Draft at Jerry’s. Dark gold with big foamy off-white head / Floral nose of pine, citrus, and bread / Medium body, moderately sweet with biting hops, but with good malt balance, and with long finish / Flavors of fresh cut pine, orange, grapefruit, chrysanthemum, earth, and caramel / Not as big as some, but just a perfect example of a double.

I want to lick the girl on the covers feet. The beer is really dope too. Beer is like a pair of feet, I want to stick my dick in them and drink beer while getting a foot job. The point is this is really good and little sumpin is also good and I have never had a bad beer from Lagunitas so they have nice feet. I’m gonna go take a nap

Straw yellow pour from bottle. Terrific fruity aroma. Full flavor from copious hopping. Smooth mouth feel. Well hidden alcohol. For a double IPA it is very drinkable. Citrus, floral, skunky all in a good way.

I never give a perfect score to a beer because to me, perfection doesn’t exist when it comes to beer or food. To be fair, I must say that this one is pretty much close to perfection! First, Lagunita’s labels and beer names are funny! Then comes the serving... This one has a great looking golden colour with just enough carbonation to make the liquid jiggle in the glass. Head is foamy and the strong citrus aromas still make their way through this thick bubbly white head. Taste is absolutly beautiful: pink grapefruit, lemon, flowers, lime, malts.. it is so complex, that I can barely name a few ingredients storming in my mouth right now! The mouthfeel is outstanding with a smooth carbonnated bitterness, low alcool, a little sugar and a fine long long magnificent fruit taste that stays in your mouth as the liquid is going down the throath. As I said, it is simply a principle matter that I don’t give this beer a perfect score. This is just the perfect ale for me! Btw, sorry for all the mistakes, English is not my first language.

Aquilo (586) - Berkeley, California, USA - SEP 15, 2009
An absolutely beautiful pour. Clear, orange-brown, with a nice fluffy cream colored head. The aroma makes me melt into a puddle on the floor. Creamy, fruity with grapefruit and apricot, a bit of malt. Flavor is shaped by malt and fruit, with some grassy hop bitterness in the background. Palate is creamy but a bit astringent. Holy crap this is good!

Strong hops aroma and flavor. Hints of caramel and nuts. Nice clear, golden color with a frothy head. Medium bitter/sweet. Earthy.

Excellent beer! Pours a light amber/dark golden with a thin, non-existent head. Excellent aroma of bubblegum, candy, citrus and pine. Startles you on the first sip (thinking it may be overly bitter) but really comes on relatively smooth with a slight bitter kick.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear, medium gold with. Half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Loads of tropical and citrus fruits with a decent malt backbone. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Another lagunitas Homerun.

This is one fantstic IPA! It pours a beautiful orange color with a very generous white head. The head sticks nicely around the glass, as well. The nose is full of pine, hops, grapefruit, a hint of grass and hay. The body is smooth, enjoyable and drinkable. The body features some excellently delicious flavors, delivering a ton of spicy hops, pine, grapefruit, orange peel and floral notes. This IPA also features quite a balanced malt profile, with bready and earthy notes. This is yet another great IPA from Lagunitas.
