Draft at Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy dark straw with white head. Nose is intense resiny hops, honeydew, pineapple. Tastes well balanced, with extremely well hidden alcohol, juicy hops, melon, citrus, and a crisp, velvety finish. Bravo!

On draft at Ashley’s. About as perfect as an IPA can be. Super floral aroma, super dank hops flavour. Like fermented weed, only far better (as weed makes me nauseous, and this was just delicious).

If you have the chance to buy/order this, do it. It’s an amazing dipa that will toss your pallet for a loop that sets you down gently in a green alpha acid ridden bed of awesome.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2012 A fresh tap pour from Dogwood Tavern in Falls Church, VA. Lagunitas actually outdid themselves on this hop masterpiece! A 9.2% Double IPA that smells like a fresh hop garden, is PERFECTLY well balanced, and drinks like something of a session IPA. Floral, citrusy-sweet and piney, I could drink this all night long!!!!! Unfortunately, it wasn’t lit enough to see the color, but I’m almost certain of a full clarity, amber-yellow. It has a thin white, sugary lacing, This is very possibly my favorite beer from the hop side of Lagunitas ever!

Pours a clear golden color with an off white head. It has a very clean, candied grapefruit bouquet. It has a wonderful grapefruit forward flavor. There’s a nearly perfect mouthfeel for the style. It’s very complimentary to the flavors. No discernible alcohol warmth. This is a magnificent beer.

A 4/20 IPA release by Lagunitas? Hmm I wonder if it’s going to smell like... Oh Lord, yes. Waldo’s Special Ale is in a new class of dank. The smell is piney, floral, piney, grassy, piney, herbal, and piney. Appearance is a ruby-amber shade with a nice head. Given the pine-dominated aroma, I was surprised at Waldo’s complexity. Yes, it has plenty of aggressive resin bitterness. But there’s also sweet malt, bright citrus, spicy ginger-like notes, and nectar. The feel is damn near syrupy; this is an ale you practically chew. This 4/20 special is winner from Lagunitas. Imagine that.

Big beer. Big aroma with lots of grapefruit body sweat reefer n malt. Big thick head lasts forever. Huge flavor like nose but bittersweet & good drinking. Perfect body. Beer’s bang on. Damn.

onceblind (5312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Clear darkish gold under a foamy white head. The aroma has tons of hoppy melon and pine resins, some dank orange and grapefruit zest and some hopped caramel. Very lovely nose. Smooth flavor with a big hop ride with ample but bitter enough for a serious hop head. Thankfully not acidic, but floral with sweet undertones, but not enough to downplay the lovely grapefruit and grassy notes. There’s a bit of lemongrass as well, and more floral resins with a leafy-hoppy sweet caramel undertone that’s very sturdy and full. Just a wonderful DIPA with depth and balance with a big sticky melon hop bitterness.

Pours amber with a huge off white head. Aroma is extremely ripe red grapefruit & passion fruit with a slight spice component! Taste is red grapefruit, tangerine rind and bitterness! AWESOME! The bitterness is insidious. It creeps in boldly and steadily like old age. AWESOME! I remember when Hopslam was as good as this. P.S. Rechecked my old Hopslam score. This one scores higher. Hmmm.
