First of all, this beer is quite the value priced item. Great aroma with pine and resin notes and citrus. Exceptionally clear with a golden orange color. Taste is rich pine and citrus with some subdued sweetness. Bitterness is very smooth.

smroush (156) - Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Aroma dominated by the hops, primarily grapefruit aromas. Some bready malt aromas in the background. Color is a a clear, light amber. Small off-white head. Mild sweetness, strong hop bitterness. Medium body; distinctly crisp on the palate; medium carbonation; long finish with carbonation first, then grapefruit hops and finally a little sweet bready malt. Overall a good IPA. Personally I prefer somewhat more balance from the malt. While this has some malt presence, the hops really dominate.

Pours a clear copper with a head that just keeps growing. Has that really piney aroma that first pulled me in to US IPA’s. It’s a ton of piney hops in the flavour with a delicate bitter finish but it feels a bit watery and oily at the same time.

Strong pine resin aroma. Pours clear effervescent light gold with a thick foamy bright white head that fades very slowly leaving foam on the glass. Soft mouthfeel with strong pine and citrus flavors and a grassy hint. Strong hops bitterness but is better balanced than the aroma would lead one to believe.

Finally managed to get this again after many years.Raw balanced sweet bitter citrus perfume Golden to amber colour. Super big slick rocky off white head. Bitter juniper mega dry on the palate with a measured buzz of acidity. Pretty amazing really.

Pours clear golden amber with a long lasting head. Has that unique Lagunitas aroma. Sweet malt. Lots of earthy, spicy hop aromas. Really nice refreshing, crisp, clean taste. Really prominent malt backbone, hoppy taste, and a nice bitter finish with a little alcohol at the end. Great balance. This drink really comes together and Lagunitas shows us that it really knows how to put a DIPA together without going overboard on hops, sweetness or ABV.
