3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper color with a thick, lasting head. Sweet orange citrus and malt aroma. Citrus hops nicely balanced with the malt. Finishes with a hit of piney bitterness. Nice medium body. A pretty straightforward IPA but very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2011 very grassy and resiny hops in this one. very flavorful and zesty on the tongue with a moderate but assertive bitter finish. sweetness in the flavor but it compliments the rest very well, this is a very balanced IPA, bold and nice flavors while still being pretty easy drinking, having a smaller body than something like a SN torpedo. in this case it’s a good thing. as long as you can find it fresh this one is a definite winner

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12-oz bottle. Copper color with a persistent thick head, white with orange lacing. You first notice the nicely hopped aroma as a promise of complexity that will be unfortunately not fulliflled. A very well balanced, very capable IPA. If i had to chose among many macro-brewed IPAs i would pick this one...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden orange color, not particularly hazy, white head. Aroma is of grassy hops, a hint of citrus. Taste is pine hops, caramel malt, strong hop bitterness, again a hint of citrus at the finish. They come a lot better than this.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden amber with small floaties and an average foamy off white head. Aroma of iced tea, some citrus from the hops, caramel malt but really nothing too stand out. Not sure how old this bottle was. Picked it up at the local six pack shop...but I don’t have too much faith in how quickly they turn over products. Onto flavor...pretty much the same iced tea, malt sweetness and some decent hop bitterness. Not much hop flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lagunitas event at the Brickskeller. Clear orange appearance; off-white head with great retention and lacing. Some citrus hops, plastic (?) in the aroma. Slightly off. Medium mouthfeel: floral and citrus hops, one-dimensional, but reasonably tasty and balanced. Light, slightly dry finish, with hints of sugar.
