Beautiful orange color, turbidity, thin, 1/4" white head. Hops. Plenty green. Wasn't gigantic or anything.

Bitter, sticky, resinous, got some sweetness running through it. Once again, its a neat beer, but its gotta be pretty hard to break into the regular Lagunitas hoppy lineup. So many excellent ones, it makes these one off stabs that are merely pretty good seem destined to only be experiments. . .

On-tap at the Hop Grenade.

A: Served a glowing clear amber with a greasy, oily, off-white head left sticky sheets of lace down the glass. A thin collar lasted the whole beer through.
S: Dank and fruity hops with notes of sweet tropical fruits and perfume. There are hints of grass as well.
T: Extremely sticky sweet and fruity hops with juicy flavors of papaya, mango, pineapple, and tangerine nectar. Sweet hints of nectarine and stone fruits as well. Very perfumey overall. The finish is sweet with honey and lightly leafy, and the aftertaste has a greasy and thick hop oiliness that lingers long after the swallow.
M: Medium full body, very smooth and greasy with a super drinkable mouthfeel. Soft creamy carbonation. Light minty tingliness. Soft overall and very smooth and delicious.
O: One of the sweeter and fruitier ipas I've had in a while. Very delicious and incredibly drinkable. Very sugary but very delicious.

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!!

On Tap at the Albany Tap Room for the 2015 SF Beer Week.

Pours just a magical, vibrant and deep auburn with a sassy white head. The color just jumps out at you. Is this an IPA or what?

The nose is a very clean, fruity and dank hop profile. Melons and mangos to be had underneath the pine herbal forest. Very powerful, but nothing out of place.

The taste and mouthfeel just leave you with a WOW factor. Other IPAs tend towards blasting you with one arena. Whether it be be bitterness, or citrus zest or forest. This one blasted you with everything but to an equal degree where you were on it's playing field saying hey, this is where I want my beer to be. Powerful flavors danced together from all sides inviting you in to the smooth and rich mouthfeel to get you lost. Where was I? I don't know. Find this beer now!
