Purchased from Dinkytown Liquor, $5/w tax for a bomber. Reviewed live.
A - Pours a bright-orange, clear and translucent. Lively 1-finger head recedes quickly leaving lacing and bubbles.
S - Lovely huge bouquet of pine and citrus hops. Mango, pine resin, fresh flowers. Very lovely.
T - The hops explode after 3 seconds or so in the mouth. Nice and substantial malt backbone evens out the bitterness. Not too complex but exactly what I was expecting.
M - Creamy, light bodied, perfect carbonation.
O - Lagunitas proves that they are one of the better California breweries, and that should say a lot because of the stiff competition in that state. Also, their beers are more reasonably priced than most. Recommended.

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.
