Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light to medium coppery amber with a half finger white head that dissipates to a thick cap with good retention and lacing. Aroma of mild caramel malt, citrus and dank hops, tropical fruit and a spicy slightly sour component resembling rye. Flavor follows with a nice mildly caramel malt, citrus, piney and somewhat dank hops, tropical and citrus fruit, finishing with citrus rind and herbal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with hints of creaminess. A nicely balanced, flavorful IPA, as I expect from Lagunitas. Not as mouth numbing as some of their other hop bombs, but the great melding of a pleasant malt base with interesting hops flavors works quite well. Rarely disappointed by this brewery, and this one is excellent.

Poured into tulip glass- a good three-finger fluffy white head. Clear golden color. Left some good lacing all the way down.

Smell is great with a fruity, citrusy aroma and a touch of bready notes, with a bit of flowery tinges as well.

The taste is just like the smell, with a lot of fruity flavors up front and a nice pine bit to finish.

Mouthfeel is just perfect, almost light for a DIPA, and not harsh, just the right amount of carbonation to let you know you've had something special

Overall, this is another home run from Lagunitas, pretty close to being on a par with Sucks.

Bottled 7/18/14

Clear light gold with frothy 2 finger head.

Big grapefruit smell, a lot of citrus. All hops here. very much like Sucks.

Taste again is big citrus bite and tang of grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Moderate amount of bitterness. Just right. A little caramel sweetness keeps it from being too bitter. its been a little while since I had Sucks but this seems almost identical.

Moderate carbonation and light to moderate body. not too slick and finishes quite clean for a DIPA.

Really like this beer and fills in he gap of the year when here is no Sucks to be found. Lagunitas does it again.
