Draft sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Great aromas of mango, white grapefruit and guava. Very tropical hoppy in the mouth as well, but with a substantial herbal note too. There’s a lean grain element there too that’s hard to describe, but it definitely provides some balance. Substantial hop bitterness. Nicely done overall.

Pours a clear golden color. Aroma is dank pungent hops. Flavor is more pungent hops with a slightly garlic/onion character. Finishes bone dry with a very smooth bitterness.

A very solid imperial IPA from Lagunitas. Has a large amount of hops and bitterness but it goes down pretty smooth.

Golden with a thick white head. Aroma is piney hops with a bit of resinous sap. Flavor is restrained pine hops with a somewhat sweet malt backbone. Very drinkable.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very clear amber colored pour, lots of bubbles, durable head. The looks remind me of Sierra Nevada Celebration, and that’s a very good start. The smell was highly potent out of the glass at an arm’s length. Very citric hops with a touch of pear, and the intensity is great. I could just smell this beer for a while. The taste another hop assault, as the grapefruit, tangerine, and bitter orange flavors just hit all at once. The malt is not much of a presence here except providing some sticky sweetness. Medium dense and creamy feeling in the mouth. This was a very well crafted DIPA. There is of course no substitute for Brown Shugga, but I hope they keep this one around too. Otherwise they would really suck :)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark straw to very light copper color. Thin white head. Hoppy aroma with a bit of grain/rye. Complex flavor. Can pick up the rye. Crisp. Lots of hop flavor. Bitterness from start to finish but seems to hit different parts of the tongue.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An almost perfect west coast IPA. Crystal clear amber in color, with a sticky white head. Intensely hoppy nose, with a flavor to match. A really amazing example of the style.
