Poured from a big bottle (1 pt, 6 fluid oz) into a pint glass. Didn't touch it until it sat at room temperature for a little bit . Tremendous beer!

Appearance - Translucent, orange-color, beautiful; very nice 3-finger head (at least) after pour. Head sustained itself for quite some time with nice lacing around the glass throughout. Good looking beer...

Smell - Orange, grapefruit; generally fruity-smell; tangerine-like; I can smell the hops.

Taste - Tremendous; a hops mouth-assault initially which calms down after a few sips or so. Perfectly balanced hops and fruit taste.

Mouthfeel - Very manageable considering this beer is 102 International Bitterness Units (IBUs). Either I am getting more and more comfortable with hoppy beers or this hop-stoopid beer is hoppy yet smooth! Bitter and piney but not too overwhelming.

Overall - Incredible beer. I've been reading about Lagunitas beers for some time now and I can now confirm that this brewing company is the real deal. I will seek this beer out again. Not too hoppy (I don't really consider myself a hop-head) but an impressive blend of hoppiness with refreshing fruit taste. Great beer!

Second time trying this beer. Had it a little over a year ago while still getting into ipas and didn't really care for it much. So here's round two- bomber to a snifter. No visible freshness date

Pours a nice deep gold with mild carbonation. A finger of foam which only stuck around for a minute or two, good lacing though

Smells of strong hop, grapefruit, citrus undertones and pine coming together with a really sweet malt. All the standard smells which balance out quite well, the aroma is pretty rich as well. Above the average smelling dipa

Taste of upfront piny hops followed with a blast of citrus and a strong sweet caramel malt. Some floral earthy notes are present as is a hint of alcohol. Balance is furthest towards the hops, but translates across the palate well

Mouth is a nice medium body with a crisp dry finish. Carbonation leaves a nice tingle on the tongue and leaves the mouth wet and sticky. Quite bitter, very drinkable

Overall this was a much better experience. I don't know if the other bottle was old or if my palate was just yet to develop, but this is one of the more solid imperial ipas available in my state. Definitely going to buy again

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

(4.5) A: Beautiful slightly hazy copper with a stark white foam head that appears very dense. Long lasting retention and very clingy. Excellent stuff.

(4.25) S: Dry pine, rich buttered bread, tangy grapefruit, mellow and sweet pineapple, and spices. Quite a bold and potent mix of aromas that definitely edge towards the hoppier side. A generally damp and earthy vibe.

(4.0) T: Echoing those great aromas with a taste that incorporates dry pine, grapefruit, pineapple, and toffee. For 100+ IBU’s this has quite a malt richness that is keeping the bitterness appropriate, albeit this is still a bitter one. Buttered bread-like malt is very welcoming along with a slight acidic (lemon) finish.

(4.25) M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Quite dry but doesn’t leave your mouth feeling overly bitter as I would expect. Finishes very clean.

(4.25) D: A great DIPA that's well executed and a good benchmark for the style with standout qualities across the board. Definitely worthy of a purchase, and then a future repurchase.

Poured in a tulip at cellar temp ( 52F)

Beautiful honey-amber color with a one finger head.

The aroma is a mild, grapefruit with light sweetness. I was expecting a stronger aroma,
but it was pleasant.

The mouth feel was excellent- deceivingly smooth for a beer with 102 IBUs- If I concentrated on the mouth feel I could taste the heavy carbonation. The mouth feel on this beer reminds of smoother DIPAs such as Maharaja.

There is a smooth transition from the mouth feel to the taste: pleasant grapefruit with added sweetness. I like the sweetness aspect of the finish, a tasting element not often present in most DIPAs.

Excellent beer from a great brewery. All elements of the beer from the color to the taste blend in balance.
