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. . .

Orange and peach color, leaves itself very hazy, thin white head. Aroma of hops. Lagunitas? No way. Hops smelled wetter, was expecting more of a belgian yeast vibe given the previous fusion quests, but this took on more of a green hop vibe, leading me to believe this may in fact be why the beer took on a bit of a hazy appearance. Wasn't massive in the nose though, just kinda simplistic.

Pretty sticky, bitter beer. Kind of made me think of the old oast ales made with hop oil, like hashish at times. Pineapply sweetness to it. Kinda reminiscient of FW's Double Jack.

Not a bad effort by any means, just haven't had any of these fusion beers I would run out to buy, I still think, for the best Lagunitas hop assault for your money, stick with Hop Stoopid, Lagunitas Sucks, Dogtown Pale Ale etc. . .

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.
