I have been looking forward to trying this one. A nice pleasant hop aroma with a bit more sweetness than I expected. Just a small head on this one. Starts with some malty sweetness before a very strong bitter kick in the mouth. Not as pine and ctirus as I anticipated. Nice long oily finish. Anther good one from Lagunitas!

Dark copper color with large foamy head on the top. Very slow to dissipate with very heavy lacing. Wonderful pine aroma with hints of honey. Was expecting a bit more defined flavor and hop bitterness but still very enjoyable.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
