This beer pour a beautiful clear golden color. A 2 finger white foamy/sudsy head sits atop it. Head retention is fantastic, fading eventually into a thick film and leaving thick sheets of lacing behind. Nose is rather complex - there is a wonderful blend of pine, citrus and floral hops that are all so prevalent that it took me a long time to realize it was in fact all three. Taste lends slightly more to the citrusy hops, with floral and pine hops mixing in to give a well balanced hop blend that just hits you! Hops aren't the only flavoring to this brew, there is a nice caramel malt blend that balances this beer out. The beer is medium bodied, lighter on the carbonation. Mouthfeel is quite sticky, somewhat filling but not too filling. If it weren't for the ABV, I would sit with this puppy all night - even still the drinkability is quite nice!

Poured a double deuce into my New Belgium globe. So start the Super Bowl of Lagunitas bombers. This beer pours a clear, bright copper with a bushy white head that leaves massive creamy circles all the way down the glass. I don't know what it is about a well-made DIPA's being the most attractive beer style. It seems like it is very rare to see a DIPA look like crap. The aroma is citrus mixed with a little pine and just a hint of pale malts. Definite notes of grapefruit pith, lemon, tangerines and freshly cut pine trees. The flavor is extremely one sided. Hops, hops and more hops. Big grapefruit, pineapple, orange rind, and just a bit of mango. There is just a hint of biscuity sweetness coming through on the middle of flavor profile. Hop Stoopid finishes with a sharp hop bitterness leaving the palate screaming for another sip. The mouthfeel is a bit lighter then I had expected with a very light carbonation. To me, I think this is the best beer for the money. A double deuce of a 8% Double IPA for $3.99! You really can't beat that deal and for that price, I'll always have one sitting in my fridge.

Thanks to flexabull for the great extra
Bottle poured into my pint glass produced a good two fingers worth of head that lasts on top of a golden hued body.

Aromas of floral citrus hops and a light malt presence in the nose as well

The initial flavor is hops but it is balanced enough with the malts to keep it from being to bitter some nice citrus flavors as well (pineapple, grapefruit)

Good mouthfeel nice and light with enough carbonation to make it crisp as well

Very drinkable brew a great Imp. IPA would seek out again if I could get it. I'm going to go enjoy the rest now

Pours glowing tangerine with a creamy but stiff off white head that fades to clumps and rings. Pure orange blossom and skunk nose. Seville jam and orange lollipop malts with a hint of pineapple then big clementine (Centennial?) hops with some resin. A hint of sweet orange zest to finish and a children's chewable aspirin bitterness lingers. Clingy, medium, smooth, oily, no burn.

Juicy, sappy, hoppy yet easy-drinking - goes down almost like an APA. Malt backbone is just enough to hang the hops on, and the hops don't scorch - this is no tongue scrapper. Don't get the 100 IBU or the 8% at all.

Another brew with that Lagunitas compulsive drinkability - don't know how they do it but I love it!
