I am revisiting many beers that I used to drink often, & then kinda forgot since joining BA. Always enjoyed this one, drinks so smooth for a DIPA. Clear, amber color, with a foamy head. Streak lacing. The aroma is grain, stone and tropical fruit, and some orange. The flavor is citrus, caramel malt, ripe fruit, grass, spice, and herbal notes. It is hop forward, juicy and resinous. Slightly acrid, dry finish. A hint of alcohol vapor. A decent beer, definitely worth trying.

Each sip of this goes down easier and easier. Killer hop influence but not too bitter.

L: Golden orange, white colored medum sized head, spotty lacing.

S: Excellent citrus fruity hops; grapefruit, tangerine, mango.

T: Excellent flavor, unique, barely fruity but nicely hoppy on the front, nicely sharp and piney bitter bite on the finish.

F: Crisp. On the lighter side of DIPA, good bite.

O: Very good and worth your time. My second offering from Lagunitas and I'm impressed (first being Sumpin Sumpin Ale). Nothing stands way out, nothing overpowering, but every aspect is very enjoyable.

Wow. I have lavished praise on Lagunitas Maximus in this forum, but I think this is better. I had it once before and wasn't blown away, but I must have chanced upon a really good batch this time because everything is coming together for me now: tangy hops hit tempered by the sweet malty backbone, all in service of disguising the healthy alcohol sting. Even better balanced for me than Maximus, which is saying a lot. In conclusion: love me some West coast-style DIPAs! Cheers and stuff.

If this is close to the Pliny, its great. Wish I could get more NEIPA. Southern Tier unfiltered was awesome. Ballast Point too clean. A brewery at this price point and quality will thrive in the coming quality-brew bubble. Great for them. Great job!

A good go-to DIPA when I want something hoppy, juicy, and a little heavier in the summer.

L: Clear golden-orange, white head, lots of lacing.

S: Pine resin, tangerine, golden malt

T: Piney, grapefruit, sweet citrus, pale malt, a touch of booze. Melon, mango, more pine. Finishes bitter and clean, and little dry.

F: Sticky enough to feel like a lot of DIPAs, but thin and dry enough to be an easy-drinker.

Overall, it's nothing you haven't had if you've had a lot of West Coast IPAs/DIPAs. Piney, citrusy, a little tropical, flavorful, and a little boozy. Clean and consistent though, and worth a buy if you dig the style.
