3.5/5  rDev -17.3%

Consumed 8/18/14

A: Medium orange with some gold and honey tones - small, off-white head, fades to a wispy cap, leaves some nice streaks of lacing

S: Ripe oranges and tangerines with some grapefruit - some dank pine as well - above average sweetness with some booze and tropical fruity esters - wet pineapple and apricot

T: Plenty of citrus with ripe orange and grapefruit flesh - very juicy with some hints of tropical fruits - wet pine - lots of pith, moderately bitter - pale and caramel malts, lightly earthy - a bit too much cooked malt and the alcohol is overly apparent - wheat is far from obvious

M: Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky, kind of wet, lingering booze

O: A lil overrated, in my humble opinion

This is definitely reminiscent of its little cousin. Sister? Whatever. Unfortunately, much of the balance and charm is absent here. Pretty good overall, but Lagunitas has certainly made better DIPAs.
