22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas. Aroma has orange hop notes as well as some cattiness and hempiness present. Some ethanol is also detected. A few candy sugars do a pretty good job of hiding the ethanol, though. Transparent orange-copper color with a nice frothy off-yellowish head that leaves nice lacing. Spritzy orangey hops present to start, which is followed by a really good and solid malt backbone that has just enough sweetness. Finishes with more citrus flavored hoppiness. An incredibly well-balanced and drinkable ale. It drink pretty good.
Moderately hoppy ale. Distinct taste, but I️ can’t quite decide what the flavor is coming from. Moderate-heavy ale. Wouldn’t be drinking more than 1-2 in an evening.

A big, bold beer. Not for the faint of heart. However, the taste is actually rather smooth, due to the low IBU level. beer_rookie (683) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Pours a clear golden color. Two fingers cream colored head. Head lasts and lasts. Good retention, good lacing. ehaak26 (725) - - NOV 4, 2017
Aroma is pineapple! I'm pleasantly surprised. Also orange, light pine. Not a lot of bitter hops. Smells great!
Taste is well balanced. It smelled sweet, but has enough hops to balance. Pineapple, pine, orange, apricot, peach. Lots going on here. Delicious!
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. A little chewy. Very drinkable. Alcohol is very well hidden.
Overall, this is outstanding. I would recommend it, and I would buy it again. It's super duper.
Bottle from Hegedorn's. Pours a yellow orange with thick white head. Aroma of wheat and citrus hops. mjdhobbs (13) - - OCT 24, 2017
Aromas were a little disappointing straight out of the gate. It had very faint grass and citrus. Flavors are also kinda mellow with citrus and grass. It is a drinkable beer but a bit of a let down

Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit, overripe pineapple, pine sap. Taste is citrus and herbal marmalade. Super thick and sappy. What you would expect from Lagunitas. meccahh69lol (366) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - OCT 17, 2017
from a 12 oz bottle into a FBD glass. The aroma is thick hoppy resiny piney thing with a caramel piss color. The flavor is a strong hoppy early 2000s style bitter wallop of wavy hop fields and citrusy undercurrents. It is fairly palatable for a 8.7% abv but this one isn't fooling anyone, it is a boozy sipper. Good for souping and best showing in the kitchen on a poopy pizza tummy 2sday. bth122 (1681) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2017
Draft at Mad Mex. straw color with medium head. Aroma is fresh tropical fruit. Taste is tropical citrus hop and pine. Medium heavy bitter. Average carbonation. Some warming alcohol. Medium body. It's good.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2017 Smells like an IPA rich and very Hoppy. Head is white and goes away a few min but has excellent lacing.When I was done my glass had rings all down it. The taste is excellent. Hops, citrus, piney, finishes smooth and slightly bitter. orbit (265) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2017
Good ale with some spicey notes and fruity tones. It's not exactly an IPA, but related, good drinker
