Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers and alot of sediment. Aromas of citrus, apricot, grapefruit, peach, mango, pine, orange peel and a honey caramel malt. The flavor is of citrus and floral notes. Low bitterness. Some dankness with lots of orange, pine, and grapefruit peel. Medium body, good carbonation.

12oz bottle. Arome glass. Darker medium copper body, one finger white head. Smell is big citrus, grapefruit. Really nice hop aroma. Medium caramel. A bit of toasted biscuit. But mostly it's the citra playing around here. Flavour follows; more caramel comes out to play, but there is a nice big citrus hop presence in the backend. In some ways it starts approaching triple IPA territory, but certainly nicely balanced. Medium body, good carbonation, moderately bitter resin.

Tried this at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, CT. Tried this in a tulip glass and there wasn't much head. Mild carbonation with a rusty amber color. The aroma was bready and slightly moldy. The taste was surprisingly different from the average dipa. It was floral and tasted somewhat like an orange with bready notes. The pine and rind flavors typical of most ipa's was missing to an extent , but that was ok. Great beer.

This beer pours a pale copper with a large head. The aroma is softly fragrant, with notes of lemon peel, grapefruit peel, chamomile, white flowers, cracker malts, mandarin orange, and a bit of dusty hop character. The flavor is gentle, combining citrus and floral tones with very low bitterness. wit lots of mandarin orange and pine grapefruit peel and subtle flowery hints around the edges. The mouthfeel is light with frothy carbonation. Overall a nice beer, with lots of great flavor, though I could use a bit more bitterness for balance.

Appearance: Gold, lots of particles, ok head.

Smell: Danky, citrus.

Taste: Mildly sweet citrus to start then a little more bitterness than expected. A little bit of dankness in the taste too. Full feeling.

Overall: Lagunitas makes solid hoppy beers and I needed some beer for the week. Big citra taste and a bit of old school double IPA bitterness action here. Works for me!

A: Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Lots of citrus and tropical fruit up front along with hints of pine and bready maltiness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and tropical fruit notes and then picks up a light piney bitterness and bready malt. Finishes with lingering citrus and even some bubble gum notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very good DIPA with loads of citra. Definitely comes as advertised and is super easy to drink. Definitely check it out

Pours a very attractive clear orange with a finger of white head that leaves nice thin patches of lace behind as it slowly settles into a thin layer of white filmy bubbles. 4.25

Smell is mandarin orange, herbal earthy slightly dank, papaya, and some hints of grapefruit rind. 4

Taste follows but not as good as the nose for me. Definetly some marijuana, tangerine, earthy cut grass, and a little bitter grapefruit in the finish. 3.75

Mouthfeel is about medium, plenty of life, a tad sticky on the palate, and drinks plenty easy for 8% ABV. 3.75

Overall I think it is a solid beer at a great value, $16.99 a 12 pack. Bottled early July and for fans of dank not hazy DIPAs a must try beer. 3.75

187 8 printed in black ink on the neck of the bottle, hard to see. Translates to 7/6/18, just over 4 weeks since brewing.

Pours a clear light amber with lots of particulate and a finger of quickly dissipating off-white head. Nose of strong citrus; notes of apricot, yellow grapefruit, peach, mango, pine, orange peel and a honey/caramel malt. Big citrus peel and grapefruit rind on first taste, bigger bitter punch than a normal Lagunitas IPA. Notes of the nose completely carry over, with an addition of some lemon. There's an increased potency to the pine resin, apricot and grapefruit compared to the nose. Great balance of sweet malt and citrus bitterness, with tropical notes in the background. Resinous medium body and undetectable 8% ABV, so crushable; dangeous! If I could get this fresh, it'd be in the fridge year round.
