Big ass hop smell. Sweet gooey hops burst out. It's all floral, citrus, toffee, and maybe pine. Flavor delivers all that in the aroma with a wallop. I like it. Those hops have free reign and thankfully the malt does its supporting role well by not being overly sweet or toffee like (some scorched sugar smell present). There’s a lingering biting bitterness that's testament to the amount of hops in here.  Body manages to be light enough but it does have some weight to it. Definitely one glass is good! It's hop-load is fatiguing. Pretty good DIPA here.

Solid IPA, but doesn't quite sustain the bite I need

A: Pours a nice amber with a thick, creamy head. Plenty sticky lacing.

S: grapefruit, apricot, and a little pine.

T: Sweet with a transition into slight bitterness.

M: light in the mouth without a ton of carbonation. Very drinkable.

D: Quality DIPA but just lacks the sustained flavors needed to tick top marks. A great value. A bomber of this is enjoyable, but not something to remember.

Bomber bottle poured into a snifter.

A- a semi-translucent (chill haze) orange, slightly amber, with a thin white head. Not much lacing to be had.

S- an almost honey sweetness, with tangerine and grapefruit notes. An almost entirely citric hop presence.

T- Sweet, but not overly so. Tangerine, grapefruit and some peach. The citric hops crush had towards the end with a balancing bitterness that really stays on the palette. Decidedly a Lagunitas brew.

M- a light carbonation with a fairly light mouthfeel for a double IPA. I really wish there was a more creamy mouthfeel here.

O- Good, but not great. Wouldn't seek it out as I have many other readily available (better) options, but certainly not bad by any means.
