An excellent double IPA. Pours a deep gold and you can pick up a bit of citrus in the fresh smell. Taste is smooth and full-bodied. A little caramel comes through so there is some sweetness but it is not overwhelming - it's just right. Great beer.

Pours a hazy gold with a thick head and glue like lacing. Nose is full of citrus, hops, wheat, and some floral tones. The flavors are impressive, this is a home run of an DIPA. Loads of hops, sweet citrus, some wheat undertone that gives it some chewiness, and malty finish with slight bitterness/dryness. I am really impressed with this beer, it is one of the best DIPA I had, the flavors are amazing.

Pours a crystal clear deep gold/pale amber with abundant effervesce streaming up from the bottom of the glass. The pour produces 2+ fingers of white, foamy, somewhat lasting head that leaves rings & wisps of sticky lace. The lacing left on the glass as it is consumed is impressive. Aroma is heavenly tropical, floral & citrus hoppy backed by caramel malt & cereal, with a thin hint of butterscotch. Taste is juicy tropical fruit with notes of earthy, herbal & some citrus hops backed by a wet caramel & honey sweetness. Finishes with pepper, tropical/caramel sweet, low level citrus, a hint of pine bitterness that intensifies & lingers for a while in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied with moderate-high carbonation, wet & juicy, mouth filling, slightly syrupy, mid-sip prickle that last beyond the swallow. Whooo-We, mighty nice!

A little sumpin extra ale pours a bronze color, with a long lasting and lacing head. Creamy fresh hoppy aroma. Flavor has a nice big fresh and wet IPA flavor, but finishes very sweet and earthy. Good body and feel. Overall, big flavors, just a little too sweet for my tastes.

Outstanding double IPA. It has great concentration and a very fine texture. The malt lends a shiny golden color. Bone dry with forceful hop flavors and bitterness. A great example of Lagunitas' focused style. [12 oz. bottle into a stange glass]

Couldn't figure out how fresh this was as the date on the bottle was not easy to decode. It pours amber with a huge head and awesome retention and lacing. The aroma and taste however were devoid of any hops, a sure sign of an old bottle. Medium body and mild carbonation bite. I'm sure this is a great beer but if the dating was easier to interpret then it would be easier for us consumers to figure out when it's worth purchasing.
