This brew pours a semi-opaque copper color with a three finger head which lasts for some time and thick lacing which remains on the glass until the end.
The smell is strong with citrus and floral hops; mostly grapefruit and orange but also lemon and pine. The smell of caramel malts is also present.
The hops dominate the taste in the front and back, mostly grapefruit and orange taste. Caramel and roasted malts come in a little in the middle and then the taste finishes with oily hop bitterness.
The mouthfeel is relatively thick, slightly oily, there is also a tang which is probably due to the carbonation. I would not say the feel is "chewy" but it is close.
Overall this is what the label says it is; a hoppy beer which comes close to tearing your tongue off but not quite. Hopheads should give this one a try. This is another winner from Lagunitas.

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.
