A: Golden orange. Small IPA head. Very clear and with carbonation streaming. Decent lacing.
S: Big on the tropical fruits. Mango and pineapple dominate. Sweet malts. It isn't super super strong, and it smells a bit faded... I think I may have gotten an older bottle. Despite this, it still has a great aroma.
T: Tastes like it smells. Kind of like taking a big bite of mango and pineapple, yummy! Generic malt sweetness to balance out the hops without taking their presence away. Not massive flavor, again, it tastes like a shell of what it could/should be. The alcohol is somewhat present throughout, and seems to leave a warmth in my throat in the aftertaste. It almost tastes like a fruity cocktail. Finishes pretty clean. Not a whole lot of bitterness. Does not have a dry finish.
M: Kind of thin, actually. Medium-high carbonation, but small bubbles. Thin and boring.
I picked this one up at a grocery store, although it was refrigerated, there is no telling how long it has been there. I've had Lagunitas before and this one just tastes faded. That being said, what flavor was there was very very nice and what I look for in a DIPA. I wish Lagunitas would put a date on the bottle.
