Bottled 134th day of the year, which means it was bottled May 14th. Poured on June 30th. I bought a 22oz bottle for $6, which is a bit high, apparently. I've heard that a lot of people can get this for $4 or $5 tops. Oh well. I saw it, I hadn't had it, and I wanted something new. Fortunately for me, this is relatively fresh, and it was stored in the fridge.

Appearance: A nice orange color with a slight hop haze... looks great. Off-white, two-finger head floats on top. Good looking lacing as well.

Smell: It smells like I'd expect from Lagunitas. Sweet, tropical fruits like most West Coast IIPAs. Piney, resinous hops are also pretty noticeable.

Taste/feel: Bitter, sticky hops right on the front. The finish has a bit of sweetness from the malts, but there's almost an oniony character. It's not really an onion flavor, but something about the aftertaste reminds me of it. The finish is just a good amount of resin and pine. This is definitely a more bitter IIPA (which is excellent... just what I wanted), but it still has some nice balance. The feel is medium bodied with a medium carbonation... I'm glad the carbonation isn't too high. The hops burn the tongue and throat a little bit -- I could do without any sort of prickly carbonation.

A bit expensive for me to pay $6 for a single 22oz bottle, but that's the price you pay at a lot of little liquor stores. This beer is just flooding with some good hops in the nose and on the tongue. Very drinkable. This is a beer I've wanted to try for awhile, and I'm glad to have gotten this bottle. I'd definitely buy this again.
