3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My 100th IPA. 35,5cl bottle @ VinensVerden, Odense. Pours unclear golden with a fine creamy white head and lacings. Nose is sweet malty and hoppy. Citrus and caramel. Smooth and crisp. A bit of alcohol tickling the tongue. Again a quite malty dominated IPA from Lagunitas. A bit of peach, bread and yeast. Fine and tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2009 Bottle: The aroma is slightly peachy along with citrus hops and faint caramel. It pours a transparent amber with a small white head. The flavor starts moderately peachy with some sweet orange notes. The finish has very mild citrus hops. Medium bodied with mild soft carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a fluffy white head that leaves a little bit of lacing. Citrus and floral aroma with some sweet bubblegum mixed it. The flavor is mostly sweet malt and caramel, the bitterness is there but not what I expected from the aroma. Medium body with average carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. This is a good beer but I would classify this more as an American Pale, Iíve had Pales that had more hop flavor and bitterness. Very good and drinkable though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours golden, with a moderate foamy white head. Aroma is a nice mix of malt and resiny sweet hops (grapefruit and orange). Flavor is resiny citrus hops (but actual fresh orange flavor, not just the citrus hop bitterness), good deal of malt backing, some yeast spiciness. Excellent: solid IPA (leaning towards double IPA), plus enough different to keep it interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 fl oz brown bottle. Golden colour, a one finger sized head of white foam on top. Good lacing. Great citrus aroma, orange and grapefruit up front, some sweetness. Some fruitiness in the mouth, juicy, bitter orange, dash of lemon, balanced malt. Dry finish, moderate citrusy hop aftertaste. Medium body with average ammount of carbonation, good drinkability. I may have liked this more than most, but I fell no real need to apoligize for it. Or... did I just... err, Iíll just have another...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet malt and pine hops. Fruits, bit of spices and liquorice as well, although fairly faint. A tad cloying. Flavour is sweet malt and pine hops as well. A bit cloying. Finish is hoppy, but not very bitter. Slightly oily palate. Not bad, but Iíve had better. 15-08-09.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617, and am disappointed a bit about not having my own bottle..or for that matter, several more bottles. This beer is pretty darn great. It poured a nice clear dark yellow with a thin white head. Itís aroma is very sweet, orange juice with maybe grape juice too. Itís delicious! Taste is really great, oranges immediately, very citrus. Tasty!!!!!!!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a very light golden with a moderate white head- some sticky lace and mod carbonation. Aroma is typical of lagunitas these days- tons of dank resinous tropical fruit type hops- mango is pretty dominant with some light wheat hints. Flavor is mango- tropical fruits, orange zest, some mint and pine- very clean some light crackery malts, and a slightly strange slight slick and almost astringent aftertaste. Pretty good overall- just something off about the mouth feel and finish.
