3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pous a clear medium copper with a one finger white head that fades away rather quickly leaving a thin cap and a little bit of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Aroma has the typical Lagunitas tropical fruit character. A touch of pine with a backing of bread and caramel albeit on the light side. Hops really dominate.
The passionfruit and pine carried over into the flavor with Tons of tropical fruit up front. This is followed by a little bit of yeasty banana and a flash of ethanol. Bitterness is moderate to high leading to a dry, almost chalky, mouthfeel. Not much malt in the flavor maybe just a touch of bread. The body is a little bit thin which aids drinkability but somewhat subtracts from the overall experience.
Overall, this is an ok beer but middle of the road as far as IIPA’s go. The body is a little too dry and this isn’t too much different from their standard IPA. Hop Stoopid is better and I probably won’t seek this one out again.

Really good IPA, but its no hop stoopid. A little too astringent though I like the resinous hoppiness.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bärnstensfärg med vit krona som sjunker lite väl snabbt. Doften är liten för en lagunitas, men det doftar av grape, citron och jäst. Smaken är fyllig med tilltagen beska. Eftersmaken är beska som överlever länge. En riktigt bra öl som smakar på lagunitas vis.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0.335/SB. Copper clear. Floral, citrus grapefruity with green grapes, thick caramel on nose. Full bodied, nicely bittered. Some caramel sweetness, but not overpowering nor too thick. Piney stuff, earthy flavours. Pretty good dipa. It’s been a while since I’ve had one that’s not overly thick barley wine- like. Refreshing, tasty.

Orange /gold pour with a slightly soapy head. Citrus and malt - nothing too complicated on the nose. More malty than expected in taste (based on the aroma) with nice bitter orange notes. Dry, a little sweetness, very lightly carbonated

Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a clear burnt orange color with little head and no lacing. Aroma was citrusy malt. Taste was very smooth, with a good mouth feel. For a high ABV brew very smooth, Lagunitas never disappoints!

Clear dark golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of hops, citrus, grass, biscuits and some malt. Also some notes of alcohol. The finish was bitter and fairly dry. Drinkable but not as tasty as expected, I wonder how old the bottle was?
