on cool and into a snifter. Superbly bright, translucent to the point of seeing fine print on paper across the room. Orange and sunny. Head is sudsy and loose and lasts as longs as it needs. Peachy, piney, hugely resinous and sappy nose; bounds with inklings of plump guava, grapefruit, marmalade, citronella gel, honey and urinal cakes (?). Quenching, parching and assertively bitter. Herbaceous and deeply resinous like the nose. Medium light bodied and quite lively and effervescent. Honeyish, sweet, fruit nectar upfront with low malt and a bready, doughy base. Pouty, plump, dry back end with ample tropical and pale stonefruit. Length is of burnt rubber, pine needles, grapefruit and bitter weeds. It definitely redefines the palate. Whilst supercharged it does soften and cleanse. A little too much of a good thing though. One was enough!! (65cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

DocJitsu (908) - Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a one-finger, off-white head. Earthy, piny, and citrus hop nose. Full, wet mouthfeel with some hop heat and a fade of carbonation burn. Feels nice. There’s a peculiar, toasty and fresh pumpkiny flavor that underlies the pine and citrus hops.

reberiii (323) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Terrific smelling. Pine and grapefruit. It’s thin, a bit too thin for me, but definitely in line with the style. The hop punch isn’t as strong on the tongue as it is on the nose.

Maxbier (209) - Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2014
dark golden pour with nice white head. Aroma is slight pine hop, mostly grapefruit apricot hop aroma. Wonderful grapefruit-ey hoppy bitterness all the way through, just enough alcohol and malt to balance the experience. Long bitter juicy finish. Great DIPA.

Brentv (338) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap. Pours a dark yellow with a white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is citrus. Taste is a delicious malty body with lots of citrus and fruity hops. Nice bitterness, but not overpowering. A big beer. Lovely.

This beer is delicious. Although I believe it could use even more hops. Still a very tasty and enjoyable brew!

Mindwarp (46) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle - Pours a nice gold color with a citrusy piney aroma. Big thick white head that sticks around. Flavor is faint but has a hint of citrus and maybe a little pine. Little bitter aftertaste but also faint. Overall not a bad beer but not a whole lot going on in this bottle, but what there is, is good. Easy to drink.

chicagobears (414) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours clean and golden into snifter. Aroma of sweet pine and citrus. Flavor is is very dry and piney. It is not balanced so much with the sweetness but I tend to like it that way. High quality ale at a more than reasonable price. Lagunitas always delivers the goods.

gkeh (194) - Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Pours a clear orange/honey mixture with a fantastic head and superb lacing. Aroma is straight up hops. Pine needles, grass, grapefruit, lemon, orange zest, tons of onion/garlic character, super dank! Taste follows the aroma nicely, except there’s a bready malt presence in the taste that is absent in the aroma. Super dry finish, sticky mouthfeel. Why am I not surprised that Lagunitas makes a Imperial IPA that rivals the best of the best? What a great beer.
