4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice looking sunshine yellow with a creamy, pillowy head. A nice lacing remains on the glass.
Fresh hoppy aromas of fresh cut grass, grapefruit, citrus and pine. Iím not always good at separating out the individual aromas, but this seems to hit them all!
Great taste. Bitter, as expected, but also fresh and slightly sweet to balance.
Creamy mouthfeel. Goes down very easily!
Overall a nice beer, and recommended.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Burnt orange / coppery color. Very clear with some light carbonation. Nice aroma. Mostly all hops here. Right up front I got some citrusy Grapefruit and fresh Pear & Apricot Tart hoppiness.Malts recede to the hop character. Medium to fuller body. Very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unclear orange. Strong cascade hop citrus/pine aroma tells you what to expect. Quite dry. Taste leans towards lingering resin over the more typical citrus/grapefruit notes.

Bottle pour. Pours a thin white head that sticks around for a while. Didnít think the original lagunitas IPA was hoppy enough, they solved the issue here. Lot of citrus aroma and flavor, great hops, smooth as hell for 8%+. A bomb west coast ipa. Reminds me a lot of green flashís imperial ipa. Well done.

Clear orange pour with a full head. Aroma is fruit, berry and pineapple. Nice viscosity, super smooth with a hint of bitter, but a sweet mellow aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer is fuckin awesome. Very floral and "dank" when I first smelled it(dank means "marijuana like" for all you squares who are too fuckin old to know any cool shit). Hoppy and botanical taste with not too much of the lemon and grapefruit that certain IPAs possess. I tend to think that too much citrus is fucking sickening at times...I mean seriously, if you want citrus go buy your self a faggoty 6-pack of Corona Light and stick a half shriveled lime in it...cause after all that is what living is all about...right? Corona Light...itís a way of life...if you are a fuckin yuppie.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
aroma of sweet hoppy goodness, and hop flavor that is strong but not too bitter. nice carbonation and decent mouthfeel, more bitter aftertaste that requires another sip to cool it down.

Bottled. My bottle had leaked due to cork opening a little bit by rough contact with other bottles in the parcel on way to Finland. I tasted it straight away as I opened the parcel and realized what had happened. It was fine except that the bottle had lost all the carbonation making it kind of flat. Also, no foam formed while pooring. So it was a little bit real ale -like. Anyhow, pours copper-brownish. Aroma of exotic fruit, mango and pineapple, and slightly bitter hoppiness. Hoppy flavor is deliciously fruity and malty sweet. Hoppiness was kind of lame to me, maybe due to leaking.
