Wow, I could have this every morning for breakfast. It was like grapefruit juice only better because it's beer.

Poured this into a Sam Adams pint at an approx temp of 45

It poured a clear copper/amber color with an off white foamy head that never went away.

S: This was just a great smelling beer. It had a well defined hops aroma that was full of pine, citrus oil, and a touch of malty sweetness.

T: I was expecting a pine flavor; instead I got a sweet grapefruit. There was also a bit of dried apricot. The hops were in the forefront, and were lazily being supported by a malty sweetness - maybe raisin or something dark and sugary.

Good drinkability. The ABV was well masked and it had a pleasant aftertaste. The bitterness was on the mellow side.

Overall I thought this was a great beer, especially for the price. I would have liked a more malty presence but I would definitely have this one again.

A: pours a deep reddish orange with a finger of dense and rocky off white head that leaves excellent lacing as it fades to a small pool in a Duvel Tulip. I know it isn't the 'proper' glassware but let's face it, the beer is an off color DIPA
S: smells dank as all hell with some citrusy, piney and earthy notes
T: tastes of earthy hops, some pine and a bit of grapefruit with some caramel sweetness providing balance , some brown sugar, and slightly bready as well. swallow is big oily and bitter with a bit of residual sweetness and a slight toasty malt flavor
M: heavy side of medium in the mouth with somewhat prickly carbonation that helps mask the thickness of the beer, juicy hop finish
O: It's a big beautiful and hoppy red ale. it tastes good, is priced well and is very inoffensive and well made if you like hoppy beer. It's everything I'd expect from a lagunitas beer.
