3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice copper pour with a half-finger head that leaves an ok lace throughout. The hop aroma is apparent as well as well as some candyish sweetness. The taste is a pretty nice citrus hoppiness with a sticky malt sweetness. The hop flavor is pretty basic not a whole lot of depth and/or variation. The mouthfeel is sticky and a little slick. I really can’t stand a slick on my pallet. The slickness detracts from any potential for crispness and "refreshing or quenching" attributes. Overall this is a good flavored and bodied brew with a slick mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is copper-amber with a modest off-white head that fades into a ring. The aroma has a nice biscuit malt character merging with the floral hop character. The best of both worlds perhaps? The hope tend to be a bit more forward. Light to medium body. The taste has a nice balance of malts and floral hops and a lingering biting bitterness. I wouldn’t go so far as to describe it as a Double IPA like RB does but it does have a fine hop quality to it.

355 cl Plektrum bar Örebro. Orange färg. Doftar en hel del men jag blir inte imponerad av smaken. Rejält bitter med en del alcohol Smak.

12oz bottle to my dogfish IPA glass. Hoppy wood and pine dominated hops. Touch of bitterness. A bit watery body. This is a pretty good IPA.

Amber pour, nice head. Citrusy aroma. Nice hoppy flavor with some sweet maltiness. A solid DIPA. I like what Lagunitas has to offer here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty much a Lagunitas IPA on steroids, orange juicy, medium bitterness, a bit thick bodied for a WC IPA, tasty but nowhere near my tops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Nothing extraordinary about this but drinks well and is relatively fresh which is nice. Mainly driven by citric fruit and pine. Slightly sticky which works nicely. Good drop

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours copper with a short head that leaves great lace. Huge aroma of pine, citrus, hay and grass. Nicely balanced medium bitter and sweet, interesting flavors of grapefruit and bubblegum, oily texture, medium body, average carbo and a brief balanced finish with sweet in the far finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very clear and pale golden color. Good white retention and lace. Aroma of sweet malts, flowers, pine, some kind of fruit, spice, sugar. Taste is hoppy and mildly bitter. A little sweet but excellent balance with the hops. Really well done.
