Just a really good all-around beer. Solid head, good lacing. Smells fantastic, fully of flowery smelling hops. Tastes just like it smells, which is a good thing. Mouthfeel is almost there, almost a bit watery after the sip. Loving Lagunitas beers so far, highly recommend this brew.

A - Light amber color with a large, light, fluffy, sticky, white head. Really good retention leaving behind a nice layer of lace.

S - Nice sweet tangerine citrus. Decent amount of caramel/toffee sweet malt. Pine and slightly herbal/floral nose. Nice fruity hop aroma keeps showing up. Background notes of bready malt.

T - Fairly strong malt presence. Sweet caramel mixes with a slightly sharp alcohol and bitterness. Faint sweet bready notes in the back. Sweet tangerine and grapefruit citrus. Strong pine resin and bitterness mid-sip to finish. Hints of herbal and floral hops in the back. Finishes with a fairly bitter resinous flavor.

M - Light to medium body. Above average carbonation. Fairly slick with a bitter, dry finish.

D - Pretty balanced DIPA with a good malt presence. Strong bitterness and hint of alcohol hurts how drinkable it is. At times I feel it works and then at times I'm not a huge fan.

Notes: Not sure when this was bottled (Would really like this info on the bottle) but it was a little strong on the malt. Alcohol and bitterness quite present. I did like the hopping flavors from what I got. Not bad, and at times I really liked it, but it just didn't work all the time. It had enough promisse that I'd love to try it again, but only if I was sure of its freshness.
