3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
CL Flaming Fury Release Party- bomber. Pours a nice light golden with a white lasting head and good lace. Aroma is mango, pine, peach, orange zest, oil, and sap- low cracker malts. Flavor is very low on the malt- almost too low it barely holds the beer together- lets through lots of tropical hops amarillo and simcoe, light pine, tacky resin, clean pine tart, wheaty doughy cracker as it warms. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden with an slight amber hue. Nice froth lingering like a fine perfume. Aromas of hop ash and sour popsickles. Full nectar with expansive carbonation becoming dense like a marshmellow almost choking me. This brew strikes a good balance with all components although there is a looming herbal cartoid that diminishes my pleasure drinking this. Only mildly sweet, ample hopshire, and not too hot.

Bottle. Poured a nice orange color with a decent white head.The head went rather quickly, but left lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma was pines, citrus, and sweet hops. Flavor was great. Nice floral undertones, spruce, grass, and pines. Aftertaste was bitter. Some sweet malts on the tongue as well. Heavy bitters with a sticky mouthfeel. Medium body, nice carbonation. A well balanced beer.

Draft. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was thick and off white with decent retention and lacing. Citrus fruit dominated this beer, especially orange. Orange marmalade and orange zest came to mind. I also detected some apricot and pale malt. medium bodied and slightlt sweet with mild bitterness. Yum.

Great aroma, but the finish is a little bitter than I usually enjoy. Still, very good. You can’t go wrong with Lagunitas, in my opinion.

Pours a clear light golden with thin off white head. Aroma of citrus hops, some pine hops and caramel malts. Similar taste, strong hop finish. Not as complex as I had hoped for, a tad on the thinner side, but very good.
