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

12oz bottle pour@5e Mondial de la BiŤre, Mulhouse - SO. Extremely thin-bodied pour, fizzy biscuit yellow. Heavy citrus resins in aroma, accompanied by a wheaty tartness. First mistook this for a PA and was chocked by its hop blast: taste has those well-engineered, slightly technocratic citrus peel resins, pith, lemongrass notes a-go-go, overdrawing a picture perfect parody of the 00ís West Coast IPA. On second sipping: more blossom, Thai basil leaf, caramelsed pineapple malts. I prefer my beer with an edge of grace, but when technocracy comes as juicily wrapped as here, itís hard for the lupophile synapses not to give in.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, citrus, pine. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

Poured from a bottle. Quickly dissipating sudsy head, but a small filmy head remained for awhile. Clear yellow color. Grapefruit aroma, hoppy citrus flavor. Smooth going down. Refreshing offering.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold pour with a 2 finger, soapy white head that has good retention and leaves some decent lacing. Aroma: Big sweet citrus, fruity and floral hops, sweet malt, a little biscuit. Flavor: Sweet malt, honey, sweet grapefruit and orange citrus, floral and light spicy and cat box pine hops. Medium body, neutral to syrupy feel throughout, medium, sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, but like most Lagunitas beers Iíve had comes off as simple and soda-like due to a big sweetness and lack of any malt depth.

Beautiful pour with big frothy head. Pale amber. Big hop aroma. Taste is a little sweet with fruit flavour up front and only a little bitterness afterwards. Lovely stuff. bottle at greg?s NY pad.

Hoppy West Coast IPA. Pour us golden yellow with big off white head. Aroma hits you before you even pour it. Aroma is grassy piney mango. Bitter hops up front. Light malty mouthfeel, the malt is just there to support the hops. Grassy, piney, hop bitter finish. A great IPA if you like hoppy beers.

pleasently surprised. bottle. silky smooth mouthfeel with citrus and hop flavor galore. Taste alittle smooth and has a delish bite and aftertaste. Booze is very very hidden.

Hazy fun treat but SALSA BABY!! WOOO. Ok, not as much salsa flavor in this one. Actually none. Lagunitas maybe have been reading my reviews :).
