22oz bottle purchased at Mid Columbia Wine & Spirits in Kennewick, Washington. No freshness date, just the usual Lagunitas hyperbole.

Pours an orangey color that takes on a rust-like hue when held up to the light. Big, creamy white head, that leaves lots and lots of lace. Good head retention, medium clarity.

Big citrusy aroma that reminds one of tangerines and grapefruit. There’s also some more bitter, piney elements that are more in the background.

Although the tangerine-like aroma translates into the flavor, there’s much more bitter hop flavor than one would expect. There’s also a decent malt presence that provides some backbone without getting in the way of the hops. Nice, dry smack to the palate at the swallow.

Medium bodied, with a slick, resiny mouthfeel.

A very tasty beer. It took me a long time to get around to trying it, but I think it was worth the wait.

Poured from a bomber into to pint glass.

A - Great clear Orange color. I did an awful job pouring the beer so there was only a thin head but it still managed to leave great lacing on the glass.

S - Awesome nose. Big hop aromas floral and citrus big time. Hardy any sweetness, all hops.

T - Great hop flavor with tons a grapefruit taste. Hops hit you right away then slightly yield to some sweetness. On the finish there is more hops that really taste exactly like the smell of the beer. It seems like the beer comes full circle. A quite tasty beer.

M - I do wish it was just slightly more carbonated but its not a deal breaker what so ever. Other wise it has a nice light feel that is dry enough to make you want another sip. In the time it has taken me to write this up I have gone from a full pint to about one inch of beer left.

O - Solid Solid brew. Gotta give it a try if your a fan of Lag or ipas in general.

22 poured into a pilsner.

A - crystal clear, not quite copper, maybe a light amber in color. head lasts and lasts; even at the bottom of the glass there's a solid 1/3 of an inch, with rings all down the side - looks very inviting

S- oily hops right up front, a hint of sweetness and grapefruit, a bitterness at the end that says not to sip, but to drink up!

T - thought i was gonna sip this one, but it really goes better when it's drank faster. full mouthfuls are a wash of hops, again a bit of grapefruit goodness. bitterness is just a tad too strong to make sipping an option for me. not really sensing any alcohol, which makes it potentially a bit of a surprise, given its abv.

M - smooth, a bit oily in a pleasing way. good, if a bit unsophisticated in its simplicity.

O - glad i finally tried this one. another solid offer from lagunitas, though a bit one dimensional . . . but i think it's presented that way, so i think they achieved their goal.
