Amber color leaning toward copper, thin white head with an ok lace. Smells like a pine forest and taste is piney and grapefruit. A solid West coast IPA, bitter and sweet, a little heat from the alcohol, way too easy to drink for an 8% beer. Definitely worth a try

Sticky dank and pine sap. Overripe mango and peach syrup. Firm caramel maltiness with touches of toffee. Finishes like earthy, dirty weed.

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.

Poured from a can into a pub glass...

Others have called this hazy. My pour was nearly clear with a nice fluffy white head. Good persistent lacing throughout.

Aroma is very hop (floral, mostly) forward. Malts and booze in the background.

The flavor is very malty, initially, but then the floral and citrus hops take over and bring it home. A nice balanced flavor, and a simple one as well.

The mouthfeel is excellent. Well carbonated, crisp, light, and mildly dry.

Overall, a nice DIPA.

So damn good, and totally tastes like a Lagunitas beer. Pretty remarkable how reliable a brewery they've been even after "selling out" and getting huge. And they're definitely the best value going.

Poured from a month-old can.

Clean, clear, effervescent, golden, and soapy in the glass.

Dank, citrusy, tropical, piney, grassy, and sweet on the nose.

Sweet but perfectly balanced, citrusy, bitter, bready, peachy, pithy, and long-lasting on the tongue.

Feel is substantial, soft, velvety, and coating, but you can tell it's a little "lighter" on the IIPA spectrum.

Lagy almost never disappoints me. And though this beer isn’t a game changer or envelope pusher, it’s just plain fantastic.

T - Dank hops, and bready malts. Very tasty

F - Medium body and carbonation

This is a fun beer Hard to pass up buying a six pack of cans with a nice low price. Citrus is powerful in the scent upon opening the can. Taste is maltier with a little boozy feel. You can taste this imperial iPA but you won’t feel it right away. Not bitter and kind of smooth as it warms. Enjoyable night time drink. Good stuff

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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!

Single Citra from Lagu. I’m in. Exactly what you want except lots of hop floaties. They don’t bother me other than the look. This one is a pile of citrus forward hops, malt to the back. I’ll snag a 12 the next time this rotates through

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear light golden pour with big foamy white head. Great lacing... a little sediment in the pour.

S: Light and citrusy.. lemon and orange rind.

T/F: Crackery malts/grains... pretty typical Lagunitas IPA feel. Citrusy and light hop profile. Modest bitterness... lighter floral character and a bit of resinous pine. Very balanced. Sticky on the tongue and medium bodied. ABV present... could be a bit better hidden.

O: A solid Lagunitas-style IPA. Good flavor and a strong blast of citra hops. A fun limited release that I'm glad we were able to snag in Pennsylvania.

Pours into a nonic a dull light to medium golden with a half finger white head that is gone pretty quickly.Bright and somewhat juicy aromas that are just a tad muted,some sweet alcohol is detected as well.A nice fruity shot up front on the palate with some grass and a hint of sweet onion coming thru as well,a caramel/biscuit maltiness lingers in the finish.Not overly sweet and it's got a nice bright fruity profile,would buy again.

12 oz can, has some info printed on the bottom, but it makes no sense to me.

Lightly hazed, lighter almond amber, moderate eggshell cap, leaves a fine bubble film, and ample low ringed sheeting.

Juicy sniff with oranges and light melon.

Brightly flavorful, with more citric juice, oranges, lemon/lime, and grapefruit. Crisp and tasty....real nice new brew from LAG...High quality shelfie...go get some

Gold to copper in color and extremely hazy. There's a fingernail of dishwater white. Massive wallop of citrus hop aroma along with some faint cedar. The flavor is packed with citrus and orange juice flavor. The mouth is fairly smooth for the ABV and style.

12 oz can from Tiger Mart (Clemson; $1.89) into a pint glass; repeated in January 2019.
Look: Golden body topped by a good head white head.
Hoppy and moderately complex aroma with piney and citrus notes dominating.
The flavor has moderately high strength for style but is, perhaps, a touch less bitter than average until the aftertaste. More fruity and piney than grassy.
Feel: medium-light body with lively, medium carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: excellent version of the style with very well hidden ABV and restrained bitterness.
