On tap at Brickhouse BBQ in Madison, Wisconsin. Served in shaker pint 11/23/2014.

A- Slightly hazy amber-golden body, one finger frothy white head with good retention time. Lots and lots of rings of lacing. [4]

S- Honey, peach, nectarine, grainy malt, candied sugar. This is a quite sweet beer in both the malty and the fruit senses. This is smelling a bit different than Lagunitas' typical overhopped IPAs in the sense that the fruit aromas come out more here without as much of the resin. [4]

F- As the nose hints, this beer is on the sweet side of pretty much all double IPAs I've had. The malt stands out in a white sugary, mildly grainy manner with syrupy honey-like sweetness buttressed by tropical and stone fruits. Not much to be found in terms of bitter flavours outside of a slightly grassy bitterness on the backend. Again, very sweet but certainly easy to drink. [4]

M- Medium bodied, smooth carbonation, effervescent and mildly crisp without too much resin. Very easy to drink and no hint of the 8.5% ABV arises at all. [4]

O- A very solid DIPA from Lagunitas. Great stuff, enjoyed drinking this. A bit different than all the west coast-style dry + bitter IPAs that tend to be popular these days, despite being from the west coast, but not being quite as malty as the east coast style tends to be. [4]

Final score: 4.00
