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 (2532) - Chicago, 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 (6176) - 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 (550) - 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 (5303) - 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 (1438) - 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.

notalush (5626) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Hazy golden pour - nose of piny, earthy hops, a bit of apricot and a wheaty tang - medium bodied and fairly creamy - a fair amount of wheat character, making the beer taste very much like an aggressively hopped american wheat ale - hops are earthy and slightly peppery, especially in the finish - moderate sweetness - a bit of tropical fruit character - nothing stand out, but decent.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2010
355ml bottle. Pours a light golden colour with white head that leaves a faint lace. Roasted cereal grain with underlying citrus hops and a hint of caramel on the nose. The wheat really comes out in the mouth, with a biggish hoppy kick through the middle and finish. Different, but not their best offering.

Slipstream (2348) - USA - NOV 21, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2010 It is not as magnificent as its sister, Little Sumpin Wild, but this is likewise a very tasty and hard to categorize ale. A fair amount of bitterness, but it is not overwhelming. There is some nice sweetness too, and that rustic quality that some interesting brews have. LSS has character - probably some unusual combinations going on here, but it all works. I have really gotten to like this stuff a lot!
