Remember back in the day when you would fall down the basement stairs drunk as shit at 4AM and be 100% convinced that you never woke your parents? Well, I just fell down the stairs and once again I am 100% convinced that they never heard because they live 30km away - still got the magic!
I feel great knowing that I pretty much bought the entire city supply and drank it all to myself - E-town crew loves me for this and so do I. Drink 72 beers and barely saved one for review because it was so god damn good. Make that 2 - I just drank the last surviving bottle on Earth that I left hanging around for my own funny time reminder. And yea, it still was AWESOME. So awesome. Rare beer does taste better! LOL. Rating goes back to early December 2011 and its just short notes as it was pretty much impossible to review this as it was just pure joy to drink it... even as I drained the entire city’s supply solo. tung: Piles of citrus - citrus that tears apart my mind on every freaking sip - oranges, rrgf, pine, grapefruit rind, cherry, floral greatness remeniscent ... how the hell is that spelt? - of fresh cut flowers, slight grain, honey, apricot, secretions of only the most heavenly of creatures, tropical fruits and soft malts. This beer has absolutely everything I want to smell. Hours... hours have been spent smelling this brewed treasure. Tasty bits: Aside from the outlandish amount of hops and citrus, sweetness and thickness there is a fuckload of malt backing this monster. Sweetness abounds. Pineapple flops around, pine goodness, peaches, lemon, mild caramel, something that might be spearmint, grapefruit, unique malt base darker than it normally is, orange, pepper, resin, light dose of brown sugar for the sweet base, aaaaaa soooo good! medium body that is supported both by the hop thickness and the healthy structure of yummo malts. Perfection. Find me another ASA that beats this and I will marry your daughter that resembles an ugly donkey.

12oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a big, foamy white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is of hops, malt, pine, and caramel. Taste starts off with a bitter, piney hop burn. So very resiny. The hops are evened out by a caramel malt backbone. Lingering hop burn. Mouthfeel is light and soapy. Body is medium and drinks real easy. The alcohol is definitely there. Drinks very easy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Super słodki, super owocowy aromat. Mango, brzoskwinia, ananas. Barwa złota, piwo delikatnie mętne. Szybko opadająca piana ale świetny lacing. Odczycie wskazuje na bardzo lekkie piwo. 13-14 Plato. Zero ciała, dość wodniste. Alkoholu nie czuć. Jak na IIPA to super pijalne, ale przez to brakuje mu charakteru dużego piwa. Średnia goryczka, super przyjemne, ale trochę mu brakuje kopnięcia.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
DATE TASTED: May 20, 2015... GLASSWARE: Victory Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: Watching the Cavs try to steal a second straight in Atlanta--and relaxing after the end of baseball season, for good... APPEARANCE: Bright, pilsneresque body that releases tiny bubbles; the head is a monstrous white pillow that pitches a hedgerow of lacing; as the glass drains, excellent up-and-down lacing ... AROMA: thick wafts of sugary resin, pineapple, mango and other "strong" scents; not as much of the four grains available... PALATE: a mellow, moderately weighted body with a soft, balanced aftertaste--as easy-drinking as an 8% ABV will be...TASTE: a beautiful balance of a four-grain drag and a bevy of hops; a rather ridiculously good tasting "alternative" to the original, which I did not get a chance to sample; the resin is sharp, the pineapple palpable, the hops teeth-tethering--in a word, a full-flavored experienced that warms as it sips... OVERALL: ah, Lagunitas--thank God you have made the nationwide market a goal; grabbed a quart for $6.99 at Hope Liquors, and this beer is a perfect compliment to the night; hearty, flavorful and easy-drinking...any other aspect needed?

18th May 2015: quart bottle shared between me, my wife and son-in-law. Golden/amber pour with a white topping on each glass. Nice blend of aromas and flavours. Hops first and foremost, piny and citrusy: semi-sweet malt taste mid-sip. Decent and worth trying: hides the alcohol content nicely.

12 FL OZ ($9.99 6 pack) one of the best beers from the maker. a killer beer that attacks you like its an IPA and then after that first pint you’re already feeling it as its 8%. a truly perfect drunk maker.
