A- Classic clear golden orange color. Good finger of head and the lacing looks to be super sticky so far just seeing the head fade away. Sticky spider webs all the way down. Great lookin' brew.

S- I was able to smell this before I even poured it. After the pour my nose was engulfed in the wonderfulness that is this brew. Strong citrus that overpowers everything else in the area, just lots of pungent fresh grapefruit and lemon. Smells amazing.

T/M- Oh.... My... Goodness... All of the flavors are exploding in my mouth, I almost can't take it. It is just the perfect amount of bitterness combined with the maltyness and fruityness and oh so fresh tasting. At first it seems to have a extreme bite, but then it goes down so smooth and there is very little bitter aftertaste. No alcohol burn to speak of and it is not boozy at all. I don't want this to ever end. To me, this brew is a very strong contender for Pliny the Elder in terms of my favorite DIPA, this really is a fantastic beer.

D- This is likely because of the Taste and Mouthfeel being so good, but I could drink this forever, let alone throughout a night of a drinking. I am having trouble finding anything wrong with this beer. This will be my very first perfect score and I believe it is most deserving. I don't know if this beer got me at the right moment or what, but I feel as if I am in heaven at this very moment. I just hope I can find more of this beer somewhere I want more before it's gone.

Thank you Lagunitas for satisfying my palate way beyond my expectations.

This beer is awesome!! If you have the chance definitely try this beer, it is limited so not very much out there.

Looks like an IPA, hazy yellow-orange color.

Smells like grapefruit (the flavor I like in an IPA)

Tastes like grapefruit, citrus flavors and bitter finish that linguers on the back of the tounge, alcohol is well hidden in the flavors. This beer is excelent for the price, I paid $4.49 for this 1 pint 6 oz bottle, oh yeah, I went back and got a case of it because it tasted so good!

The mouthfeel is just like any other IPA, some carbination and goes down very smoothly.

The drinkability of this beer is amazing, I could drink this until I pass out...well I could definitely have a few that's for sure, it is so delicious.

I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good IPA, and you can't beat the price.

Easily managed head is sticky and coats the glass with every pull. Slightly clouded copper body with medium carbonation.

Whoa first pull is a 5.0 on the Taste scale. I'll have to investigate further to see if the first impression will stand. Amazingly this brew remains somewhat balanced by DIPA standards. The hop profile is absolutely flawless. Not too bitter and plenty of citrus. The beer cleans up nicely and doesn't leave behind much resinous hop destruction. I loved it.

This ranks up there with the best DIPA's ever. It won't blow away those that want complete hop destruction but it still packs a huge punch. Once again the crew at Lagunitas knocks it out of the park and still manages to keep their prices within reason. Thank you!!
