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.

Pours a light golden. Heavy fresh hop scents emanating. Tasting Amarillo and centennial hops. Lots of fruit, pine, and some caramel. The 'extra wheat' creates a full feeling. The alcohol is well disguised, but there are hints within. Bottled from TJ's Columbus.

Outstanding brew. I can taste the grapefruit hops. Almost. sweet. Very drinkable at 8.5%. Delicious.

Poured from a 355ml bottle into a pint glass. Big three fingers of loose white head that peeled away pretty quickly. Looks like fine honey with tons of carb. Smells sweet and juicy. Really strange taste for a supposedly double IPA. Enough hops to fit the bill but the wheat character lends something totally different. An easy drinkin' 8.5%? Shiiiiiiiiiiit! God help us. Words, words, words. Enough already. Lagunitas rocks and this is another mold breaker that is well worth your hard earned cash. That's if you can find it. Not easy in rural BC but it can be done.
