4.03/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. 03/16/09.
Pours a clear orange-amber color with almost an inch of soft whitish head. The head dropped slowly leaving moderate lacing, great retention. Aroma is malty with a fresh and solid floral hop aroma.
Taste starts with slightly sweet biscuity malt. That is joined by strong citrus and grapefruit flavors. The finish is packed with bitter herbal, citrusy, and piny hops. The bitterness doesn't seem near as high as the label suggests (102 IBU). It could use a little more malt to balance it out.
Feel is medium-bodied with plenty of carbonation. Somewhat resiny with a bone-dry finish. The alcohol is nowhere to be found in the taste or feel. Drinkability is very good for such a big beer. The bottle went quickly, and the alcohol crept up on me.
Overall, a very good imperial IPA. Great hop aroma and taste, and very easy to drink. Probably my favorite beer so far from Lagunitas, and very affordable at $4 a bottle.

appearance; hazy orange, evident carbonation, crazy head with good retention.
smell; tropical fruit notes are off the hook. very strong aroma of guava, passion fruit and pineapple. with a bit of hoppy pine in there as well.
taste; sweet tropical fruit, the guava and passion fruit are there, backed up by malt and then a ltlle bit of hop bitterness to finish.
mouthfeel; medium body, slightly creamier then excepted, alot of bubbles.
overall; really underated beer in my opinion, great experience, great value, would easily buy again.
