4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
$4.49 bomber from Safeway Salinas. Nose is heavy with flowery hops, light pine, and some light nutty and roasted notes. Black with brown edges and a medium, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is bitter and piney with some background nuttiness. Another great, inexpensive offering from the Lagunitas guys!

Pours as black as any stout with a lot of creamy head. The aroma is charcoal and some grassy hops. The flavor adds a really rich, burnt malt with a dense hop finish. It’s not quite as good as Stone’s Self Righteous or Firestone Walker’s Wooky Jack, but it’s a solid black IPA. Well worth it at the reasonable price.

Hoppy with that lagunitas flavor that is hard to pin down. Smells like citrus and pours dark with a tan head. Had out of a bottle at Ahmad's. Decent beer. Strong alcohol.

Totally dark with a large khaki colored head and very good lacing. Resinous hop aroma touched with some roastiness and dark fruit. Taste turns a bit more citrus but the roast is still there to maintain balance. A happy marriage in the aftertaste. Medium-to-full bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is hops, a little floral, grass, spruce. Pours a dark brown with big tan head, mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long and bitter. Very Good!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a solid beer. Hops and citris on the nose, first taste is hops, pine, much like an IPA but the coffee roast taste is stronger and gives this beer a good balance. I bought six of these and they may not last long.
