look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Brilliantly clear, copper- orange. Fizzy head that dissipates quickly but leaves nice lacing.

S: Piney and grapefruity, with some caramel. Always a good sign.

T: Delivers well on the aroma, sweetness of citrus fruit followed by bready malt and then a respectable-but-not-overwhelming dose of hops. Could be a little sweeter on the front end.

M: super-smooth, with caramelly richness and frothy carb. Nice.

O: an excellent DIPA. One of my go-to's, Especially considering that it's relatively cheap compared to a lot of its rivals: I have found this beer for just over four dollars for a bomber.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz bomber poured into wine glass.

appearance-pours a clear apricot, with a thick white foamy head. Nice lacing showing up around the glass. 4.25

Aroma-As expected citrus hops dominate the nose up front. Lots of orange and grapefruit. Apricot, pineapple, mango, pine, brown sugar. Not too complex. 3.75

Taste-Strong bitter citrus hops, tropical fruits are up front and in charge. Mango is killing it here. Then it turns woodsy, with pine coming on strong. Very satisfying taste for a double, strong and bitter, reminds me a lot of stones enjoy by. 4.5

Feel-medium to full bodied, ABV is noticeable even though its not too high. 22oz bomber will be tough to finish by myself. 4

Overall-year round doubles don't get too much better than this. This compares very well to stones enjoy by, though the price point is better. I wish I could get this in my area, but instead I have to drive about an hour north to pick this up. Next time ill stock up. Worth the $5.99 price tag for sure. 4.25

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.
