Tap @ Porky’s - San Leandro: Dark gold color with a white head and sticky lacing. Super hoppy aromas of the farm like wet hay, pine, light juniper and white vinegar. The taste is super hoppy - hay, fermaldyhyde and the strong alcohol taste rises up through the mouth and into the nasal cavity with a slight burn. It has a great bitter aftertaste and not as sweet as some 2IPA’s. scoobyluv (511) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2009
amber color with a thin white head. smell of pine and apricots. it does indeed have a bitter finish but not as impressive as i would like. it’s not a bad beer beer but i don’t see the 99th percentile. i’ve had much better Shag (2981) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 16, 2009
This poured a golden to copper color with a moderate white head. The aroma contains some perfume, peaches, and oranges. The flavor contains some peaches, oranges, and pine. Upon first taste I thought this wasnt that bitter however the finish is extremely bitter. Good malt profile to this one as well. Overall a good IIPA!

Pale shiny copper body with a massive long lasting tan cap. Yum yum that be one tasty aroma. Ginger ale, pine, grape fruit, lime. Daa so many smells so little time. Taste is so very bitter and so very clean. So many hops!!!! Rich roasted malts are very nice but the hops are just kicking there ass. Pine, lime, some peach, a touch of caramel I could go on for a while with the tastes My burp just tasted like gin and tonic. Brew has a sweet start with a intense bitter finish. Excellent beer!! satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2009
intense aroma of grapefruit and lime. appearance is a shockingly plain golden that defies the wildness inside. i could keep my nose jammed in the glass for a good long time. flavor almost stands up to the nose -- more citrus, the bitterness practically burns. there are lots of good IIPAs out there, but few can provide this kind of aroma -- and thats what pushes this into the upper echelon.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2009 Pours hazy golden-orange with minimal head. Nice citrusy aroma with a bit of sweet fruitiness and slight caramel notes. Flavor is abundantly hoppy and resinous, with tons of pithy grapefruit, lemon, and orange notes. Nice dry finish. I havent been overly impressed with Lagunitas in the past, but this one is very good. tgncc (3129) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Aroma of citrus, peach, caramel, grapefruit. Background smell of earthy hops. The appearance is a orange color, true to the style, a little on the lighter gold side. The flavor is a hop explosion, mainly citrus hops, but also a solid malt backbone, caramel, fruits. The finish is a mix of fruity sweetness and citrus hops. Like a mix of peach and grapefruit. Thin/medium mouthfeel, a little oily. Excellent IIPA all around. robforbes (2236) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2009

Bomber picked up at the local bevmo. Pours a dark straw yellow with a solid 1 finger head. The aroma is of super fresh hops (reminded me of opening a bag of hops on brew day). Mouth feel is remarkably smooth and balanced for how hoppy it smelled. Tastes of citrus and smooth malts. The aftertaste has a pleasantly sweet kick to it. Damn good IPA. a061183 (4) - Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2009 does not count
Amazing bomber by Lagunitas! Has a 1 finger head but dissipates into a thin layer with great lacing. Color is a golden goodness with the flavor of pine, pineapple, and yet very bitter but on the other hand wonderfully sweet. An amazing DIPA! My second to of course to 3Fs Dreadnaught.
