12 oz. bottle poured into a delirium tremens tulip snifter.
A - Pour is copper with a nice white head. Color is clouded by floating sediment and constant bubbling.
S - Smell is huge citrus, with grapefruit and tart orange. There is a hint of sweet pine and floral notes.
T - Taste matches the nose but does have a nice trus sweetness to it from some clever malt wok that is not present in the nose.
M - Nice and tangy. The bitterness and sweetness are very well balanced and do not cause one or the other to linger on the palate.
Overall, this beer is awesome. I have not had much exposure to lagunitas in the past. WIth my recent tastings of several of their beers, this is by far my favorite. Though it doesn't come out and call itself one, this is an awesome imperal or double IPA. This may be close to the top of this category for me. Watch out Bells Hopslam and Breckenridge 471 Small Batch!

This is a very good brew. I'll admit I didn't read the label all the way since I just am a fan of the brewery when I grabbed this one. It's a tad to dry and hoppy for my taste. Beautiful citrus ale color, lots of bubbles, a nice thin typical ale head. Very refreshing taste and smell. The smell really previews the hop taste that is to come. Taste is very dry and hop flavored. Lightly sweet and citrusy though. Pretty easy drinking, if you enjoy a dry hoppy brew this is probably going to be up your alley. It's a little to hop for my likings. Very high abv, so considering that it's very drinkable. Very refreshing, would highly recommend this.
