Definitely in my top 3 IPAs. Pours amber with a 2 finger head. Plenty of lacing. Lots of floral hop aroma, huge malt backbone with tons of hops too balance it out. My kind of IPA.

Pours a rich golden color with average head. Big nose of citrus, juicy hops, dank, and tropical fruit. Rich, smooth palate of hops, slightly sticky, citrus, orange peel, and slight booze. Excellent balance of malt and hops. This will get you buzzed quick. Choice.

This is one of my favorite IPA's because of the the strong floral hoppy notes combined with the sweet, malty finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The smell was the first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle. Very strong, very alcoholic. The head was pretty big, though I admit my glass was not up to par. The taste is clearly hoppy, but I get a large, yet not overwhelming sweet caramel malt flavor.
Delicious, I think sweeter than last year’s.

The head is medium, the body golden and cloudy. It smells sweet-sugary, bit fruity. Taste is sweet, bit bitter, sugary, interesting. Ok, but in my opinion to much sugar. 11/10/9/9/12/9

Growler provided by jredmond at the 4th of July tasting. Pours clearish orange amber with a small white head. Aromas of sweet candy and tropical fruits with a dose of juicy hops. Taste is floral, fruity, sweet and slightly bitter.

Lagunitas beers are unbelievable. Once again they have made me super happy with this delicious double ipa. Closer to a single but don't let that stop you. Do whatever you can to get this beer. I have and always will. Very rare and should be because this beer is sooooo good!

Thios is a great beer! There is just the right balance to give it an even body. Malt white fruits, pineaple on the tongue. Finishes crisp, sharp and cleanly bitter at the end.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 fl.oz.-bottle - schön oragene Farbe, würzig-süßlicher Antrunk. Der Hauptteil ist von der malzigen Süße dominiert, der Hopfen harmoniert recht gut. Leicht alkoholisch-scharf. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, süßlich-klebrig, leicht herb-frisch.
--> geht so. Zu süß und zu wenig andere Aromen spürbar. Sehr langweilig!

On tap. Pours a clear very gold with a thinner eggshell head of larger bubbles that laces quite nicely. Nose involves a healthy amount of pine resin, dry grapefruit, honey, floral perfume, and biscuit malt notes. Pretty sweet in flavor, but quite bitter. Medium bodied, oily, dry, with a long toasty piney bitter finish. A nice, enjoyable brew, pretty easy to drink for its size.
