appearance- Light amber in color and pretty clear throughout. Pours a soapy/foamy two inch tall head.

aroma- Onion, grapefruit, mango, and some grainy wheat malt in the background.

taste- Juicy hops at first with sweet citrus and mango showing up at first. There's a shift mid palate to pungent grapefruit and onions which takeover into the finish. Bitterness is pretty mild throughout. As far as the malt goes there's a bit of caramel sweetness at first then dry grainy wheat malt in the back end.

feel- Medium/full bodied, medium carbonation, and a mainly dry finish with a small amount of residual sweetness and hop resin left over.

overall- Really interesting range of flavors going on here from the juicy hops to the pungent onion/grapefruit combo and the dry crackerish/wheat malt. The onion can leave an awkward aftertaste at times, but overall the mix of juicy/pungent hops makes for a great flavor profile. A great dipa for the style, definitely a unique offering from lagunitas long list of ipas, and one that is worth purchasing again.

12 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is an orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Resiny pine, herbal, spicy, caramel, and toasted malts.

Taste: Same as above. Flavorful, super smooth, mild bitterness, and delicious.

Mouthfeel: Super smooth, slightly sweet, light bitterness, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Love this beer. Surprised I haven't reviewed it befire, but still awesome. Finishing off the remaining beers today.

Nice DIPA from Lagunitas. Hits all the right notes for me. Very floral and citrusy, leaning towards the intensely sweet side of the IPA spectrum. Well-masked alcohol, fairly easy-drinking with pleasant carbonation. Recommended.

Looks crispy with it's orange-y shades of gold and small head. Lacing is not bad but I don't look at my hoppy beers as much as I do with white/wheat beers (it's always exciting to be able to insert funkier words like 'hazey' or 'straw'). Hops=straight to that first sip.

Upon first sip, I am welcomed by a reminder of the dried beef sold on Zion Rd in Singapore. Asian countries usually have these sweeter versions of beef jerky and this one smells exactly like it. Sweet & Salty<3

This one has that special twist to it's hops that is unique to Lagunitas. It is apparent in all their beers.

Unique Vodka finish on the tongue and through the nose. Feels great to be drinking this beer:)

Had this on tap at district tap. Nose and aroma were strong of lemon citrus. A fairly strong taste of booze, no problem with that. Color wasnt my favorite. A little light and clear for the flavor. Very good other than that.
