4.58/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The beer is tangerine orange color with a deep cream-colored head. Excelllent lacing and retention. The bear is slightly cloudy.

The aroma is nicely hoppy; with a orange peel dominating. The yeast and malt aromas are muted with the yeast slightly more noticeable than the malt. A hint of clove adds some complexity to the hop character.

The beer is lightly sweet with an ample citrusy hop fruitiness up front. But the complexity of this beer is a wonder. As the palate settles, I find juicy fruit bubble gum and bread. The finish has just a hint of clove and other spices.

Body is bordering on heavy. Texture is sticky and oily.

This beer is immensely drinkable. The complexity of the finish brings me back to the glass again and again. Although the texture is substantial, it is in no way overbearing. The beer reminds me of the Stone Begi-Calique with a reduced yeast profile. I liked that beer quite a bit as well, if I remember correctly. This beer is excellent. It combines two of my favorite styles: American IPA and Strong Belgian ales. Good job Lagunitas.
