4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ll take this over Brown shugga anyday. Pours gold with a slight orange tinge. White foam covers the beer’s surface. Big citrus aromas dominate with a hefty pine scent as well. There are also grainy aromas of caramel. The flavor follows suit. Big citrus and pine resin. The complexity of the malt selection really makes itself apparent. The rye and wheat make a small but welcome apppearance and the oats lend to a wonderful body. I hope this is brewed again. It is a top knotch double ipa.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2014 The aroma wasnt very strong some piney hops and tropical fruits but had to really work my nose since the beer was actually to cold. The taste though was an amazing explosion of grapefruit, piney hops some citrus and orange peel also lots of hops on this one. The mouthfeel had a very nice carbonation. Overall an amazing brew easy to drink very hoppy with mild bitterness I loved it.

Awesome ale. This is probably the best smelling beer I have had. Tasted very good. I would buy this regularly if it was available.

12oz bottle pour. hits the glass a beautiful orange color with solid off white head. BIG citrus hop aroma, so fresh! sweet pineapple and piney as well. you’re hit with an intense citrus flavor, reminiscent of grapefruit from the first taste. bitter on the finish with a nice ’lil alcohol kick. some sick lacing on the glass and good head retention throughout the glass! great stuff!

Smells of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is mainly pine and citrus hops, little malt taste. Has somewhat soapy mouthfeel and dry dandelion aftertaste. Overall pretty average brew, nuthin worth buying again

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours light amber with a huge foamy white head. Tons of bright citrusy hops, with a smooth pine aroma. A bit of onion in there as well, but in a good way. Real light pale malt--the hops are king here. Taste brings more onion and some garlic--along with a bit of pine and a little firmer, sweeter malt. Tastes like a DIPA--it’s intense and focuses on the hops. Very nice.

A: Clear pale coppery yellow in color, minimal head. Thin film across the surface and a small ring around the edges.
S: Huge pineapple aroma. Piney and hoppy with a hint of alcohol. Very nice! Intoxicating almost.
T: Taste follows the nose, lots of fruity pineapple flavor, hoppy, piney and a nice sweet fruity malt backbone. DAMN the fruity pineapply flavors are ridiculous!
M: Medium carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, sweet, smooth finish.
O: Lagunitas sucks just plain ROCKS. This DIPA is amazing. I want more.
