4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2010 22-oz bottle. Prominent hop nose, the majority caramel with pine, some still-bright citrus. Some fresh-bready notes as well as apricot. Clear, gradient golden-orange-amber body with consistent carbonation and a meringue, rocky, awesomely spoonable off-white head. Taste is very dry and strong in bitterness, but not as aggressive as some other IPAs, no resin or harshness, never would have guessed 100+ IBU. Honey and very light hay, no hint of alcohol. Apricot again, faint tangerine. Soft, smooth creamy notes and some residual malt sweetness, a little bit of a wild tang and some non-standard pale ale yeast notes. Mouthfeel is just super velvety, medium-full body. The IBU’s show themselves in the aftertaste as the bitterness hunkers down and gets nasty. A great drinking experience and a very pleasant surprise! I already admire Lagunitas for the terrific quality/price ration in their products. This brew is a standout in the lineup. Very good!

Tropical fruit and pine resin in the aroma. Lots of fruity bitterness in the flavor, but with some underlying malt sweetness. Spicy, fruity, bittersweet finish. Great double IPA.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (70:-). Fruktig och humlig, bra maltighet, citrus, grapefrukt, ganska söt, bra beska, medelfyllig. Lång och besk avslutning.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at Pub Republic. Pours a pale amber color with a bit of head. Intense hoppiness with some floral flavors. But easy going despite the high hop intensity.

Pours a beautiful clear copper color with gorgeous lacing. Smells floral, more like rose. Tastes of rose water as well with a bitter lemony finish.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really nice. Floral, citrusy, pungent, and bitter. Slightly malty, though, and finishes sweet instead of dry. But, overall, really good DIPA.
