4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium gold with a fluffy one finger white head. Really great head retention and awesome lacing leaving a nearly unbroken wall down the side of the glass.
Aroma is full of tropical fruit as is typical with Lagunitas. Lots of pineapple, tangerine, and mango with just a hint of bready malt and alcohol underneath. Not extremely complex but the citrus is very mouth watering.
A very juicy tropical fruit character on the taste that carries for a very long time. Tons of tangerine, mango, orange, and pineapple all backed up by a little bit of alcohol and bread. Bitterness is fairly mild for a double IPA and is just enough to balance out the sweetness. Mouthfeel is really perfect without any of the residual sugar all too often found in this style.
Overall, a really amazing IIPA. Extremely drinkable it feels more like 5% abv. Love the tropical, almost minty, hop character and the moderate bitterness. Definitely one to stock up on this time of year and one of the best from Lagunitas.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
32oz bottle for $6.99. Pours a clear dark gold with a decent fluffy white head. Aroma is straight up pine/floral hops. Taste is hop forward with a bit of a malt backbone. Dry, bitter finish with a bit of a kick from the alcohol. Big, thick mouthfeel. If you were to call this an imperial IPA, I would not disagree with you. Once again, Lagunitas delivers a kick ass ale for a very reasonable price.

Drucken på flaska. Orange, lite grumlig med fin krona. Luktar torkad frukt, apelsin och bröd. Smakar fantastiskt gott, härlig humle med fin maltsmak. Lättdrucken, men ändå trevligt sällskap hela kvällen.
