3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 US.fl.oz. bomber poured into a pint glass...
Appearance - Light amber body, with a very rich creamy beige head. Great head retention and amazing lacing! Looks very good for an American IPA!
Smell - The aroma is not very intense, but then again, the bottle I had was fairly old. Grapefruit, oranges, pine, a bit of flowers, and some nice bready notes on the nose.
Taste - The taste starts out with quite a good hop bite, with grapefruit-like bitterness and some pine. Then comes a surprisingly nice mild sweetness. Some caramel, some bread, and some toasted malts are also present. Finishes in a slightly dry and bitter after-taste.
Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium body to it. Low in carbonation. No real hints of alcohol, yet it may give a warming sensation to your body.
Drinkability - Goes down smoothly. For an American IPA, this is a very sessionable beer. Drinkable enough for a beginner hop-head, yet not too light or lacking on flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to pint glass
I can’t believe that I’ve never waited this before. As I was sitting in a bar having one I decided to check rate beer and realize there was no rating. Citrus. Spruce, hops, and some caramel. Clear light amber with a thin off white head, but moderate lacing. Light pepper, pine, spruce, some grains, and caramel. Classic IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I can't believe I've never rated this given how many times I've had it! Amber color with thin cream colored head. Aroma has a bit of caramel malt and a good dose of floral and citrus hop notes. Flavor is similar with some biscuity and caramel malt flavors up front followed by a nice balance of hops. Medium bodied, lightly astringent. Not the hoppiest IPA by any means, but great flavor and extremely sessionable.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hana @ The Flying Dog, Tukholma. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja aivan hieman sameana, tiivillä vaahtomatolla. Tuoksussa on paljon trooppista hedelmää ja karamellia, vähemmän havua ja makeampaa sitrusta. Maussa vahvimpana on taas havuisuus, kevyemmin löytyy hedelmää, karamellia ja marjaisuuttakin, mutta melko vähän. Suutuntuma on kuiva ja katkero puraisee todella kivasti. Samalla löytyy hyvin täyteläisyyttä. Kuiva, katkera ja havuinen palketti, malliesimerkki hyvästä IPAsta. Hieman enemmän hedelmää , niin tämä olisi ihan täydellinen.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap pour - golden with a small white head. Aroma is very nice and enticing - loads of tropical, fruity hops, hint of caramelized malt, mild breadiness...some pine in there as well - good stuff! Flavor is very good as well - good hop bitterness without being overwhelming - tropical hops dominate, but there is a good piney/forest note as well. Enough malt backbone for a ’single’ IPA to add some balance - I really dug this stuff! Palate is oily and smooth. Lagunitas does it right with this simple, yet delicious (and relatively cheap) IPA - Prosit!

12 oz bottle, served from same on Fox Lake, IL. Aroma is mild bready hop bitterness with slight metallic oxidation. Flavor is same with moderate carbonation and medium body. Bread yeast finish, not one of Lagunitas’ better offerings.

From a bottle. Pours golden with a thin head. Nice aromas of resiny hops and sweet malt. Nice hope bite that counters the fruitiness of the malt. Not overly sweet. Dry finish. Medium mouthfeel. This is a crisp IPA balanced very nicely--not syrupy...not a hop bomb....just right. Delicious.
