3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with a thick, tanned head. Very hoppy aroma (well, of course... itís an IIPA..) with hints citrus, grass and flowers. The bitter finish lasts...

An attractive dark amber glow with a creamy head. Noticeable whiffs of citrus and malt. Good hops and malt notes, with a fine clean finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light amber colour with a light fluffy head at 2 fingers. Aroma of grass and citrus. A lovely taste with much flavour to it. Taste of caramell (or something smooth like vanilla) in background, hops, sweet/smooth malts and hints of grass and citrus. Some fruits and hints of whisky. A nice hoppy bitterness which is just enough and not overwelming. Although not quite as strong as other imperial/double IPAs.

Draught on keg at Euston Tap. What a strange interpretation of the DIPA style - it smells like perfume & tastes like a mash-up of flowers and Ribena summer fruits! But, I seem to be enjoying its strangeness ...

Had this out of a bottle at fermentation lounge in Tallahassee. Great citrus hop aroma with very malty strong ale type flavor. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of stale peaches, something sour, canít quite place it. Sugars as well. Pours a thin gold, little head, no lacing. Taste is medium sweet and bready, a bit of a hot alcohol aftertaste; not unpleasant, not great. Lagunitas makes a lot of great beers and this just isnít one of them -- thin, sweet, oddly sour.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is one of the best IPA's around. Nice hoppy flavor! Balance between hops and malts just right. Bitter yet floral. This one is BOLD!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper colour with a nice light beige head. Aroma of malt and alcohol with a sharp pine scent. Flavor reveals the similar qualities to the aroma, just a bit more subdued, the malts show up much more in the flavor. Lingering hop flavor. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle pours reddish amber with some white head into a tulip. Aroma of an extra load of the typical Lagunitas hop-bomb grapefruit, caramel malts, floral/honey sweetness, bit of pine. Taste is essentially the same as the nose: caramel malts and pine/grapefruit, bit of breadiness, finishing with some floral sweetness and an ever so slight touch of alcohol. Medium to full bodied with light to medium carbonation and a soft, puffy mouthfeel. Good stuff.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2009 Pleasant surprise all-around here. Beautiful golden red color with a fast head. Sweet floral aroma of tart cherries, apple, orange. Sweet crisp greeting with some expected citrus, barely noticeable alcohol, and bitter but relatively clean aftertaste.
