Really....will it get better than this? I am so glad the guys at Lagunitas decided to make this a regular production beer and not a seasonal. I really dont see a need to blather on about this as it seems everyone here tends to agree that this is AWESOME IPA.

Picked it up at Armanettis in Chicago today. clear, golden orange with minimal head. nose is dominated by the citrus (grapefruit) with some caramel maltiness in the background. Hint of alcohol in the nose, but hardly perceptible. Flavor is well-balanced mix of grapefruit and malts. Has a nice lingering bitter finish.

With great thanks to HogTownHarry for sharing this baby with me. Appearance: Beautiful golden orange with a decent creamy off white head. Aroma: Super fruity, sharp, mangos, pineapple, malt and just juicy hops! Flavour: Wow! Juicy! Seriously hoppy with pineapple, mango, salt, more hops, bitter, citrus with a lovely sweet citrus finish. Nice indeed.

Pours gold with white head and good lacing. Aroma and taste is very citrusy with lots of hops but not quite as bitter as some double IPAs. This is my favorite beer that I have had from Lagunitas, and a great double IPA.

These are the the kind of beers I love. Beer pours dark, honey color with a big, totally retained off white head. Aroma is massive with layers of pine and grapefruit more pine and grapefruit. Flavor is citric bitter with none of the anoying cloying sweetness of some imperial IPAs. This is an excellent beer and rates with some of the greats!@

Excellent IIPA, with a heavy body and appreciable bitterness. The aroma is heavy with piney resin. The heavy body hides the bitterness until the finish.

Delicious! Bomber from BevMo in CA. The benefit of business travel is getting to explore the local grog. This one is fantastic! Not too bitter but a ton of aroma and flavor-of-the-flower...HOPS RULE!!

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2009
22 oz. bomber. Poured a bright orange/gold with a small white head. Aroma could almost have been grapefruit juice - citrus, citrus, citrus. Flavor had a very nice hop bite, but little else. I almost felt like it was an American macrobrew with a hop finish. Fairly tasty, easy to drink, but I didnt think it was anything special.

This is an example of my ignorance. I was looking for a funky saison-esque type IIPA in this due to the name but got none of that. Nice beer although kind of standard fare with the only big difference in flavor or taste that I gathered was the forward presence of grassiness existing right along with the bitter citrus (no floral or sweet citrus here at all). Mouthfeel is great though, with the carbonation only detectable when you swallow. The rest of the time it has a weighty simple syrup feel. Nice beer, and very drinkable for the style. Thanks Lagunitas. 2009 22oz.
