3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet pine hop aroma. Has a copper and amber body with a solid two fingered head that has a faint off white color. Thick sweet port-like taste. Mild bitterness. Has a gentle warming sensation going down your throat. Heavy bodied as this is definitely in the sipping category. It goes down more gentle with each sip.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tons of hop resin in the nose, and in the flavour. Dunno what variety but it reminds me of the Sierra Nevada pale ale hopping but much stronger. Pine cones and dark chocolate, leading to mint and herbs in the aftertaste. Lots of hops complexity. I’m really surprised that it’s only 51 ibu.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is caramel, candied pine. Taste is thick malty sweet up front with a big hop flavor running through. The strange thing about this beer is how SWEET it is without being overly cloying. It gets better and better with every sip.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours copper with a big white head and lacing. The aroma is burnt sugar, hops, alcohol, and bread. The taste is burnt sugar, hops, yeast, and fruit. It’s pretty smooth on the palate. As it warms, the alcohol creeps up on you. It packs a decent punch.

355 mL bottle. It’s good, not great. it’s too bad these greedy fuckers sold out to Heineken. I guess their whole "fuck the man" thing was a bunch of hypocritical bullshit. There are lots of true craft breweries out there making great beer. No need to patronize this macro any more.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells like burnt brown sugar finishes off with a cearal smell. Has a nice dark orange hazy golden color. Flavor is super strong malt slight hops in the back. Flavor sits on your tongue quick with a nice sweet finish. The maltiness of the beer sits on your tongue a bit too short I wish it SAT longer. Carbonation is nice. For a high alcohol beer is very sweet and enjoyable very crushable. Keep coming up with those great brews Lagunitas.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@home, from Constantino’s, Cleveland, USA. Medium sweet bit tangy aroma of berries and hint of alcohol. Brown/orange color with minimal white head and clear liquid. Strong sweet taste of berries and brown sugar, a hint of malts. Medium balanced. Medium taste spectrum and long dry hoppy aftertaste with sweet malts and hint of berries. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, simple and too light mouth feel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Chestnut brown in colour, with a decent, beige head and plenty of carbonation. Brown sugar sweetness, some red berries, a hint of nuttiness, hoppy kick and very booz finish. Good, but not a beer I would rush to drink again.
