4.05/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange to copper in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall off-white head that reduces to a patch of extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: Strong aromas of citrus and pine/resin hops.

T: There is a strong amount of hop flavors, both citrus and pine/resin - the hop flavors are very nice and there is some bitterness but it is not overly agressive. There is a strong malt body with some notes of caramel sweetness that really balances out a lot of the bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Very crisp.

O: A very tasty and very enjoyable beer that is somewhat easy to drink. I expected that this beer would have been tougher to drink with the massive amount of IBUs. There is a slight presence of alcohol but it is not overpowering.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip at cellar temperature.

L - Deep gold color with a 2-finger bubbly, white head. Retention is only alright but there’s a bunch of awesome lacing. Crystal clear with a nice amount of bubbles.

S - Nice, full hop bouquet with tropical fruit (pineapple, peach, and mango), grapefruit, and pine notes. There is also a very noticeable and solid caramel malt backbone that adds a lot of balance to the aroma.

T - Starts off sweet with caramel malt and brown sugar notes and quickly builds into a beautifully bitter beast with lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits, along with some floral and pine notes. While this lives up to the 100+ IBU bitterness, the sweetness complements it and really balances the beer well.

F - Medium-bodied with tons of tongue-tingling carbonation, a sticky and chewy mouthfeel, and a brilliantly bitter and dry finish. Bitterness hangs around for an excellent amount of time, as does the mouth-tickling carbonation. A subtle and pleasant throat-warming sensation from the alcohol.

O - This beer was excellent. It had a great hop aroma and taste that was balanced well with the malt sweetness, and the mouthfeel was maybe the best that I’ve ever had from a DIPA. It had a great body, awesome carbonation, and a superb bitter finish that hung around for a while. Furthermore, the 8% ABV was completely hidden. This was an awesome offering from Lagunitas. Definitely a must-try for hopheads.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Amber hue, but def not dark amber/caramel
S: Smells great but not representative of the yummy taste
T: Outstanding. Can't taste the 8% alcohol level. Great malt citrus hoppiness. Not as sweet as Firestone's Double IPA which is a good thing.
O: Competitive pricepoint and my go to DIPA! Def recommend!

Pours a bright apricot color, bordering on orange. Slightly different than the darker, almost brown IPAs I've had before. The head is a dirty straw color and fluffy. As it falls, a nice thin lace remains.

One of the best smelling beers I've had. Flowery, piney, citric...all at the same time. Faintest hint of honey in the background.

A little honey, some grapefruit and pine. Very simple, very good.

The 102 IBU are well hidden. It's bitter, but it's not like you lose the feeling in your tongue. A bit loose in the mouth, there's a slight sweetness early. It gradually moves to an acidic feel before giving way to a sticky, resinous bitter of all good DIPAs.

It's one of the best DIPAs I've had. Overall, it's one of the best beers I've ever had. Easy to drink, very gentle despite the style. Really a quality pick of the style.

22oz bomber served in an oversized wineglass.

pours a bright, golden amber tone with a finger and half creamy beige head; excellent retention and great lacing all over the place. gorgeous beer. well done.

vibrant, aromatic nose is rife with citrus (notably grapefruit) and pine. not much of a malt presence at all. flavor delivers the promise of the nose: tons of citrus and pine, with pine opening up more mid-palate; a hoppy bitterness persists through the finish. a touch of sweet malt evident in the background. a very drinkable, tasty DIPA. medium-plus bodied on the palate with adequate carbonation.
