FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2009
22 oz bomber. Pours a clear golden amber with a thick creamy off white head. Aroma is fruity citric tangerine hops, very refreshing and zesty. Some pine all accompanied by a strong caramel and toffee malt back. Flavor starts with a solid caramel malt base but the hops come out quickly and overtake the tongue with citric fruits and resins. Gets a sharp grapefruit like zest in the finish and some alcohol burn. Medium slightly syrupy body and a sharp active carbonation. Pretty good double IPA, which the alcohol burnt less but nicely balanced.

The Dan Journal #317. Tasted 11/19/09. 22oz bomber. Hazy with an orange hue and golden highlights. Brainy off-white head. Citrus candy nose. Medium to full bodied with a bright body. Good effervescence. Very nicely brewed! Went back for seconds.

750 ml (I think) Bottle. Poured a rich deep dark orange color with a small white head. Aroma has touches of spice, hops, malts. Flavor is quite refreshing, with notes of sweet malts, touches of spices, and a nice hop flavor throughout. Pine. Finishes pretty well, refreshing and was extraordinarily well priced.

Copper color with white head. Dominate citrus and pine nose. Solid malt backbone to hole up the big hop flavor. Good IPA.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - NOV 29, 2009
A clear copper beer with a large fluffy off-white head. No visible hop haze, leaves lace. Aroma is big cascade hops, flavor is much the same atop lots of hop bitterness, but some caramel maltiness in there too. Finish dry and bitter. Good DIPA!

Pours a nice gold with a massive, long lasting head and tons of lacing. Strong aroma of grapefruit and a little resin. Quite full and pleasing. Wow, the initial flavor very closely follows the aroma. I expected over powering hops but it ends up surprisingly balanced. It still favors the hops, mind you, but also has some sweetness too. I can feel the alcohol in my stomach, but it doesn’t have a strong presence in the flavor. Mouth feel is also dead center, with medium carbonation. Overall very nice indeed.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours a coppery orange color with a small filmy white head. Spidery, leggy lacing. Nose is spicey, resiny hops with a light sticky malt. Palate is stingy and sticky with a bitter finish. Flavor is big piney and resiny hops with a big bitterness and some light spiciness. Very refreshing.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, golden-orange colored body with an inch thick, rocky, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a solid lacing. Pretty color to this beer. Aroma is really nice and well rounded. Moderately sweet caramels, some dough, and some chewy toffees make up a really nice malt body. A moderate resiny tropical fruit and citrus hop backing to this. Mango, tangerine, orange, pineapple, and melon all bring out a nice floral aspect. The flavor is more of the same. Solid malt backing with a nice caramel and dough before the resiny, moderate bitterness finishes this off. Tropical and citrusy for a chewy hop bite and a dry, floral finish. Medium length aftertaste after a smooth, medium to full body. Overall, a very nice DIPA with a great balance. Sturdy malts and a good amount of fruity hops made this quite enjoyable. Well done.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 24, 2009
22 oz bottle. Clear rusty orange with a sticky off white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is floral hops, citrus and a sweet sugary caramel. The flavor has a good amount of hop bitterness from start to finish, there is some sweetness in the background just to help balance it out. Typical body, carbonation and mouth feel for an IIPA. Another great, affordable beer from Lagunitas.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Pours clear, golden orange from the 22oz. bottle: Citrus hops (lemon, lime, orange peels), resin, earthy/grassy (earassy), caramel, and honey. Oily and full-bodied, this is solid. Characteristically more on the citrus side rather than on the grassy end. Drinkability: If Lagunitas has swagger this would be the taste of it. My favorite of the brewery to date. #213 on 22112009, DG.
