look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

poured into a snifter

fairly strongly carbonated at first, the larger bubbles soon become tiny ones. orangish color and a decent sized head. pretty decent lacing. piny hoppy smell that is typical of west coast ipas. slightly hoppy with hints of belgian spice and a slight alcohol burn to it. very dry with a strong aftertaste. definitely bitter. it's like someone spiked an ipa with some belgian spices by accident. the flavor is rather strange. mouthfeel is light with a weird aftertaste. i find this beer to be very weird. I'm not a fan of what is going on here.

2.48/5  rDev -39.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pours a light orange, clear with a big, light tan head with really good retention and lace.
Smell is odd for the style, very hippy with a light lemon note. Like standing in a lumber mill, the smell is that medicinal resin note. No malt detected.
Taste is very similar, hops and grapefruit with malt very light and late.
A warming at the swallow and the hops presence drops as fast as the beer down your throat. A relatively full body and a sharp effervescence up front. Aftertaste has some balance but still hop biased.
I suspect this brewer, like a few others (Rogue), hop heavier for the style than I think appropriate. If so, good to know ahead of time. Overall, though, its a good beer if a bit off style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Pours a clear light orange. Big off-white foam head.

Smells strongly of spices, weird belgian yeast, and some sickly bananas. Some yeast also.

Taste introduces some light citrus (sweet grapefruit) notes to the yeast/spices/banana notes. Okay ... kind of weird. Like an IPA meets hefeweizen yeasty Belgian thang.

Well carbonated. But, primarily unpleasant.

Serving type: on-tap

2.58/5  rDev -37.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

A: This has a striking clarity. Bright and clear orange. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Nice lacing as well.
S: Typical Lagunitas. Big grapefruit, citrus, and resiny pine hops. That is it.
T: Follows the nose. Tons of grapefruit bitterness, citrus, and resin. Dank, musky, kind of perfume like hops. Isn't this suppose to be a Belgian Strong Ale?
M/D: A medium body and fairly low on the carbonation. Lightly syrupy, slick and soapy as well. Lots of bitterness, and plenty of burning alcohol makes this hard to sip on. I am struggling to finish the bomber.

Fermented with Westmalle yeast according to the label, but there is nothing Belgian or Wild to this one. Just a standard DIPA, and pretty much standard Lagunitas as well. Hop heads rejoice, everyone else move on.
