3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid iipa... This beer is at least a step to a step and a half above most iipas. It is solid everywhere...it could use a bit more hop aroma up front but is filled with strong hop flavors and that sweet bitterness doubles are known for. The only thing hopslam beats this on is aroma up front...every other round Maximus wins..plus this baby is 22 oz for $5.99!lagunitas loves the American people and its easy to get!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled about 120 days ago.
copper with a finger of fleeting white foam. Some spotty lace. The malts have come through on this one, and they are nice and fruity, apricot fruity. Some hints of grassy and resiny hops. A little hint of citric essence.
Bitter and malty with a spicy tone. I like the fruitiness of the malt backbone here. I feel compelled to find a more fresh bottle so I can dig on the take with the hops. This is a thin brew with moderate carb and wet finish.
I like how the beer comes together being about four months old. I appreciate that the hops are still complimentary, but are subdued revealing a truly appreciable malt profile.

Well hopped but balanced DIPA from Lagunitas..nice copper color, aromatic with fruit, pine..really liked the dry finish..started on the palate longer than I expected..went out and got the Little Sumpin Sumpin too..which is also a winner.

Really good IPA, but its no hop stoopid. A little too astringent though I like the resinous hoppiness.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bärnstensfärg med vit krona som sjunker lite väl snabbt. Doften är liten för en lagunitas, men det doftar av grape, citron och jäst. Smaken är fyllig med tilltagen beska. Eftersmaken är beska som överlever länge. En riktigt bra öl som smakar på lagunitas vis.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0.335/SB. Copper clear. Floral, citrus grapefruity with green grapes, thick caramel on nose. Full bodied, nicely bittered. Some caramel sweetness, but not overpowering nor too thick. Piney stuff, earthy flavours. Pretty good dipa. It’s been a while since I’ve had one that’s not overly thick barley wine- like. Refreshing, tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange /gold pour with a slightly soapy head. Citrus and malt - nothing too complicated on the nose. More malty than expected in taste (based on the aroma) with nice bitter orange notes. Dry, a little sweetness, very lightly carbonated
