Pours clear amber color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention and lacing are decent. Has a nice citric, piney aroma. The hoppiness is very evident. Has a strong citric malty taste with a moderate piney hoppiness. Piney, bitter aftertaste that is a tad too soapy. Aftertaste is a little too astringent. Still a decent beer. The aroma makes it.

I always see this one lying around and have never picked it up before. Today, I went to one of my local beer shops and picked up a 6 pack of this on a whim. $10.99 for a DIPA? I'm in. Poured into my Speigelau IPA glass. Golden yellow like a wheat (technically it is a wheat). Nice thick white head. Smells amazing. Citrusy, fruity, some malt sweetness. Taste is tropical fruit and citrus. A lot of orange, grapefruit, and mango. The wheat and malt balance well with the hops. IBU is in the 60s which is pretty low for a DIPA but it works out so well. I give it a perfect 5 for mouthfeel because I honestly wouldn't change anything. The fact that this is 8.5% and tastes so sessionable is unbelievable to me. It's not sticky or anything. Very light. Lagunitas can do no wrong. Another amazing brew from them.

12 oz bottle.
Generous, durable head leaves soapy lacing. Deep amber color.
Aroma and flavor are reminiscent of Sucks, but milder and with less amlt and lighter malt. Similarity to Sucks is, of course, a very good thing. Hops are mainly citrus and herbal but some floral and a touch of pine too.
Medium body with crisp, lively and rather high carbonation.
