3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I wasn’t really sure what to expect with this beer since the bottle didn’t really say much about the beer. But, my gamble paid off. This is a mighty tasty, very hoppy beer. The hop flavor is more citrus sweet than bitter. There was lots of head, but that’s probably just because i was sloppy with the pour. Overall, I am quite happy with this beer and might have to grab a six pack after trying this single.

Flaske: Dejlig duft af humle, citrus på en flot orange øl med et kæmpe skumhoved. Meget drikbar i forhold til de relativt høje procenter. Balanceret bitterhed, og ike den klassiske lagunitas signatur. Men påtrods af denne mangel stadig en helvedes god øl.

Bottle. Clear gold with a frothy white head. Floral aroma with some pine also, the pine really increased as the beer opened up. Flavor is pure hops, but not overdone. Just a little malt sweetness lurking, but the hops are the show. Good bitterness, but the bitterness isn’t the story here. The hops are very well balanced throughout, the combination of aroma, bitterness, resinous sticky mouthfeel, and dry lingering hop finish is extremely well done. This is a summer beer for hopheads.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden body with a good sized white head that fades into a thin layer and leaves a little lacing. A big fruity aroma with some caramel and piney hops. Flavor is malty sweet and bitter, citric hops. There’s a funky finishing flavor that I can’t place that I’m not sure I really enjoy. Sticky mouthfeel. I’d give it another shot.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright, sweet, super fruity aroma with some vanilla, caramel and light vinegar. Fair label, bright citrine gold. Sweet, honeyish, cakey, hoppy. Medium-heavy body, boozy on the lips. Interesting and good. Long hoppy finish, with more lady finger cake flavors.

Lots of chocolate malts, lots of heavy malts and hops that give the beer perfume and elegance and some fruitiness that is defied by the smokiness and sugar that make this a litttle sumpin sumpin different.

Pours a golden color with little head. The aroma is very fruity, grapefruit, apples. The taste is a nice hoppy bitterness that is a fruity smooth finish. Almost reminds me of 2009 Correction Ale
