4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber with a thin slightly greenish head. Some loose hop material at the bottom of the bottle. Very aromatic with notes of floral hops and some malty sweetness. Taste is hoppy, good bitterness with notes of citrus that warms to an ever-so-slightly sweet malt body with notes of caramel. Very full bodied, this is a thick beer, but only lightly carbonated. Finishes with a spruce-ish bitterness. This is a very fine strong ale, would probably benefit from a tad more carbonation to push the aroma and head a bit more, but is well balanced. Another good one from Lagunitas....

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light copper, orange hue. Creamy, off-white head.
Sticky, sweet malts, juicy grape candy (jolly ranchers/fruit roll up). Smells great. Resinous hops.
Reminds me a Stone AB with a lighter malt bill. Hop profile of an barley wine, Blue Point Old Hollowing Bastard. Booze is present and warming.
Beer is on-point.

Bottle from total wine McLean. Pours orange with a thin white head. Lots of lacing in the glass. A bit of alcohol on the nose. The taste notes are more spruce. Not my favorite from Lagunitas.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A sweet golden ale, honeyed and fruity juice with mild bitterness. Ok beer.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh one month after purchase.
The look: Crystal clear golden body topped by medium off-white head quickly dissipating to a small layer of foam leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is moderately hoppy (fruity hop character very much like sweet apricots) along with honeyed cereals. Taste has a lot of oily cereals, honeyed pastry, mangos, sweet apricots, kiwis, a bit of caramel. Rather sweet beer upfront with the sweetness feeling very much sweet canned fruit juice and somehow not very much cereals sweetness. Bitterness is barely enough to balance the fruity-juicy-sweetness. Not a superb beer but you canít go wrong with this $4.49 bomber, not many tasty cheap bombers anymore. I drank my Luck 13 bottle, then opened an umbrella indoors under a ladder, kicked my black cat and then threw my Lucky 13 bottle and crashed my mirror, I just donít tempt fate, I sit on its face.

Pours burnt orange, white head, decent lacing. Smells of sweet pine and a little orange. Taste is very smooth, citrus, orange, pine, and slightly sweet with nice maltiness. I didnít know what this was based off of the bottle but figured Iíd gamble. Nice beer, great price, easy access; canít ask more than that.
