3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mason jar pour at Tyler’s Durham. Glowing bright orange, as with most Lag pales, and mighty inviting at that. Super fresh and serious mango in the nose. More bitter flavors to balance in the taste, and it finishes dry, but the overall personality is brightly fruity. Yummy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Tyler’s carrboro. Light cloudy golden with a thick fizzy and fluffy off white head. Nose shows some light butter upfront, very herbal, grassy, light tropical fruits. Flavor is equally herbal, almost like an herbal tea with light citrus. A very familiar herbal taste that I can’t place- maybe its this new
experimental hop. Very leafy.

Draft @ OBF ’12. Very interesting and unique beer. Forgot to take notes on this one but remember not ever tasting anything like it. Lagunitas genius at work once again.

Tap @ OBF 2012, smooth, crisp, refreshing. Many 40 IBU beers are too bitter for me, this isn’t at all. No nasty phenolic flavors either like so many at the OBF this year.

Tap @ OBF... Poured pale, vibrant orange with a white head. Foamy mouthfeel. Tropical fruit flavor with clean hop characters. Balanced and a touch of bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at OBF. Pours hazy light orange. Aroma is citrus and a little more. Med body. Flavor is very unusual. Lots of hop. Thought burnt rubber for a moment - not so tho. But there is a strong unfamiliar flavor. It’s a good flavor. Overall it’s hoppy and spicy. Just excellent.
