3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden/orange beer with a thin white head. Strong aromas of pine/spruce, and floral hops. Tastes of pine/spruce along with some caramel, grapefruit, and candy sugar. That makes it a bit different, but in a nice way. Lagunitas makes great IPAs. Easy drinking, would be quite a good session beer if it were not for the moderately high ABV(which is nicely hidden).

Pous gold with small head. Aroma is fantastic and fresh hops. Lots of pine and citrus, smells almost like the circus!!! Taste was sweet with lots of piney bitterness on the finish. The finish is bitter and dry. Overall this was a solid, solid IPA. The freshness made this beer.

Bottle. Pours medium golden with moderate white head. Nose is mostly pine and citrus hops with a little bit of breadiness. Taste is caramel and bread malt that is balanced against a grapefruit hop bitterness. Finishes on the sweet side.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden orange pour with a decent amount of head. Aromas of citrus and grass - taste is smooth and flavorful. It would appear I like my wheat beers with some hops! I really enjoyed this and will be drinking it again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 I enjoyed the first half of this beer. Then the hops plus the aftertaste that lingered on kinda gave me a headache. The Brown Shugga from Lagunitas on the other hand is the whip.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle. Appearance is golden with a white head which lingers. Aroma is hops with a little bit of citrus. Flavor is also mostly hops, without being overpowering. A little sweet in the finish, but overall very pleasant, drinkable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. Pours light orange gold with off white froth. Aroma is sweet, nectary hops, honey apricot, citrus, peach. Very fruity IPA, flavor delivers malty biscuit, with hoppy fruit tones on the finish, peach, apricot, grapefruit. One of the first IPAs I’ve enjoyed in awhile, kind of reminds me of nugget nectar, though a little more subdued. Chewy mouth feel. Nice IPA.
