Purchased at the Whole Foods in Omaha. Poured into a tulip.

A: Pour reveals a head of about two fingers with an SRM of about 10. Head recedes to a one finger, poofy white cap and leaves a gorgeous lacing on the side of the glass.

S: Lemons, oranges, peaches and even a little bit of strawberry with slight malt. Can I get this as an air freshener?

T: Hop bitterness. Lemon rind, pineapple, peaches, mango and ripe pear followed by biscuity malts with a slightly pepperyness and more tangy bitter hops that want to be your friend. Faint alcohol taste remains with an ever so slight funkyness. Like hop fruit juice.

M: Medium, creamy mouthful that drinks like a slightly pulpy orange juice. Dry finish.

O: My first Lagunitas beer and what an introduction! Don’t hesitate to pick it up if you see it. Sets the bar for Belgian Style IPA's.

Poured into a snifter

A: Clear amber with a slight tan head that dissipates pretty fast. Decent lacing.

S: Grapefruit, hops. Light smell of malts and yeast. Citrusy.

T: A nice blend of malts and hops with a slight yeasty finish. Smooth, fruity. The alcohol slinks in for a subtle buzz.

M: Light to medium. Good carbonation.

O: Really enjoyed this one. I'm not a hop head, but the blending made this a delicious quaff.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Almost white head, high retention on a slightly hazy, golden body. Suddsy lacing, receding to reveal oily clear, sticky resinous lacing. Double barreled lacing? Cool. Aroma is a beautiful fruity, citrusy grapefruit with some malty sweetness, candi sugar and belgian yeasty goodness. Taste is wonderfully hopped, piney and grapefruit, mild sweetness with a fruity, yeasty. Ever so slight alcohol presence, amazing for 8.8%. Tongue coating mouthfeel. I guess this beer is the result of mixing two of the worlds best things, pacific northwest hops and belgian yeast.

This is now one of my favorite beers This was the first time I have tried it. It is a limited release and I suggest giving it a go!

A - Clear yellow/gold with good head and lacing with a good bit of carbonation.

S - Citrus, mostly orange, with hints of vanilla and pine.

T - A nice hoppy and citrus front with a nutmeg and vanilla finish, great taste with subtle alcohol in the end. If I didn't know it was 8.8 I would have never guessed!

M - creamy feel. Feel thicker than it is.

O - One of the better IPA of any category that I have had. I will buy up the remaining bombers at my local store. I feel it is a hands down must try for any IPA connisseuor!
