Good to be #10. Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe at 4:20 PM. Board note: "The dankest, hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas. My rate: Pours translucent orange gold with a foamy white head. Huge citrus/floral aroma. Very near full bodied. It’s almost sludgy with hop. Fruit hop. Citrus hop. Maybe some resin. There’s a little sweetness, and I think I detect caramel under all the hop. Bitter like resin, but not the NW version of harshness. Earthy, swampy, fruity, bitter. Extremely hoppy. Very tasty.

brokensail (10955) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 20, 2013
Hazed amber/copper pour with a white head. Sweet caramel, sugar, pineapple, and peach aromas. Grapefruit, pine, flowers, and some brown sugar. Maybe a bit of alcohol. The flavor is a touch boozy, but excellent fruit and hop character. Brown sugar, caramel, pineapple, peach, and nice grapefruit. Mild bitterness, pine, and floral hops.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2012
Served on draft at Beer Run, on 4/20 of course. And the cost? 4.20 of course. And when did they tap it? 4:20 of course. I damn near missed but but made it in time for a friend to share some with me. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color. Aroma of tropical notes, herbal hops and faint malts. The taste is tropical hops and slightly dank herbal hops. Medium bodied. Good IPA, but not as dank as the hype suggested.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. This brew pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, ripe fruit and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of dank hops, earthy malt and pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a resiny hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 5, 2011
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours with a clear copper body and a large white head that leaves great lacing on the side of the glass. Aromas are strongly citrus hop notes (cascade? centennial?), orange, and tangerine. A decent amount of crystal malt. Flavors are quite sweet, orange, a bit of overripe citrus, tangerine, alcohol. A bit husky on the malt, caramel. Tropical fruits, toffee, some esters and higher alcohols. No astringencies. Medium bubbles. A bit stickier and fuller than I like in my IIPAs.

crossovert (7410) - Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2014
Draft. Amber/gold poor, decent lacing. Smell is sugary with some tropical notes. The flavor is sharp bitter and dank. Carries a bit of booze and sweetness. Slight tropical notes lingering in the finish. Love the bitterness but the yeast and malt characters could be cleaner.
