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

Pours a reddish amber colour with a white foamy head which stays around for a long time.

The smell is sweet honey, earthy hops, pepper and citrus fruits.

The taste is bitter up front, honey, syrup and a little alcohol.

The mouth feel is oily and syrup like. There is a low to medium amount of carbonation.

This beer is certainly all about the hops but is complex enough to keep me interested. Another tastey beer from lagunitas.

Review #200

A- Pours a hazy golden orange with a one finger off white head. Some alcohol legs and decent lacing as well.

S- Superbly hoppy, a lot of pine and a ton of citrus. There is a lot of pineapple and apricots and grapefruit of course. More bitter then sweet.

T- A bitterness up front followed by a wave of hop flavor. A bunch of citrus ranging from pineapple to lemon to pine. A bready/wheaty malt profile is here but everything is overpowered by the hops. Blended really well and actually quite drinkable considering the IBU's.

M- Goes down way too easy. It really doesn't last long in my glass. Very slightly warming. Enough feel to keep it feeling silky smooth but I can go through this too quickly.

O- Awesome DIPA. The price, the drink ability, the flavor and of course the dirt cheap 4.50$ price tag is all fantastic. For some reason, this beer is not sold in my area and I found it first 5 hours outside my city. Dear Lagunitas, distribute to Kentucky.

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

Appearance - Pours a foggy amber with a finger width of foamy, bubbly head.

Smell - Earthy piney hops, citrus, tropical fruits.

Taste - Strong hops presence with a piney resin taste. Citrus (grapefruit) and passionfruit notes also come through. Clean finish. Has bready and caramel characteristics that balance out this powerfully hopped brew.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little sticky.

Overall - An enjoyable DIPA by Lagunitas. Good representation of the style with a strong hops backbone.
