On tap at Guru Burger in Sugar Land. Bright clear orange with a substantially lacing off-white head. Intensely tropical aroma of mango and other tropical fruit with caramel, citrus, and dank. Taste is richly sweet yet still quite bitter, and pretty boozy. Medium-full bodied and slightly dry. Very good.

Waldos. Big IPA. Oniony garlicky, big bitter, pulls your cheeks in. It does have some juicy qualities to it as it warms, but that’s the open of the sip, the bitter crushes at the end.

Bottle at commonshawn’s homestead. Served in a curved pint glass. Aroma is heavied up on pine with a dank, citrus quality. Attractive golden orange leaning towards copper color. Taste is very interesting. Definitely working with a healthy hoppy pine characteristic and an assertive alcohol hit. Plenty of sugary elements. Strong bite towards the end with a lingering almost tingling sensation. Sticky mouthfeel with plenty of resin. This one stays with you for a long time after the sip wraps up. Where is Waldo? He’s found in my belly after drinking this way too fast.

I was really looking forward to trying this and was able to pick up a case. Pours a clear golden orange with little head. Aroma is fruit and pine with some subtle malt sweetness. Taste is predominantly pine with some tropical flavors and a little bitterness that lingers. The word dank would apply here. Full bodied. This is much better cold because as it warms the alcohol becomes very apparent and the taste is borderline cloying to me. I really don’t understand the high ratings on this one and I am a Lagunitas fan. I only have two left from the case and can’t say I will be disappointed once I have finished. I also didn’t enjoy Green Flash Green Bullet which many others enjoyed so maybe Triple IPAs are not for me.

Bottle. Hazy orange-gold, creamy white head. Massive hop presence here, wow! The aroma is like distilled hop oils, very pungent. Oily hoppy body, thickly resinous with over-ripe tropical fruits, sweet caramel malts in support, bordering on sticky. Crushing bitter finish. This is a punch to the face with a fist full of hops! Intense.
