Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Costco in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $18.99 for a variety 4-pack of bombers
Purchased: Nov. 6, 2015

Misc.: N/A

Poured an orangeish, caramel, semi-clear color with three fingers of khaki-white, frothy head. Some light bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Excellent spiderweb, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Very good-to-great retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.50)

Smelled sharp grapefruit zest, lemon, dank pine, lime grass, Simcoe, Citra, sweet tangerine, some herbal, faint Cascade and caramel. (Smell - 4.00)

First taste reminded of a better version of New Belgium Ranger IPA. Got boozy Citra, dank pine, veggies, herbal, grassy, lime, lemon zest, Cascade, tropical, earthy mango rind, tangerine, resin, Nugget and caramel. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Astringent, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This was actually better than I thought it would be for some reason. Nice IIPA, especially for the price. I’d have it again. I feel like I may have underrated it a tad. (Overall - 3.75)

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear dark orange, nearly amber, with a thin off-white head that eventually leaves spots of lace down the glass.

Very hop-forward aroma, with the aroma exploding with grapefruit and pine aromas combining together nicely.There's a bit of sweetness but it doesn't come off as a major component of the beer's nose.

The flavor is moderately bitter, with big notes of grapefruit and orange, along with some sticky pine. The malt profile is a touch sweet, with a hint of caramel.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, though crisp and incredibly drinkable.

Better than Primordial--this stuff is awesome!

Canned on date of 10/16/15 (my birthday!)

Appearance - Pours relatively clear and golden sap in color with an off-white, finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds. Lacing consists of patches of small, spotty clumps around the glass.

Smell - Citrus and mango hit the nose first. Faint pineapple, and malts hint at bready sweetness.

Taste - This is a mango bomb. Lesser notes of orange with faint pineapple zing. Subtle, generic white bread sweetness. The finish displays a fair amount of pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Near full in body with moderate carbonation. Slick, smooth delivery.

Overall - One of the more uniquely flavored DIPA's, but a bit too reserved in the secondary attributes makes this a bit of a one-trick pony. Somewhat akin to New Belgium Rampant, only that one is peach-dominant.

Hop Diggity - Mother Earth Brew Co

American Double IPA
8% ABV

Appearance- Amber with some haziness but not much, Head is small and doesn't retain itself long.

Aroma- Citrus hops, underwhelming a little bit. Maybe some pine behind the citrus

Taste- Citrus and melon definitely. Not much bitterness, a very balanced double. Wish some more hops came through. Maybe a little breadiness from the malts.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodies that lingers for a few seconds. Moderately carbonated as well.

Overall- Will drink again but wont target if other options are available. I think it’s a good DIPA for people who are not big HopHeads.
