look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Looks like a cloudy apple juice colored beer with a 2 inch off white head on top. thick foam head has great hold and took a while to wear down. Nice lacing.

S- Sweet sugary smell with gentle citrus hops just bursting out of the glass. Floral notes are just a delightful aroma to round it out.

T- Piney. Good hops. Just the right amount of bitterness coming in at the back of the finish.

M- Full bodied, creamy foamy. Just really fills the mouth.

O- What a great way to finish the day. Run out and get one of these right away.

22 oz. bottle poured into pint glass. Bottled on March 4, so it's two weeks old. 102 I.B.U 4 U (me).

A - Pours a totally transparent golden orange color. Rather pale for the style with remarkable clarity. The one finger off white head has low density and dies pretty quickly, but leaves behind a nice halo and amorphous lacing down the glass.

S - The aroma is of grapefruit, grass, and dank hops.

T - Really nice crisp flavor starting with some grass/earthiness, followed by a nice hop bitterness. Finish has that sort of funky onion hops bite, which I enjoy in moderation.

M - Has a pretty light body with nice carbonation and a soft feel.

O - This beer is completely night and day from my previous bottle, which was well past its prime. There is a nice bitterness to it and a crisp feel. This is a very good DIPA, for a nice price. Highly recommend it if you can get it fresh.

Bottled on the 48th day of the year and consumed on the 78th day of the year.
There is a white soapy/sudsy head that falls apart quickly. Slightly hazy with a golden/light amber coloring. Lacing covers the glass.
Pine and an inviting sweet peach aroma crawl into your nostrils.
Lots of tolerable bitterness especially on the back end. Pine bitterness dominates right off the bat giving way to a slight malt character before finishing with more bitterness. Not as sweet on the tongue as in the nose. The alcohol is present and pleasant. Enough of a sweet lip sticky malt to keep drinking this hop bomb.
Medium bodied and dry.

Poured from a 650 ml. bottle into a tulip.

A: Dark, golden/amber hue. Slight, bubbly, white head. Beer ring left around rim. Decent, but sporadic lacing.

S: Pine nuts and lavender with a little honey and black licorice.

T: Piny hops on Italian bread.

M: Biting hops, dry finish.

D: Sipping brew. The hop bite kind of sucks the moisture out of your taste buds.... but, that's kind of the idea.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice color, but not much of a head and only nominal lacing. The hops takes the day, but has a little balance with some sweet and floral notes in the nose. Flavor is mostly just hop bitterness. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Wow. Not much to add over what's been said. One of my fav's. Balanced, drinkable for 8%, creamy, hoppy, smoove not easy to trap in one bottle. Nice lace, somewhat unfiltered. Nice to be able to pick this up anywhere anytime without much fuss. Enjoy.

A favourite that I can't believe I haven't rated. Bring on the Dipa, us beer is Black Flag, Fear, Circle Jerks, Dead Kennedys and Naked Raygun all in the same glass. Ok enough of the punk rock analogies love this double ipa and although my rating was on draft this was a bottle tonight and the Simpson's episode that inspired this rating.

This is a good< well rounded beer. for it being "102" i.b.u. (4 u) it certainly doesn't taste THAT "hoppy". the 8% alcohol is a welcoming expierence. i like it. aromas of hops and taste of hops, also there is a slight sweetness to it it. i didn't care for this beer the first time i had it but trying it again was a great idea! some of "Lagunitas" products have been a "miss" but this is definatley a hit!
