25.4 ounce bomber poured into 16-ounce glass.

A: Half a finger of white head tops light gold, semi-transparent beer. Lovely lacing.

S: Grapefruit explosion, tangerine, cut grass, pine and hops.

T: Starts with the coniferous tree taste, switches to the citrus, then back to the coniferous tree. Very bitter, hoppy finish. Hoppy all around.

M: medium-bodied, high acidity and bitterness. Medium carbonation. Packing heat - slick.

O: >100 IBUs - i'm a hophead who has built up a tolerance to this hoppiness, and this still is going to kill my tastebuds for the day. Just extremely hoppy and bitter.

bottle purchased from Total Beverages in Murfreesboro, TN.

appearance: amber orange with white 2 finger head

smell: intense west coast hops; very piney, slight citrus, earthy, grapferuit, even a hint of lemon

taste: Hops. Hops. Hops. West coast style, very earthy, resinous, piney, very bitter and dry aftertaste, but very smooth and enjoyable. Heavy notes of grapefruit over power the initial taste. The aftertaste sort of resembles applejuice.

mouthfeel: not very carbonated, very smooth

overall: As a hop head, this hits the spot. Personally, while very similar, I like this better than Ruination. And for half the price, this will now be a daily drinker for me. Thank you Lagunitas, never had a bad beer from them, and the prices are unbeatable. This is a very hoppy, west coast style DIPA beer that does not disappoint.

Poured from bottle into curved pint glass.

A - Dark golden, almost copper look to it. 1/4 inch head which has not gone away after 15 minutes. Average lacing.

S - Very floral smell, grassy, pine.

T- Extremely hoppy and bitter. Similar to smell, grassy taste, malty at the back end making it very smooth.

M - Little carbonation, very thick, coats the mouth, but not unpleasant at all.

Overall - This is my first time trying this beer, and it was much hoopier than expected. If it were slightly more carbonated, it would be much smoother beer. But for what it is, very good, especially at it's price point.
