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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden. Rich aroma with citrusy and spicy hops. Full hop flavour, spicy and pungent, and a full taste with moderate sweetness and a very bitter finish. Full-bodied and soft. Overall, a great double IPA. It has the right malt sweetness to balance the aggresive hops.

12fl oz bottle poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint. Light, sparkling, with a fluffy offwhite cap. Smells like a tropical fruit that I can’t quite place. The hops in the flavor kicks a little at first and then becomes rather muted. Pretty tasty.

Orange color, beige head. Hops, hops, hops in the aroma. Grass, pine and citrus. Sweet beer with a hop bomb during the finish. The hoppy taste gets to intense and doesn’t suit me at all.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Versa nel bicchiere di una bella tonalità arancione-ambrato, velata; è sormontata da una bella schiuma di colore bianco sporco, cremosa, che si dissipa lentamente e dalla buona allacciatura. L’aroma iniziale è un’esplosione di profumi floreali, agrumi dolci (soprattutto pompelmo ed ananas) e di luppolo, che solletica il naso. Il profumo di malto aleggia nel finale, così come quello di caramello. Al palato trova seguito quanto percepito al naso, con il luppolo che domina l’ingresso in bocca, accompagnato da forti note agrumate, di pino e sentori di resine. L’amaro è ben bilanciato dalla comparsa a metà bevuta del malto e, dalle note dolci di caramello; per un finale lungo e secco. Ha una bassa carbonazione, che la rende liscia e cremosa per un’ottima facilità di bevuta.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle pours a semi-hazy orange with thin patchy white head. Aroma is resinous with a pith note and a hint of banana esters. Taste is biscuit, caramel, and floral pith; up front bitter with a mild, slick finish. Seems like a cross between a red and a hop bomb.
