A surprise find at a local beer store. Picked it up on a whim and I’m glad I did. I cannot say I’ve ever tasted a better beer. Wow!!! Nuff said!!!!

Pours deep amber orange w/a small off wite head that disipates quickly. To the nose it has nice sweet floral hops, pine and some citrus. First taste is sweet hops, some honey undernotes and a hop bite that then lingers on the palate. I’m giving this one a 5! It is all that you can ask for from and imperial IPA. I love it, job well done. Cheers!

22oz bottle. I love this beer! I pour it up really cold, let it sit for a few seconds smelling the aroma as the head melts away, then I savor every last drop. Aaaaaaahhh Its in my TOP 5.

Absolutely everything you want in an imperial IPA. And a big enough bottle to enjoy, too!

A great IPA with an amber color and a white head. has a grapefruit citrus and floral aroma to it. There is also hints of caramel, pine and possibly an apricot taste to it. Definitely full bodied and not bitter at all.

Love this beer. It’s one of my all time favorites. It clearly has enough hops and malty sweetness to give this beer true character. Stand out to me above so many great ipa’s/double. Try to find a better beer for this price. We only get bottles but i have had on draft a couple of times and still can’t get enough. Waiting for the release of Little Sumpin’ Stoopid this summer.

My overall favorite - I just wish that I could get it in a normal size without actually having to go all the way to Petaluma. This is NOT a guzzle it down beer.

I love this beer. I drink it more than any other beer, and I drink a lot of good beer. It has a great hop aroma, and an awesome hop foreword taste that almost outdoes the aroma. The transparency of this beer is also awesome, hinting to the great light body of this beer which won?t weigh you down. It?s by far the thinnest 8% beer I?ve had which makes it surprisingly sessionable. It also doesn?t completely wreck your palate like other beers this hoppy which is another plus. It?s also like the best deal in beer far cheaper than other beers in its class(about $5 I?m MD). It?s year round availability is another great plus. Its year round availability is another great plus. My final note, which made me sit and write my first review, is that this beer somehow still tastes great when it?s flat. Lagunitas did everything right here in my book.
