Pretty standard IPA fare. Which is to say good but it doesn't stand out. Gold-amber, leans toward red. Decent head but it faded fast.

Maybe the only Imperial IPA I want nothing to do with. And one of two hoppy beers from Lagunitas that I didn't enjoy.

Pours a clear honey straw color with a short dense creamy head that settles into a light ring and left a small wall of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is of a sweet honey malt. A bit too sweet. Some tropical fruit notes from the hops; big pineapple and apricot presence.

The taste is strong with the tropical fruit notes. Big pineapple and overripe mango. Some apricot and pepper hop notes as well. The malt is sweet and has honey notes. The combination of the tropical fruit hop notes and the sweet malt lead to a very sweet beer. The bitterness from the hops helps offset this but it is a bit too sweet for my liking.

Moderate body with prickly carbonation. Quite sweet on the palate but its not cloying as there is enough of a bitter offset. Almost sticky but not quite.

This beer walks a fine line on being too sweet and undrinkable. It doesn't get there but I much rather have the regular version of this beer or the Sucks! The malt is a bit too beefy and sweet. I figure it is the bigger wheat malt bill.
