3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. 07.09.10.
Pours a deep golden honey color with a creamy head like melted whip cream. Taste is predominately pine with some mild citrus hops, pineapple, and a nice caramel malt backbone. The nose is spicy, piney hops, caramel malt, some citrus fruits (pineapple and lemon zest), and a hint of orange rhind. The mouthfeel is very creamy, bordering on being mildly chewy. A nice velvety texture. Great iipa for the price. Thanks Lagunitas.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours in a golden amber color with longlasting line of white head. The aroma consists of hop, malt, tropical fruits, honey and pinapple. The flavour is hoppy and sweet with citrus, tropical fruit and honey.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange amber, quickly disappearing thin head and decent lacing. Citrus peel, resinous, earthy. A bitter wallop up front with even more bitterness on the wash. At 8.2abv and 72.41 I.B.U. this is some serious brew.
More great stuff from Lagunitas.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful pine aroma when opening bottle. Balanced by a background malt. Thin head, perfect amber in color. Bursts with flavor - none too bitter.
Nicely carbonated. Very easy on the toungue for this style of beer. Smoothly bitter - if that means anything. A tasty treat that doesn’t rely on high ABV and bitterness as a selling point.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great IPA. Complex malty start moving into a resiny/grassy hop finish/. High gravity with excellent mouthfeel. All the complexity I expect from such a brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid IPA. Nice appearance, good lacing on the glass and good carbonation level. Hops dominate, but it's well-balanced. As with most Lagunitas brews, a solid beer for the money and would recommend.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber in an English pint. Clear orange pour, minimal off white head. Lotsa hops on the nose and then some pine. Citrus is a bit strong upfront then the malt comes thru.
This is a PFG brew. Sometimes I have a hard time with IPA’s at first. It takes a bit to appreciate the hoppy ones.

Pours beautiful clear amber with big creamy off-white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel and light floral. Taste is bitter and sweet, light alcohol. Medium body, soft carbonation, bitter hoppy finish. A great double ipa.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky, unfiltered gold with a white foam head that head that stays on the top of the glass and a decent amount of carbonation, looks good. Smells sweet in hoppy, with some spicy fruit making up the sweetness. Taste actually is lacking on hops and is more malty. Bitter, but also with a sweet and yet spicy cherry flavor. I can taste the alcohol and as well and the boozy taste really is prominent and finishes on the palate. Not so great, but not horrible.
