Sips of malt and sips of hops. A great marriage. Above average mouthfeel. Lasting generous white head on cloudy golden body. Very drinkable, a wonderful accompanyment to supper. Good for style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dominant aroma of pineapple Dark yellow with thin white head. Nice lacing. Flavor is sweet with reiteration of the pineapple and some honey character. Very viscous, oily texture. Bitterness really only presents on finish but is solid. Interesting beer....sipper not a quaffer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Citrus, pine, and toasted bread aroma. Flavors of grapefruit, toffee, apricots, and butter rum. Kind of reminds me of a blond version of Sierra Nevada Bigfoot. Cloying, bitter finish. I wasnít impressed at first but it does grow on a person after a while. Not Lags best though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice honey brown body complete with a good 1Ē fluffy cap. Looks like it will be a tasty one. Normal west coast hop aroma you know the one, peach, leather, caramel, lemon. Epically stick lacing. Nice bitter flavor, very peach with a good balance of sweetness. Earth, caramel, leather, more stuff. Great drinking brew, easy to slam and yum. The 8.3% is hidden completely and could probably get you in trouble if your nat paying attention. Yum. So in conclusion peach, leather, hops, better, sweet, YUM!!

Tap at the Ginger Man FW. Served in my brand new Laganitas jar/glass. Pours a clear light copper color with a nice white head. The aroma is fairly hoppy, but not overly so. Good sense of hops and well balanced fruit. Good aroma. Flavor is hoppy bitter with a bite from the ABV. Sweet and tart fruit can also be felt and tasted. This is pretty solid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep golden color with a good sized fluffy white head that shows great retention and lace. Aromas of citrus and pine waft from the bottle the second it is opened. Sweet toffee and caramel malt backbone hold this one up quite well. Taste is citrus and pine up front, sweet caramel and burnt sugar pop in for a second somewhere in the middle. The hops take over the finish and dance for a second with a touch of ethanol. The malty sweetness is almost approaching maibock here but the hops are powerful enough to keep that in check. Medium body and level of carbonation. Resinous and sweet sticky mouthfeel. This is nice, I liked it. Itís a bit different, but I really enjoyed it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours golden copper with a small but decent white head. The aroma is hoppy sweet candy, a bit perfumey, but I really like it. The flavor is hoppy and lightly perfumey as well from the hops with light notes of citrus fruits. The body is medium and the ending is not bitter at all, but smooth and pleasant setting gently with the hop notes.
