Pours a dark copper color with mahogany edges and a one finger, frothy off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Glass is left coated with streaks of soapy lacing. Looks great! Dank floral hop aroma with a decent balance of tropical fruit, earthy grass and sweet malt. Malt presence is a bit stronger than expected with lots of caramel and toffee sweetness along with some dark fruit and cracker. Full bodied and surprisignly malty for the style. Again, there is a lot of caramel sweetness along with fig, vinous fruit and biscuit. The strong malt character takes away from the hops too much for my liking. Also, the hop profile is kind of one dimensional with dry bitterness lingering throughout. Needs some sweetness to cut through. All dry, earthy bitterness with prominent grass and pine needle flavors. Lacks balance and complexity. A rare miss from Lagunitas.

Really nice DIPA that has a great hop bouquet and follow through. Thick and high alcohol. Yummy but i hate to see that Keineken lable next to Lagunitas.

PorterPounder (6523) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl. Brass Tap - on tap. Dark amber pour, initial foamy off-white head. Spearmint, apricot fruitiness, some spruce in the resiny aroma. Solid, robust flavor with juicy citrus notes, plenty of sticky caramel sweetness, some pomegranate fruitiness. Some nutty notes in the back end. Thick, rich sticky mouthfeel. Very solid, Lagunitas always delivers.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2015
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, listed at 11.1% ABV
Hazy amber color with Cooper hue, compact head. The hops are fruity bit also a bit candyish, not too aromatic; the body is lean but the beer is somehow chewy; moderate sweetness; loads of piney hops; in the final apparently the malt sticks more than the hop. Nice alcohol warmth, and tickling hop resins.
Good malty beer. Old style IIPA.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Poured up on tap at K n B Wine Cellars where it exhibits a clear copper body that supports a tall light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up an inviting blend of dank onion like spicy hop, some mango and then an apple-y sort of cherry fruitiness spicy woodiness. The taste delivers bold yet restrained resiny hop bitterness where there’s ample quantities of pink grapefruit, pine hops and loads of spicy dank onions. Yummy. Terrific iipa where it’s bold and brash and a bit boozy and just slightly restrained. Solid to style offering.

Rusty dark with a medium head and lacing. In your face hop aroma and a grapefruit hop taste. A little earthy but I think that’s the double IPA talking. Medium body with a resin mouthfeel. Pretty good.
