From bottle, can't find date. Quality nearly straight hops beer. Not too much sweetness or florally or citrusy flavor going on. Very well put together, a little malt mix is just right. I'd call this a 1.5x, not quite a double, like I do with Southern Tier 2x (my session IPA). I stress how good this beer smells with every sip. Lagunitas makes very nice IPA's and this fits in quite nicely. It stimulates the front of the palate and settles in the back of the mouth with strong hops, but so super smooth you will keep grabbing for more. I repeat a third time, this beer smells awesome!

On tap at World of Beers Syracuse. Really not much to say except WOW. This ranks with the best of the best. Perfectly balanced sweet maltiness and citrusy hops.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. An appealing amber-gold color with steady carbonation, with a pinkie-width of dense white foam. Smells of pine, citrus, banana peel, booze. Slams the tongue with a powerful wallop of hop fruitiness and with some malty caramel to balance. A little overwhelming--I never quite find the subtleties other reviewers seem to find. Mouthfeel is a little oily and leaves you smacking your lips from the bitterness. This is a very good double IPA/West Coast hop-bomb.

L (4.25) - Nice golden/orange color. Good amout of fluffy white foam on top.
S (4) - Not a whole lot of aroma. I mean, you smell a little bit of the floral hop. Some.
T (4.5) - Solid IPA. Big punch of hops, but not overly bitter. Floral, citrus, all that jazz. No alcohol burn or anything.
F (4) - Nice drinkable beer. Good carb 'bite' with it. About what you'd expect from an IPA.
O (4.25) - I'd had this beer before, but forgot to review it. But I really like it. It's a GREAT IPA, and is a pretty good deal too. I will add this regularly to my rotation.
