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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured into a tulip glass. A nice copper color and a sudsy white head that leaves some creative lacing. Aroma is purely hops with a little citrus and a lot of pine and floral. Taste is very well balanced with malt keeping the massive amounts of hops from being bitter. Palate is perfect for a big IPA; heavy but not thick. I’m a huge fan! Too many IPAs now are just bitter assaults on my taste buds...like they have something to PROVE. This one has nothing to prove.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma was hppy, some caramel. Flavor was nice typical double IPA, some citrus, pine etc. Nice looking, orange, with nice lacing. IIPA’s are almost never bad, this wasn’t the best I’ve had, but still a pretty good beer.
