Appearance: Cloudy yellowish orange. Decent lace after frothy white.
Smell: Apricot and grapefruit.
Taste: Pepper, bitter citrus, and dry.

I really like this. It does mirror Raging Bitch from Flying Dog. It's just that unique, sour, peppery something with a bite. I'd drink it again.

I'm close minded so take that into account. Can't get over the Belgian yeast taste. Have to focus with each sip or get a gag reflex. Otherwise not bad.

Not bad for the high ABV, I'd drink it again. Good job Lagunitas.

Very odd wild flavor...nothing is too distinguishable enough to get a true sense of the brew. Good, not great, drinkable for the abv but my taste buds aren't that impressed. Uneventful as a Belgian IPA or wild ale
