3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden with moderate carbonation and a foamy, two finger head that dissipates quickly. Spicy hops up front on the nose, along with some grassy/piney hops and a bit of resin. Tongue is very similar, hops with minimal backbone. Lighter bodied beer with medium length finish. This was ok, but doesn’t stand out.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Its pale and really hazy. Crispy clean malt flavor of light crackers with grapefruity hop presence and a bit of sweet...apricot? midpalate, dry and really just a solid tasty pale.

Bottles at some way upscale restaurant in Tempe AZ.
Cooper pour, modest head. Hoppy nose, slightly metallic. Heavily hopped (but not so leafy) for an APA, less overdone caramel malt than with other Lagunitas beers. I’d call it a drinkable but by no means exceptional IPA.

In the vein of beers that are as hoppy as they come this one is up there... I feel like it should be an ipa (written from notes(i was quite blitzed at this point)).

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light straw gold with two fingers of frothy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim and moderate lacing. Nose is dominated by hops, pine and citrus, with very little malt in the back. Taste is dominated by grapefruit, maybe a very little dry cracker. Mouth feel is on the light side, with an astringent and oily hop finish. A nicely hoppy pale ale and very drinkable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the Euston Tap, London on 28 March 2014. Poured a clear, deep golden colour with a dense white head. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus and biscuity malt. Initial flavours of ripe grapefruit, passion fruit and chewy malt. Finish was very nicely rounded hop bitterness, mixed with syrupy fruit and dry grain.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pretty and appetizing clear amber - not much head, but that is how it got poured. Bold aroma has sweet malt and resiny hops in equal strength, almost more an IPA than a "regular" pale ale. Flavor is more hoppy than malty, scarcely bitter, with a whisper of caramel. Firm texture has a strong, persistent fizz. Will have you barking for more!

Keg @ Euston Tap. Seems this brewery can do no wrong. Great hop aroma, great hop bite, floral with a slight bitterness. Hugely enjoyable American Pale.

A- Pours a crisp copper hue with a nice, 2 finger frothy head.
S- Very fragrant and hoppy, floral, plinyesque.
T- Very floral hops up front and throughout, light fruits in the middle, grapefruit towards the end.
M- A bit thin with lots of carbonation.
D- This is an excellent offering by Lagunitas. Strangely reminiscent of Russian River’s IPAs
