4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on draft at Wild Monk. Served in a Stone IPA shaker pint.
A: Pours a clear golden yellow color with a nice one finger height of pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thick cap and collar that leaves some nice sheets of lace down the glass.
S: Juicy citrus on the nose. some candied orange and definite tangerine. Sweet wheaty malts are present on the back end as well.
T: Nicely hopped just like the nose. Burst of citrus fruits and tree fruits with a little bit of lingering herbal bitterness to give it another depth of flavor. There is a nice cracked wheat and sweet malt body to the beer as well.
M: Medium to light bodied with a nice medium high carbonation level. The finish is creamy and sweet with a tinge of bitterness.
O: Iím very impressed by this beer. Great citrus hop presence with a sweet malt and wheat body. I will definitely revisit in the future.
Serving type: on-tap

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Golden-orange, mostly opaque with a thin, wispy white head. Modest lacing. Aroma loaded with fruity hops & sugar cookie malt sweetness. Grapefruit, apricot, grapes, pears, even a hint of raisin. Almost a rum-like booziness to it. Tropical? Spicy yeast is also present, hint of bread & clove. Flavor has the same fruity hop component, perhaps with a bigger orange rind & earthy aspect. Some pine sap, too. Lots of soft wheat, biscuit, & yeast flavors, heavy in the finish. Has a light residual sugar aspect to it, also, almost burnt sugary. Lingers with some weedy, musky, borderline-vegetal hop notes. Unique, enjoyable aside from the somewhat eccentric hop flavor finish.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Beautiful hopsy aroma, bursting with pineapple, and grapefruit on the nose, I also get a mild smokey "weiss-esque " note. Pours a golden orange with a thin head. I found it very sweet but not in a bad way and dominated by citrus flavours with a nice soft malt although very mild. Its light in the mouth for what it is and you definitely wouldnít know you where drinking a 7.5% abv, A beautifully crafted beer with a lot going on Iíd highly recommend, definitely in my top ten beers.

2/8- Mo Dailey Draft (Chicago) - Very good IPA offering by Lagunitas. Nice blend of taste and strength, went down smooth. Had a few when all was said and done, and I look forward to having this beer again down the road.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer fits its glorious name. The aroma is fantastically floral, sweet and fruity, with just a hint of the strength of this IPA. Tastes of spicy mango with sweeter floral notes and a nice bitter finish. Get yourself a little sumpin' sumpin'.

Bottle on 2/28/15. Pours a just slightly hazy orange. Thin white head with solid lacing. Nose is fruit and hops. Taste is juicy, a little astringent, pine, gummy bears, fruit loops. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Two bottles Iíll be comparing here. First with a code 138 (5/18/14) drunk early December, and 013 (01/13/15) drunk 02/17/15. The first bottle probably well past its out date, but not bad, the second decently fresh. Pours a light golden, yellow color, totally clear. Lively carbonation, soapy white head, lots of small bubbles. First bottle just a general citrusy aroma, thereís something else there. Second bottle offers much more in the nose, just exploding with pineapple, some grapefruit, some sweetness. Taste is citrusy, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon. But what letís me know this has wheat in it, it just finishes differently than regular IPAs. Itís easier on the back of the throat. My go to IPA, super affordable as are all Lagunitas beers, and everywhere.

Deep golden color with a nice thick heady pour. Very strong hops on the nose but more mellow than anticipated. Malty flavor with a touch of both sweetness and bitterness. Bright and flavorful. Would drink again.
