Was very disappointed with this. Big fan of sucks, sumpin sumpin, hop stoopid, and ipa. Initially I was very excited when I saw it was another iipa from lagunitas. Looked great, but smell was quite boozy to me and a little off-putting, taste at first was decent but left a boozy, malty and strange after taste. Really wanted to like this beer as I really am a fan of lagunitas, but I wish I went with my gut and just got a single bottle of this instead I'd the sixer I bought. Overall I didn't find this beer to be very hoppy at all and I personally would t really consider it to be a iipa, but what do I know?!

Saw this beer in the area of my package store where the Lagunitas sucks used to be, figured I had to give it a shot. The beer is definitely above average for a dipa but I found it oddly lacking in aroma. The color is a clean clear copper, leaves good lacing in the glass. The smell is a mild hops/boozy scent not much malt on the nose. The mouthfeel is solid, with a nice abrasiveness that only a good ipa can provide. Taste is obviously hop forward, resin, slightly boozy with a strong hop bitter finish. Balance is not on this beers agenda. Overall, this is worth a six pack, a nice sipping beer that is served better on the higher side of cellar temperatures. However be warned at close to 10% abv it's likely not a session beer.
