Super spicy. Super Piney. I've come to love and expect a strong piney, hoppy presence in all their beers. This one hits hard. It's big time. A beer some breweries would put into a 4 pack and charge the same price, $9.99. Not Lags, they give ya 6 for 10 and they all pack a punch like you just dove on a hop grenade to save your comrades. Drink it.

Exactly what you think it will be. Balanced yet bold. Couldn't have more than one.

Big piney hop presence in the nose and taste, what you'd expect from a Lagunitas DIPA.

A tasty malt backbone matches up to the powerhouse hops of this one to make it a really delicious and surprisingly drinkable for an %8.2 DIPA. The hops have a bit of citrus fruity thing that matches up well.

Lagunitas does it again with their IPAs.
