This brew pours a clear straw color which you can see clear through. There is a light 1/2 finger head which is a foamy white color. Moderate lacing on the glass and lots of carbonation.
The smell is strong with pine, melon, grapefruit, tobacco and sweet malts.
The taste follows the nose with each hop taste hitting the palate in succession with the sweet malt backbone ever present. Lagunitas did a great job of blending everything together.
The mouthfeel is smooth and tangy. There is some piney hop residue left on the tongue after swallowing.
Overall this is another winner from Lagunitas. This is a DIPA which is almost sessionable. All of the tastes and smells blend together well. Try it.

32 oz bottle - poured into a porter goblet.
A - Golden. White head on the pour. Mellows into a thin consistent lace. light haze and clean.
S - Grapefruit, hops, faint bread.
T - Follows the smell. Grapefruit up front. Well balanced with yeast and a mild bready maltiness. Finish is crisp and semi bitter and refreshing. Cannot detect the alcohol.
M - Medium body. very nice on the palate.
O - I don't normally seek out hoppy beer. Picked this one up on a world beer tour challenge and glad I did. Really nice and enjoyable especially based on the fact that its a complete opposite of my favor of porters and stouts. Would definitely recommend and will buy again. Looking forward to an easy finish of the 32 oz bottle.
