look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: It pours a beautiful amber body with a foamy two finger head. Lacing and retention are great and it is difficult to beat this kind of clarity.

Smell: A floral and earthy hop aroma mixes with some pine and fresh fruit. Sweet malts are also noticed slightly at the end.

Taste: A citrus punch transitions nicely into a sweet malt flavor. Slight notes of grapefruit and crackers are noticeable along the way and the hop bitterness lingers on in the aftertaste. This is incredibly well balanced.

Mouth feel: The carbonation level is nice but it is a little "light" in my opinion. The alcohol is well hidden and perhaps easy to drink for those new to the style.

Overall: This is a fine DIPA and probably the best brew I have ever had from Lagunitas.

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a snifter from the 12 oz. bottle.

a: Orange/ amber,2 finger head with lots of lacing.

s: Citrusy but also a little pinier than expected. Amazing.

t: Nice modern IPA profile, citrus, very little taste alcohol for a double. A little sweet.

m: Moderate body, nice carbonation.

o: Excellent beer, If I'm nitpicking it is a little sweet, I could use a little more finishing/dry hop bitterness, this is a great beer and I would be very happy drinking this every day.

Pours a nice caramel color with pillowy head

The smell is slight caramel, piney hops, and citrus - exactly what I'm looking for in a DIPA.

Tastes like it smells - pine and citrus up front with a nice malt backbone and just enough bitterness to let you know its a DIPA. I wouldn't say the bitterness is overwhelming but my palate may be a bit tainted seeing how its my second IPA for the day.

Carbonation is on par for a DIPA, smooth and a bit creamy.

Overall a great DIPA and for the price point you can't complain. The is one that I overlook all the time but will definitely be revisiting soon. Really smooth with a drink-ability that's a little scary for 8%
