This beer blew me away! It poured more golden than I was expecting, with about two fingers of white head. The beer had a perfect balance of up front sweetness and backend bitterness. I love it far more than I expected I would and will pick this up time I see it for sale.

Lothore (451) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a dark golden color with a nice, tight 1.5 finger head that sticks around for a while. S- Lots of hops with hints of belgian yeast. T- Light fruits, peach, apricot hints of spice with a strong and assertive hop backbone and alcohol on the finish. M- Medium viscosity and carbonation. D- Very tasty beer. Easy to drink and much hoppier than expected.

Reimer96 (1062) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
Pours a clear pale gold with a frothy white head that leaves tons of lace. Aroma of pine, bubblegum, caramel, sweet pale malts and honey. Taste is a great complexity of spicy Belgian yeast phenols, pepper, alcohol pine, resin, grapefruit and a nice smooth bitterness through with a semi dry finish. Nice and complex while holding a great balance... Could use a bit more complexity on the nose bit otherwise this is a great beer.

hockeybeerguy (909) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a golden amber/maybe closer to a yellow colored body, one finger white foamy head that dissipates and leaves a nice spider web speckled faded looking lacing, light carbonation is seen rising. The smell is slightly sour and/or tart mango/lemon fruitiness up front, hops showing some pizazz. The taste is basically the same adding a bitterness from the hops that seem to be showing a bit more, lemony aftertaste, quick dry finish. The palate sits light on the body, pretty sessionable (perhaps poundable to some). Carbonation is somewhat sharp which is good for the style and I say good to me. Overall, I say this is a good Belgian IPA by style that I would have again. Kudos to Lagunitas for a style that I donít normally go after too much.

theisti (3093) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Boulevard tulip glass draft at The Belfry in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is mostly clear golden with no head, this was a VERY full pour. The aroma is soft hay, honey hop sweetness and a decent blast of floral Belgian yeast. The taste is mostly about the floral spicy Belgian yeast, though honey sweetness breaks through significantly as the beer warms. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation and a sticky sweet aftertaste. Didnít totally work for me.

Caytinator (809) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2014
12oz bottle. Nice looking standard golden pour with a stable head and medium lacing. Tangy, strong aroma, very appetizing, I love the esters the belgian yeast gives it. Itís not a straight copy of a belgian style, itís got a hoppy backbone. Really enjoyed this one!

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Small bottle. Hazy deep gold, big white head. Nose is pine, bubblegum, flavour also has orange, caramel, as well as smooth alcohol. I dunno about these Belgian IPAs, theyíre good when light and dry, the heavy sweet ones with pine resin always seem like nothing more than an "interesting" experiment to me. Can only blame myself for continuing to buy them.

Beerdedone (2488) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a lasting off-white head.Aroma of citrus, yeast, pine and fruit. Flavor was quite sweet and bitter with pine, fruit, caramel, yeast, grapefruit, mild spices and had a long bitter finish.
