A- As clear as water with a golden-orange, light-amber color. Nice, big, orange-cream colored head with some bigger bubbles and a frothy consistency. Nice retention and lacing.

S- Sweet, tropical fruit salad covered in hops. Mostly American hops common to west coast ales. Cascade, Amarillo, maybe some Chinook for that pine touch.

T- Sweetness is minimal for a DIPA and the bitterness tops the charts. Nothing is really overpowering or cloying though. Unless one's not a hop head. But then why would one pick up this brew with 102 I.B.U. 4 U? Overall impression is piney/grapefruit bitterness on top of fruity esters like pineapple and melon(cantaloupe?).

M- Very clean with a light body for a DIPA of 1.085 O.G. Carbonation is also light and foamy.

D- This goes quick for a substantial DIPA. Even without food. Good with Romano cheese nonetheless.

Great beer from Lagunitas. Totally changes my view of hop extracts.

A hideously underrated beer. By far the best Lagunitas has to offer.

Pours a burnished amber/copper. Large white foam head. Smell of pine and grapefruit. Oh boy!

Taste is much more complex, a real solid grapefruit backing, with some sweet malt, and a ton of tropical flavors. I mean, out of this world with pineapple, citrus, papaya?, and who knows what else. Just very well balanced and completely delicious.

I highly recommend. Great lively mouthfeel.
