4.65/5 rDev +10.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a snifter.
A - Very clear translucent tangerine color with about two fingers of fluffy white head, good retention. Leaves excellent lacing on the glass.
S - Typical Lagunitas nose huge tropical fruit and citrus. Apples, pears, pineapple, grapefruit. Amazing!
T - Similar to the nose, first the tropical fruit hit you followed by a sweet grapefruit. Afterwards you get a mix of nice sweet caramel malt and some piney bitterness to clean things up. Even though this is 102 IBU's it dosnt taste nearly that bitter.
M - On the heavy side of medium, almost a mild syrupy feel but still very drinkable. Medium carbonation.
O - This beer is awesome, tons of my favorite tropical hop scents and taste. At a 4 dollar price point you cant really beat that.Love it!

Julian dating on the 22oz bomber revealed to be from May 20th (so almost 2 months on this by the time I cracked it open and poured it into the tulip glass). Might have wanted it a bit fresher, but that is no news flash. 1 and 1/2 fingers of white head which dissipated quickly and left some nice lacing. Interesting tangerine hue in the light, very tempting. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, and bitterness (yes, bitterness... this IS a 102 IBU brew!). Pine notes on the front wave of the taste profile, along with a citrusy (almost lemony) mid-note, with a big bitter finish. Continual carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel, and a slightly oily presence on the back end. This had a nice balance for a big beer, and though I was v. happy... would have to try one that was super fresh to make this a go-to choice.
