Can you say yummy? As a Lagunitas fan, I can't believe I never bought this before, but if I did, I did not log it. What a fantastic brew. Of course this is also my favorite style.

This beauty is very clear, with a thin head and a yellowish orange IPA color. The smell is just like the taste only not so much. The balance of tons of bitter hops and sweet malt makes for a real treat. It goes down nice and easy. I am torn between savoring and guzzling.

Buy this if you want a great big IPA experience.

22 to a nonic.

A - Gold. Decently textured off-white head that replenishes itself for a while. Lots of lacing.

S - Hoo boy, hop assault on deck, but actually some sweet malt too. Almost a ganja smell when first poured. Really smells great.

T - Juicy grapefruity citrus with bitter citrus pith. Actually less hoppy than I was expecting, but then again my hop tolerance/palate has shot way up lately. Either way, this is a nice level of hops and bitterness. There's a light expression of malt, but not much. That lets the hops and the dry crispness really define the experience. It kind of makes me yearn for malt to fill in that hole, but that hole and that yearning is part of the art. Its absence is a design element. Has an undertone of the same sort of vegetal, savory dinner smell/taste I got from their regular IPA but more in the background now. Must be some kind of house signature. Each swallow leaves behind a great grapefruit peel bitterness.

M - Evaporates to perfect clean dryness immediately after swallowing. Takes it to the limit of crisp dryness without entering hop abrasion territory, which is really nice.

O - This is a fine, well-crafted, mature, artful beer. The combination of flavor notes in the aroma and taste are just great. I'll definitely buy it again, and soon, to scratch the IPA itch. This is a classy and memorable beer. No bomber is a good deal compared to sixpacks, but at $4.50 for a 22oz., it's a better deal than just about anything else I've found. Keeper.

This is yellow amber beer that pours clear with a large,frothy, cream colored head that stuck around for at least 3 minutes.

The nose is caramel, toffee and citrus hops which are subdued by the malt in this beer. There is a slight toasty presence that elevates the nose a few notches higher than a similar smelling ale.

Taste is magnificent for the style, hops in the front, malty caramel and toffee in the middle and piney bitterness at the end, this beer has a great balance.

A thinner mouthfeel for the style, but brought up in score by the delightful and playful amount of carbonation.

A very easily drinkable beer, especially for being above 8 abv. Very well rounded and drinkable, solid offering from Lagunitas. A definite value and un-regrettable purchase. I would seek this beer out again.
