3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear bright orange pour with a quick tight foamy white head that dissipates to a thin film. Aroma is strong pine hops and sweetness. Taste is more strong bitter pine grapefruit hops and some caramel maltiness. Palate is medium and creamy with a fizzy chaulky dry finish. This is a strong ale? Where is the malt balance, more a IPA or close DIPA. Really like this at $4.99 a bottle. Maybe bigger rating if not labeled as a ASA.

Iím not too sure about the difference between this beer and the original Lucky 13. This is a great beer. An impressive balance of malt and hops, Though i prefer a stronger hoppy flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bomber from Binnyís. Somewhat hazy golden pour with a minimal white head. Aroma of citrus hops, cotton candy, sweet pale malts, some apparent alcohol. Flavor is a hodgepodge of sweet and bitter. Some apparent grapefruit and orange, mild sweetness from the malts. Not much of a punch from the flavor though. Alcohol is pretty apparent. This seems to be a bit thin bodied, and almost slick on the palate. This is just another high gravity brew from Lagunitas that isnít bad but isnít great. The price is always right, though.

$2.50 for a 22oz down in Medford. Red brown copper pour. Nose is malty, hints of plummy fruit, and a slight poke at citrus. Flavor is surprisingly pineapple, which I thought was great! Fairly sweet and malty, thicker body, honey, caramel, and not much of a hop note. Pretty wet beer. I really enjoyed it though! Stoked to see the Lagunitas guys getting weird!

Clear copper color. Nice bitterness followed by a nice subtle maltiness. The alcohol is well hidden. A very nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Clear gold, small white head and slight lace. Typical Lagunitas nose of berries, grass, and flamboyant citrus. Might as well be Maximus but for some drier, toastier notes and some stonefruity Amarillo. Thatís about it, really -- another flavorful gigantor Lagunitas ale offering.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This 2011 alternative version is an Imperial Blonde Ale, the guy from Binnyís told me. 22oz bottles pours a clear amberish gold with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is resinous, floral hops and a sweet honeyed caramel malt background. Taste is pure hops with a hint of honey. This bottle is freshy FRESH. Body is medium heavy with average carbonation and a dry finish. Good stuff, altough Iíve never had the original version of this.

Light and sweet floral aroma. Beautiful, clear orangish color with a light lacy head. Starts sweet followed by a moderate bitterness and finishes with a light fizziness. Flavors of honey, sugar, bread, and piny hops. A very nice sweet sipper from Lagunitas.
