One of the best beers I’ve ever tried. Sweet, piney, citrusy godness. Very impressive. Damn.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Some caramel, but mostly hop related aromas. Some floral and spruce, but mostly herbs and resin. Looks pretty, is soft on the palate, and is every bit as bitter as the aroma teases. Really good DIPA, it reminded me of Heady Topper. Thought the good Lord had dropped a bag on me. Is this liquid gargoyle ganj?

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Cole’s. son of a BITCH this is good! Cloudy gold, solid lasting white head - aroma is lightly fruity, mostly massive resin and cannabis - fantastic! Taste is floral, resin and oddly like raw cinnamon - some alcohol. Average body, solid carbonation, longish dry crisp finish. Dangerous, so good.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 22 oz bottle. 4.20.13 version. Pungent citrus hop aroma, sweet, fruity and fresh. Medium body with a dry crisp feel. Fresh hop forward flavor with very light malt sweetness. Smooth and clean flavor that hides the alcohol well. Incredible fresh aroma, a must try.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick white head that leaves great lacing. Smell of pine, resin, citrus and floral. Tastes of all the same things with the citrus shining through the most. It’s extremely hoppy as well. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation and a bone dry finish. Overall this is one of the best double ipas I’ve tried gives pliney and 90 minute a run for their money. I’ll definitely be seeking this out again.

4/01/2013 batch on 3/25/2013. Bottle. Poured two even glasses of yellow orange with two finger head. Very piney citrus aroma. Fresh green hop taste with smooth undertones. Not overwhelming smack you in the face stuff. Enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The 4.20.2013 edition at 9.4% ABV. The aroma is overwhelmingly resin and floral hops, and the appearance is golden amber with very little white head. The taste is quite bitter and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a long bitter finish, soft carbonation, oily texture, and medium body.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Gave the 8.2.13 version the same exact score.
4.20.13 version. Has the sweet hoppy aroma found in so many Lagunitas beers. Tons of hops but it sits really well. A bubbly spiciness that is quite tasty.
