Aroma and appearance of a Double IPA. Tastes like an earthy IPA, but smoother, less bitter. Very good. tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Awesome one from Lagunitas! Snifter pour of deep gold to copper liquid with a light head. Nose is healthy hop and hearty. Deep hops and heavy. Flavor is similar, fully hopped, juicy and green. Fresh and earthy. Lotsa resin and pine. All over, this is a killer beer. Almost a double ipa. ARH (1125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2014
32 oz bottle poured into a teku style glass. The aromas are bright and fruity. Primarily lemon, lime, orange, mango, tangerine, and pineapple. There?s also notes of rye in there and a toasted quality. There?s also a hint of cream too. It?s a clear, pale orange, effervescent beer with a slightly off-white frothy head that retains a medium thick ring with a scattering of surface fuzz, and leaves ample puffy lacing. The taste is a medium high sweet with a pleasant, and medium bitterness that sneaks up in the finish. For a "big" beer, this slick, almost thick textured beverage has more of a medium body with a light, somewhere between fuzzy and prickly, carbonation. The taste is big on fruit, more on the tropical end of things, with a piney, bready, and citrus peel bitter finish. There?s a light, alcohol warmth as it goes down, but nothing on the palate. The aftertaste is a bit minty spicy (pine, I suppose) with roasted grains and over-toasted bread (not quite burnt, but almost). It lingers for a while, but it?s not unpleasant, almost clean.

A very unique brew. Lots of buttery toast, butterscotch, and caramel. Very slightly bitter with a nice balance.

Copper pour from bottle. Taste is dough, pine, hay, grain and a hint of booze. Well balanced and very good.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Always been a bigger want from me especially from this brewery. Pours a really nice golden color. Looks better than the average IPA and more distinct. Huge pine aroma. Big hoppy pine taste upfront. Taste blends into a citrusy grapefruit and orange based flavor that is really spot on. Hop feel lingers on the tongue. EXTREMELY drinkable. Really good stuff. dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Pours clear orange with white head. Good lacing. Nose of litter box and citrus. Dirty litter box, citrus and mild to moderate bitter. Really solid. Andy_ (1110) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Light orange colored clear beer with big white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma has fructosey sweet tropical fruits and berries, as well as piney hops and some caramel malts. Flavor is resinous bitter, citrusy and caramelly sweet. Palate is thick with moderate carbonation and stinging bitterness. Finishes with quite strong bitterness, leaving a sticky syrupy caramelly sweet, pale malty and resinous aftertaste. Gets progressively worse, aroma is better than flavor and aftertaste is the least good part of this. Still decent. Kind of a bridge between a DIPA and a Barley Wine. Still a bit too much syrupy caramel for me. Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours a pale to copper orange color with a soapy white head. Aroma of grapefruit and earthiness with some caramel mixed in. Sweet grapefruit taste with a rough hop hit. Tasty. jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2013
UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 A clear golden yellow color with huge white sudsy head with good retention that leaves good lacing. Nice melding of ripe tropical fruits, cracker malt and some spiciness. A nice caramel sweetness with some fruitiness and a subdued piney bitterness in initial taste. Can taste some cracker malt with some spiciness in finish. Semi sticky mouthfeel with a medium body and medium/high carbonation. This may be my favorite IPA. I like that the bitterness doesn’t follow through too strongly in the finish and enjoy the complexity of the sweetness, bitterness and bit of spiciness. Very drinkable.
