A clear dark amber to red beer with a small offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is great juicy fruity hops. Citrus, strawberry, grape. A bit piney. Touch of alcohol heat. Flavor is quite hop bitter, but there’s some nice malt backbone to it - caramel and roasty notes, without any cloying sweetness. Finish is bitter. Chewy mouthfeel. I am a fan. Sort of a dark DIPA, or an extra hoppy BW.

22oz reddish beer. This offering from Lagunitas smelled like sugar and hops. This beer is extremely drinkable... even before I noticed the 9.9%, I knew that this was going down quickly. Most of the flavor is the sweet malt. It reminds me of a double bag from Long Trail, only this one has more hops and more complexity. The finish is nutty and there is no alcohol flavor even as it warms up a little. This was the best Lagunitas that I have had.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Light amber hue, murky clarity with mostly lasting fizzy off-white head. Good lacing. Strong citrus, floral, booze, light fruit aromas. Heavy bitter citrus and floral tastes up front with a heavy booze and citrus finish. Watery texture on the palate with a light-medium body. Solid beer.

Excellent beer, balanced to perfection, tasty and drinkable. It deserves a quiet tasting, little sipd to appreciate the many nuances it has. Very great.

It pours a nice amber/medium amber color to it. Oh!...My!!!...God! Hoppy as hell! I love it! Piny/Floral hoppy notes to it as well as grapefruity/fruity notes. This beer is hoppy, hoppy, hoppy and even more hoppy! Piny/floral hop taste. Thick/syrupy malty taste. Amazing! The after taste is a bit fruity. Which is great!

Pretty good beer; the second I've had from this brewery. Loved the IPA(more than this). The malt profile was a little much; to the point where this seemed like a light barley-wine(but not light in ABV).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep red cloudy pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet with strong notes of malt, caramel and alcohol, slight notes of grapefruit and brown sugar. The flavor is also sweet with notes of caramel and grapefruit, leading to a very bitter grapefruity finish with a strong hop finish.
