look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A- Deep Orange slight haze with a foamy head and lacing all over the pint glass
Just pouring from the bottle had me salivating for this brew

S- Smells like what you expect heaven to look like ( just picture it)... Definitely can smell a pine needles to the face, downhill snowboarding, balls to the wall snow all over the place winter smell

T- My oh My!!! I am not sure what Lagunitas categorizes this as, but it tastes like a DIPA, to me! The hop forward profile slams the tongue with bitterness that leaves me wanting to chug this beast and take the next and keep chugging. God it's good

M- Hops Hops Hops, nice carbonation just enough on the tounge to keep you twitching, just want an endless supply.

O- Hands down, the most impressed I have ever been of any beer I've ever had!!!
