Draft. Dank and hoppy the aroma is. The appearance is a clear burnt golden with a creamy, white head. The taste starts hoppy an stays that way through out. A little citrus twist takes place in the middle then a spiciness hits the tongue at the end. Pretty nice. Palate is bitter hoppy with a hint of the lagunitas dank. Overall, a good beer. Will prolly order again.

Poured from a bottle. Found this one left over from a 4 pack in my basement. It’s well past it’s prime, but drank some fresh ones back in the day, but never rated - so some of this will have to be from memory. Pours hazy orange/gold amber with foamy off-white head; disipates to a thin cap and leaves some splotchy lacing. Aroma is hoppy, but also filled with caramel malt. Also a nice dose of honey and tropical fruit. Taste is moderately sweet followed by mild bitterness (I recalled this being more bitey when fresh). Nice smooth beer with medium body and some tingly carbonation. Enjoyable beer; I look forward to getting some fresh ones this year.

A great IPA that’s released during Imperial Porter time! As always another great beer from Lagunitas! Aroma comes off very hoppy and smooth with a very refreshing taste.....a good beer to finish off a hard days work!

Tap. Pint glass. Light gold with big frothy white head. Hoppy resin aroma. A bit of grapefruit taste, then oily and resin. Crisp with long lasting dry finish. Very lagunitas and very good. Does not suck.

Pretty good. This does not suck. Not the Brown Shugga, but a different type of good.
Hoppy, piney aroma and taste. Clear yellow. Small white head.

Grapefruit and pine aroma. Pours a cloudy honey gold with a thick white head that fades relatively quickly leaving lots of lacing. Graefruit. Pretty sweet. Mouth coating. Hard candy like texture. Very smooth. I thought this was going to be really bitter but it's not. It's very smooth.

Received, pleasingly unexpected, in a trade with BMoosey. Bottle poured into my IPA glass. Nice clear golden pour with amazing aroma. Flavor is very nice more malt driven than I expected. Very nice beer would like more please.

Translucent bright golden pour with a thick white head. Resin, floral, and spruce along with cereal malt and citrus undertones. Crisp, light-bodied, lively carbonation, clean bitter finish. Would want a higher abv to call this an American Strong Ale, closer to an IPA

Bottle to glass mug. Pours a slightly amber yellow with an off white head. Awesome nose of pine and citrus, grapefruit. Delicious hop bite. Deceptively strong, because it’s so smooth.

Beautiful beer. Big aroma of tropical fruit; peach, passion fruit, grape, ananas... Hoppy flavor; bready, but foremost fruity, filled with tropical tastes. Well-balanced, where initial sweetness is evened out by a modest bitterness in the aftertaste.
