neongolden (542) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
(355ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours a totally clear medium gold with a bubbly white head that lingers well, a carpet of lace. Aroma quite sweet with mango, orange zest, resin, tropical fruit juiciness, caramel, biscuit malt, averagely hoppy, likely due to age. Palate pretty sweet, honey and bready malt core, fruit is a blend of citrus and some tropical notes, bit of pine and resin but not too much, drying a little and somewhat astringent. Fairly moderate bitterness on the finish, lighter for a DIPA, just a little grain/bread in the finish too. Balanced, no real alcohol heat. Medium body, slick, softish carb. I think this beer does show its age a little, the transport from Cali to SB shelves is showing. This seems to be on the lighter side of DIPAs in terms of both malt core and bitterness, and yet is still pretty sweet. Need to have it fresh to give a totally fair shake. Pretty good, but not exceptional.

Dit ruikt naar heel veel hop ! Goudgele kleur en een volle schuimkraag. bier heeft een extreme hopsmaak en is zeer bitter. Is lekker maar er dat zijn de meeste bieren van Lagunitas.

FMP (8) - SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2014 does not count
Pours a clear bright yellow. Aroma is an interesting combo of hops and pinapple. This combo of sweet and bitterness continues into the taste and creates a very unique beer. Almost a bit belgian tone to it. Lovely!

radarsock (1000) - Vermont, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Purchased from Leary’s, the Amesbury location, earlier today. $10.99 for the 6pack. To oversized shifter, it pours an effervescent web color orange with which a fluffy, snowy white head 1½ fingers in length stood. Was quite attractive. Aromas of cilantro/coriander, einkorn wheat, baby spinach, sorrel, Yakima Valley hops, matured bay salt, marsh grass, spent grain, rawhide, pine sap/pine needles, rosemary, cherry tomatoes, and white tea. Tastes the same with the addition of sourdough, sweet basil, sweat, and recycled fiber. Exceedingly floral. Medium-bodied.

bagalagalaga (122) - Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Fantastic, very solid hops taste without too much harsh bitterness. Haven’t had a Little Sumpin Sumpin in a while, but this one is much more memorable, looks like I better load up if it’s seasonal.

AirForceHops (3509) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 26, 2014
$2.10 U.S.D for a 12 oz. bottle purchased at the Beer Store, Nashua. Solid buy! Clear gold color with lasting head retention, thick lacing. Looks pretty. Aroma is bright citrus noes, grapefruit, lemons and

No idea how old the bottle is but it’s not an issue. The citrus hops show me long lingering grapefruit and hints of orange. Juicy fruits with a strong malt body that does NOT over power the hops bite, yet gives some balance. The palate has a mild lingering bitterness with a honey kind of malt. Jeez, this is a well-constructed IPA. Crisp and lingering fruity hop finish with the ABV pretty much hidden. Delightful.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2014
bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Lagunitas knows how to make a top shelf IPA, and this is no exception. Excellent hop flavors. Plenty big and aggressive but not overdone at all.
