3.78/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
22oz bomber poured into a pint glass.
A- Clear amber color 1/3 inch white head....sticky bubbly lace and good head retention.
S-Big citrus and grassy aroma from the hops....mostly hops....light malts....overall this is what I was expecting...very good.
T-All hops....big citrusy juicy hops....quite refreshing....with a light floral grassy feel....long bitter finish....This beer is some where between a double IPA and a regular IPA...for some reason I tend to be on the fence about these beers that fall in the 7-8% range....overall for the alcohol I think this could quite possibly be a session beer....even with its strength.
M/D- Medium bodied and slightly on the thick side for the style.... I really think that it is easy to drink and does not come off too spicy...I look forward to the six pack release of this one and once again I am very pleased with what Lagunitas has to offer.

Got this and Sucks. Like this better. Yeah, I said it.
A- gave it a 4.25 cuz the head retention and color is awesome. Little floaty goodies in there too, but its still clear. Just a great looking brew.
S- Balance. Hops bite you with the bitterness. Malt holds its own.
T- Balance. I love how malty it is. Bitterness is clear and crisp. You can taste the craftsmanship.
M- beautiful. Its dry, but just the right amount. Its almost got a chewy feeling to it, but its just got the perfect amount of body.
Over this beer is fantastic, Id get it over Sucks any day. Yeah, I said that again.
I put just a splash of this in my sauteed mushrooms with garlic and oregano, basil, black pepper and olive oil. It was awesome over steak.
