Had this on tap and from many, many bottles. OK, I don’t know why they have this labeled as a strong ale, as it is a double IPA. Pours clear amber with a white head. Nose is of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is a delicious mix of grapefruit, tangerine and tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is creamy with a nice bitter hop bite. I love this brew so much and the fact that it is only about $10 per six-pack doesn’t hurt a bit. I kept searching and buying this while it was in stock. Drank cases of this stuff. Would love for this to be a regular in their lineup instead of just a seasonal.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Specific Gravity, Salisbury Md-Golden/orange pour w/a foamy white head. Aroma of pine hops. Strong pine needle hop flavor, w/some sugary sap, citrus, rye, yeast, & roasted malt. With this much going on, it had the potential to be a cluttered mess (like their Brown Shugga IMHO) but they were able to pull this off. Nice winter saesonal, enjoyable, maybe the lower alcohol made It easier to drink, but this was a good, solid brew.

Pours a clear, but lightly hazy orange. Thin white head. Aroma is very floral and citrus filled. Flavor offers a nice balance. As much as they do suck, this is a nice beer!

Glass: Mason jar
From: Ciro’s Pizza
Misc.: As part of Lagunitas Tap Takeover Night at Ciro’s Pizza; Got to keep the Lagunitas mason jar
Poured a golden orange color with one finger of white head when I got it. Good circular lacing on the sides all the way down. Average-to-above average retention on the top.
Holy bitter hops on the nose! Got healthy doses of pine, citrus (grapefruit, lemon) and floral hops. Also some resin. Very flavorful, definitely the best part of the beer.
Tasted bitter grapefruit hops right from the beginning, but not too lingering. Sweet floral taste as well. Also orange pulp. Reminded me a lot of the Daytime IPA.
Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.
I really, really liked this beer. Nice and smooth and would love to have it again. Well done Lagunitas.

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.
