Tasted in a snifter from draft at Consume on May 3, 2018. This beer is a HUGE un-freakin'-filtered Oat-and-Wheat-mashed, hop-blasted Double IPA. We double dry-hopped this beast with some Loral 291, Hallertau Blanc, Citra and Galaxy hops for that extra double punch.

Had on tap. First off I love the beers that are not afraid to take risks. I especially like the ones like this that succeed in their vision! Has the patented single ipa flavors from the west coast, golden like hops with some spicey and piney ones along with tropical and citrus fruits complimenting. Meanwhile, the body and the taste really take on a more oaty and heavier feel to add fun creamy and grainy texture. Great experiment!

5/3/18: $6 16 ounce pour into jar at Lagunitas' Chicago Brewery. Cloudy straw color pour, razor thin head capped off and lacing. Wheat and hops aroma, lemon, very nice. Lemon bitter dry taste, excellent. Carbonation holds well, dry mouth feel, excellent. Overall excellent offering.

On tap at Salinger's in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a hazy golden orange color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like a tangerine hop cloud, with peach, mango, pine, grass, and and lemon.

This is a really great IPA- I'm glad to see Lagunitas can roll with the times and make a hype-y IPA that works well. It's so pillowy and soft, like a sheep made out of tangerines and peaches. There's a little bit of bitterness, but not much, and just tons of juicy hop flavor.

This is soft, creamy, and super drinkable, with a good level of carbonation.

I am really impressed with this one- I always forget how much Lagunitas floats my boat.
