3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an almost clear amber with whiteish head. Big, tropical fruit hoppiness with mangoes, preserved peaches and some pine cones. Slightly caramelly maltiness. Juicy aroma. The palate is medium+ bodied with some sweetness and a nice kick of bitterness on the finish. Pretty well balanced for the style.

This is a good IPA, piny taste. Was definitley lacking in aroma when compared with some other IPAs. Very citrusy. Was cloudy in appearance.

Maybe this would be better on tap. Lagunitas makes some great IPAs but this is not one of them. The hops just arenít there, they donít have the intense citrus kick that a good California ipa should have.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rather hazy amber-orange, diminishing head. Very hoppy on the nose, with grass-clippings and citrus. Thick body, moderately sweet, with a wonderfully bitter ending.

From a bottle. Pours a capper color. Aromas of piney and citrus hops. More citrusy, piney hops in the taste with some caramel malt. Very dry finish. Good double IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one is quite alright. Hoppy in both aroma and taste, this brew has an off-white head that fades promptly but never disappears altogether. Light amber in color. Smooth on the palate and finishes faintly bitter as an IPA should. I would have thought something with this abv would have had more of an impact on me, but it is simply enjoyable, not intriguing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark copper with a huge, 2 fingers of frothy off white head. Leaves a lot of sticky lacing. Nose is typical of an imperial IPA. Very citrusy and moderately hoppy. A lot of grapefruit and orange. Mouth is very bitter and sweet. A lot of citrus again. Grapefruit, orange and pineapple. The finish has a lot of pine and is very sticky.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A bitter, sappy green pine underpining and a resinous, deep hop flower aroma. Slightly chalky, dusty and dry; although high in alcohol content, this ale is easy to gulp.
