Bronze with clarity, 1 full finger of head and sticky lace all over the glass. Dank hop aroma. Dried fruit. Taste is Belgian style almost Tripel like. Double IPA. Well balanced and smooth. Awesome brew!!

Back on tap at the Lagunitas Taproom after Waldo's Special dissapeared

10 oz pour into a stemless wine glass at Lagunitas Taproom

Appearance: Pours much lighter than I was expecting from lagunitas. Really good clarity and a nice head on it as well, though I would have preferred this in the larger lagunitas mason jar.

Smell: Strong smell of hops, almost smells fresh hopped but I did not ask. I believe the hops were mosaic, simcoe, and one other.

Taste: Extremely good DIPA. Great hop flavors come through, without a ton of bitterness. Not much of a malt backbone supporting the hops which I personally prefer. Could have been a little better integrated maybe, something about it just wasn't perfect but I couldn't put my finger on it.

Mouthfeel: Very nice mouthfeel. Not as sticky as Waldo but still has some nice stickiness. Very smooth with good carbonation.

Overall: Great beer. Won't be around long but I am glad I got a chance to try it!
