This has to be one of the best DIPA for the price.
Half finger of off white head. Color is s a clear golden orange.
Taste profile is of big juicy hops. Grapefruit and citrus fruits mixed with some pineapple. Dank hops. A mix of floral and pine. Some bready malts to balance things out.
Mouthfeel is bitter, but not too bitter. Not very sticky which is nice.
Overall, this beer is rock solid. I normally don't like Lagunitas, but this beer will be in my fridge every winter.

With a solid pour I get about an inch and a half of tan colored head. Body is a golden honey toned hue that is a bit lighter then I would have expected with all the grains in this brew. Head fades slowly and leaves a consistent spotty curtain of lace.
Nose is vibrant with grainy hops that are both floral and resinous. Hops are almost like a mix of marmalade and candied fruit on the snouser.
From the moment I first tried this beer I really fell in love with how well the grain bill works to carry and balance the hops. This beer has real legs on the palate as the flavors are carried wonderfully across the tongue. The hops are prickly and spicy with tones of pine, arugula, and rye. There is definitely a distinct malt balance here.
Mouthfeel is very pleasant and bready with a bit of spice feel. The rye stands out considerably on the back of the tongue as well, long after the sip. This is a wonderful beer. Please don't stop making it.
