look: 5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: This is a beautiful ale. Crystal clear copper, subdued white head.

Aroma: Horrid. Smells of pine so strong it's not unlike gasoline.

Taste: Balanced sweetness that finishes dry. The overtly piney fossil fuel flavor dominates.

Mouth: Medium bodied, just perfect for the style.

Overall: I am a huge fan of Lagunitas. Great brews. This is the first time I was just blow away in a very bad way. I am a big lover of American IPA's and have been for almost two decades. Everything about this ale is fantastic; but this hop bouquet is not pleasant. Wrong aroma hop on this one IMO.

Oh sweet mother of beer. Came home after a dull, boring day at training for a new job. Decided to walk to the corner store for some honey buns and cheese popcorn when I stumbled upon this beauty. Hadn't tried Lagunitas until this Sunday. I had the Sucks with a friend and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Decided to give a Lagunitas brew another try since I was thoroughly impressed. I'm a hop-lover through and through and this baby swept me off my feet and carried me up a flight of crystal stairs into a palace of pure happiness. Needless to say it was delicious. It's hoppy and citrus-y. The mixture of the two dances on your tongue and tingles your senses but not too intensely. It's smooth all the way through- no bite, no bizarre aftertaste, just pure goodness all the way down. The smell is nice although it smells a tinge too nutty for my liking but that's my biggest complaint. It is a fantastic brew and I would definitely recommend it.

Orange in color with a lovely head of white foam, this IPA appeals to many senses from the start. The amazing nose is one of citrus, pine, and some behind-the-scenes tropical fruit. The body of the beer is a little hazy and your senses are easily piqued to take a sip.

As expected, this IPA has a big taste, featuring grapefruit, pine, citrus, mixed tropical fruit, and alcohol. The hops are a little sticky and make their presence known from start to finish. Biscuit- like malts attempt to balance things out and they do a decent job, but the emphasis is still on the hops.

A big brew, this IPA is packed with flavor and it may not go over well with everyone at first, particularly those who are not fans of the IPA style. Hop heads, however, will fall in love immediately and may rank this among the very best. I couldn’t consume this as an everyday brew, but I agree that this is a delicious double IPA that I will certainly buy again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear, bright and golden/copper. Moderate carbonation and thick white foamy head on pour that settles to lacy skim on surface. Thick lace on side runs off and leaves a few patches.

Aroma: Strong citrus hops, pine, and floral. A bit of pear and tropical fruit ester

Taste: Dry and tangy with grassy bitterness. Orange peel, pine, tropical fruit. A bit of dank. Malt notes and alcohol as it warms.

Mouth: Moderately dry, thinnish, with some alcohol tingle.

Overall: Tasty and refreshing. On the hop side of balanced, but easy to drink. I would like a bit more malt and mouthfeel, but overall ... pretty outstanding.

Pale gold, bubbly beer with a smallish head. Massive hop aroma: grapefruit, oranges, pine, becomes more floral as the head dissipates. Thick & chewy in the mouth with noticeable carbonation. Lots of fruity hop flavor but it doesn't completely destroy the malt sweetness that hangs out in the background. Finish is sweet, not super-dry, with some bitterness but not nearly as much as you'd expect. Nice DIPA to sip on.
