A – It pours a hazy orange-amber with a moderate off-white head. Thin sticky lacing clings.

S – The aromatics are generally grapefruit-y, overripe citrus and a thickly sweet malt. It smells a tad off-balance.

T – It tastes way off-balance. A ton of grapefruit rind flavors, sweet caramel, and hot alcohol just clash. They just trainwreck.

M – Foamy and full.

D – This is one of the only times I have ever referred to alcohol tasting too strong; it is seldom an issue for me. But when a beer is unbalanced, any element can be irking.

Maybe the only Imperial IPA I want nothing to do with. And one of two hoppy beers from Lagunitas that I didn't enjoy.

Pours a hazy orangey amber body with a huge chunky beige head which settles out into thick lacing and puddly foam.

Scents of funky orange peel and bicuity yeast and dryish malt.

A bit harsh with very muddled malts and stale tasting citrus-orange hops notes. Finishes with a bitter herbal/ chemical taste.

Medium body and carbonation.

Overall a great disappointment after I enjoyed a lil sumpin sumpin so much. Just kinda over bitter and stale tasting. I would attribute this to age but there's no freshness date and the bottle showed no sign of sitting around label looked new and no dust etc. I'll likely revisit this when I go to the brewery and re review if things are different.
