Clear orange pour with a nice white head that fades down to thick ring. Really nice lacing. Aroma is strong tropical fruit, pine, herbal, and a bit bready. Taste is a sweet citrus and caramel, with some resin and grapefruit. Nice bitterness with a sweet balance. Slick texture, medium body. Really enjoyable beer.

Golden pour with a nice head and lasting lacing. Very nice nose of grapefruit and other citrus against a slight spruce essence. Almost medium bodied with an average carbonation. The mouthfeel is almost creamy. An outstanding hop flavor with grapefruit the most forward. Spruce and a slight malt sweetness round out this well balanced ale. The alcohol content is totally hidden by the flavor. The finish is more smooth than crisp with a nice tartness and a soft bitterness. This is one of the best.

Pale gold, quick dissipating white head. Hit of pine, then citrus, with some grain. Thicker mouthfeel , steady bitternes. kkleu357 (640) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bright orange in color. Fluffy white head. Sweet aroma. Smells like a cake baking in the oven. Bitter sour taste. Almost an onion apple taste, but in a good way. Good overall beer. pwnzilla61 (9) - - JAN 16, 2014 does not count

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 Bottle. Pours dark yellow/gold with a 2 finger off-white head with a lot of nice lacing. The aroma is hoppy fruit, citrus mostly tangerine, some pine and earthy notes. The taste is excellent. It’s full of fresh, dank resiny hops with a perfect malt balance, candied fruit. The palate is very smooth and light considering the hop flavors. Medium bitterness and light. This is very drinkable and smooth with tons of flavor and character. coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Draft. Poured deep amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine, hefty malt backbone with some interesting cereal notes. Struck me -- as it has many here -- as a DIPA. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orangish gold body under a beautiful one inch frothy off-white head that slowly faded. Lots of nice lacing remains. The nose is big and bright with boatloads of fresh and juicy hops, really resiny and dank, while the malt base just sits in the background and doesn’t interfere. The flavor is just as bright and resiny as the nose hinted at. Lots and lots of fresh hop flavor in here while maintaing a restrained bitterness level that could impair the palate. Really mouthwatering with just a light pale bready and crackery malt base that’s fairly dry. There’s maybe a touch of spiciness from the rye in here, but it pretty well gets drown out by the intense hopping. Medium bodied with sticky and juicy hops and nice soft fizzy carbonation. Crazy good IPA for my tastes, though it’s classified as an ASA on RB. Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear deep golden very light amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is packed full of citrusy fleshy fruit hops and a hint of caramel sweetness. Flavor has a bit more malt balance, but certainly still shines through with fleshy tropical fruit goodness. Slight bitterness with a fruity sweetness lingers into the finish. Phenomenal beer, although I’m not sure I agree with the Strong Ale category. More of an imperial IPA. brewballs (215) - USA - JAN 15, 2014
Lagunitas rarely disappoints. I like that they offer high end brews as well as some that are at a reasonable price. This one is no exception. Copper hue. Foamy head. Grapefruit, bitter taste. Hoppy. This is not an American Strong Beer. Its almost like a double IPA. Cloying wash down and yet delicious. Not a bad brew. An excellent way to end a work day.
