Nice IPA. Balanced, but towards the bitter end of IPAs -- which I expect from Lagunitas! Nice floral and citrus notes. Is deep in flavor. Recommended.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Pours a clear golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lace.
S - Aroma is full of citrus hops and candied pineapple, grapefruit, and mango, some floral hops, and some sweet caramel malts.
T - Starts off with a strong kick of grapefruit and pineapple hops with some good bitterness and a bit of sweet caramel malts growing from the background. Through the middle, some pine and floral hops come through with some more citrus flavor and bitterness. The finish is a mix of sweet candied tropical and citrus fruits, bitterness, grassy hops, and some sweet malt.
M - Medium bbodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a resiny and fairly dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice big hoppy DIPA with a great hop profile. I really like how strong the candied tropical fruits are.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is hop oils and malt. Flavor is hops, malts, a lot of earthy raw green hops. Might be better than brown shugga. But you still suck. :)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a glowing cider gold with standard white head and gentle white lacing. Aroma is rich of pineapple, passion fruit, pine, and more pineapple. Flavor is awesome pineapple juiciness. Some supporting notes of orange peel with a moderate spruce rush. The finish has a definite hops prominence without going full blown sting, complemented by loads of pineapple juice and orange peel. Fucken hell this is good!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a smallish beige head. A very pleasant and pungent aroma with juicy tangerines, peaches, mangoes, pineapples, zesty citrus rinds, and pine trees at the forefront along with hints of bubblegum and apricots in the background. Goes down relatively medium to full-bodied with just enough crispness. Slightly smooth. A perfect mouthfeel for the style. The taste starts with a bit of caramel and a biscuity malt presence. Lots of juicy tropical citrusy flavors finish off the job. Just a tad piney/resiny. A touch of warming alcohol throughout. Mouthwatering and tongue tingling. I picked up a sixer of this as kind of an afterthought (as I do most Lagunitas) and I ended up extremely surprised. Outstanding!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at the Distillery in Savannah, GA. Holy shit! Beautiful, almost Pilsner looking pour with a two finger pillow white head. I could smell the aroma from about 2 ft away. Pine resin, pine tree, Christmas tree, spruce, douglas fir, you name it....it smelled like pine. Walking through a damned Oregon Pine forest pine. The taste...pine! Great, fairly light IPA taste but the pine and pine bitterness was amazing and fresh. Little cereal and bread. Great carbonation. Finish is pine. Fuck it...probably the best DIPA I’ve ever had. I could drink this until the cows come home. I don’t have any cows so that would be a long time.
