strongpieman (1551) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Excellent aroma - strong, floral. Golden, clear with medium carbonation and a thin white head. Strong bitter taste that aligns with a good IPA. Very solid all around... good finish, lingers but pleasant. Recommend this one.

RedSox2004 (1354) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Mostly clear golden amber with a bright white pillowy head that dissipated to a nice film and left excellent lace. Bright citrus hops aromas burst through on the nose with a hint of wheat in the background. Taste features strong bitter grassy and citrus hops up front with spruce highlights to make it feel like a Christmas beer. Soft mouthfeel, highly carbonated, and a clean crisp finish. Supposed to be a summer beer, but it feels right for Christmas.

evr1dr (145) - Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Pours light orange with a thin and sticky lace. Nose of citrus and pine. Full sweat and bready mouthfeel up front. Very well balanced for 7%. A nice amount of hops on the finish. Easy to drink more than one of these. Glad to hear this is now year round.

boccefloyd (101) - Bon Air, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Pours a clear gold, good carbonation, fluffy white head that is retained and laces nicely. On the nose its citrus (lemon, orange, tangerine) and pine to start over a sweet malt backbone. In the mouth, the carbonation pricks the tongue, medium body and a fairly dry bitter finish. On the tongue you will get what your nose found, citrus hops w/ some pine over a caramel malt backing. Very nicely done.

Niko100 (2096) - Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Hazy amber/gold color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of floral hops, citrus, & light fruit; Flavor of slight sweet malt, pine hops, some caramel, and citrus (notably grapefruit); Finish is bitter; Nicely balanced; Overall, pretty good brew.

Strykzone (5159) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Honey colored and crystal clear. A white one finger head. Aromatic hops in the aroma that I will guess to be Simcoe. There is also a bit of caramel and just a skoch of cinnamon. Some chewy hops are tasted right away and they are kind of all over the place. Pine, grapefruit, graham crackers and toastiness. A delightful IPA that has a twist.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
A: Pours a slightly-hsazed golden with a nice white head. S: Smells very nice. Loads of citrus hops and a little bit of wheat briskness. Reminds me a bit of Gumballhead. T: Lots of citrus hops and a little bit of pine character. The wheat seems to contribute a bit more to the mouthfeel, but I won’t complain about the hop-forward nature of this beer. M: Medium bodied and nicely dried out by the hops. D: An absolutely fantastic summer beer and one of the best I’ve had from Lagunitas. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 05-06-2010

Floback (530) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Reklaw, AKA Solan, AKA Expansion Alan. Pours a standard amber with decent-sized white head. Gorgeous slow-sifting lacing. Aroma of assorted fruits, especially citrus, and herbs. Flavors are multifaceted but continually crisp & hoppy. Pine resin, tangerine, coriander, and Fruit Loops cereal. Full and creamy body, medium/full carbonation. Great IPA.

vyvvy (4178) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Pours golden / yellow with a bit of a haze to it and a moderate sized white head. The aroma has piny hops, smooth yeast, orange, spice and a light sweetness - very clean. Medium grainy body with a decent amount of prickly carbonation that seems to enhance the flavor. Starts with a slight toast to the malt, smooth lightly sweet wheat, earthy / piny / citrusy hops and some graininess. The finish is much drier and leaves a resiny taste in the mouth. This is a great beer & it makes me happy that the bottle now say "un-limited release" - so glad this will be around year round now.

Bendrixian (1188) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2010
Hazy, almost straw like colour, slightly cloudy, decent head. pines & fruity hoppy notes, I also get a little cereal or grain like quality to it. It has an almost resinous/sweety note as well. The palate is fruity hops and has a touch of sweetness in the mid palate and finishes dry & hoppy. A simple, if that is a correct term, well hoped ’il’ brew. It has some intreaguing notes making it almost complex but it reveals everything it has to offer over the first sips. My guess is that it is made in California.
