On tap at Beer Revolution in Oakland.
A - Nice warm brown with a warmed single finger head that departed quickly.
S - Hopsextravaganza. That good. This baby is loaded with piney strength. Think boreal forest.
T - really heavy hitter with lots of weight. This is not a beer for the delicate palette. Lots of malt and lots of hops. Doesn't hold a candle to the Hop Stoopid, which is just a much nicer, more balanced beer without the kick in the arse.
M - heavy. maybe a touch syrup-y. Felt slightly under carbonated.
O - Let me start by saying that Lagunitas is my favorite brewery. This beer feels slightly overdone. Too much, too think, too big for my taste even as an imperial IPA. Sorry Lagunitas, I think this one isn't as desirable as many others you brew.
Serving type: on-tap
