A: After pouring the brew in my Peticolas pint glass, it gives a rich, thick head about three fingers thick despite my gradual and tilted pour. The hops definitely create that lovely sud. It's got a nice golden amber hue, and it leaves some nice thick lacing on the sides.

S: Uh, yeah, you can certainly smell those 102 I.B.U.s of hops from here. In fact, the acridity may be a bit strong, and I'm not one to shy away from the lovely plants. Pine, citrus, freshly mown grass, and spiked grapefruit come to me on first sniff.

T: That fresh mown grass flavor carries on into the flavor, and it's got a decent carbonated bite to it. Smelt wheat comes to mind, too, and it leaves a dry, acrid aftertaste.

M: Because of the ridiculous hop levels, I surmise, it's got a nice thickness to it that is strangely still smooth and fairly light. It's hard to describe, but it's got good character here.

O: Honestly, it's not as high in quality as I had expected from Lagunitas, but it clearly does something unique here. I'd try it again.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter. First time I have had this in 4 years. Color is light orange gold with 2 finger white head. Nice retention with webbed lacing on my glass. The aroma is quite floral and citrusy with hints of light caramel malts in the background. Flavor follows the nose well with a mighty hop bite that is leveled from the sweeter malts. Perfect carbonation with a sticky medium fell and dry finish. Overall a a delicious IIPA that is welcome in the 12oz format.
