3.75/5 rDev -5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
bottle into tulip
appearance: orange/red with amber hues, 1 finger white head
smell: sugary citrusy pine, some grapefruit
taste: Sweet, sugary, floral, sweet caramel malt backbone, sweet malty finish with some bitterness but not dominant on the palate. It almost has a cherry like medicinal sweet aftertaste
mouthfeel: medium carbonation, thin yet syrupy feel
overall: too sweet, could use more alcohol and more dominant hop notes, instead this beer is very sweet, sugary, and malt heavy for a DIPA. May be a stylistic choice, as I prefer grapefruit and citrus dominant IPAs where the malt takes the backseat in the flavor profile, the finish is just too sweet for me. Most Lagunitas beer's I think are on the sweet side, but I usually like most of them, this one was just average at best. I would much prefer Hop Stoopid, Lucky 13, Undercover, or Lil Sumpin Sumpin.
