Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 22 oz bomber. Dark orange pour, silky white head that leaves luxurious sticky lacing on the glass. Extremely fresh, sweet fresh aroma with loads of floral notes, clean piney spruce and hints of citrus. Flavor is full of ctrusy grapefruity goodness but is not lip puckering bitter - it’s almost as if someone poured hops directly into the glass. Slight bitterness is balanced out by a nectar sweet caramel syrupy sweetness. Been a while since I have been bowled over a hop bomb - maybe it is my longing to get back out west. Thick, sticky mouthfeel - enjoyed this one immensely.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 14, 2009
22 oz bottle attractively priced at $3.99 at Green’s in Atlanta. Pours a hazy amber body with a medium beige head. Huge aroma of citrusy marmelade. Orange, pineapple, and mango notes really jump out. Medium body is a bit chewy with toasty caramel but a spritzy carbonation blends all the elements into a balanced delight. Taste leans toward pink grapefruit and mango, with a prominent orange marmalade element. Alcohol is concealed quite well. Extremely drinkable and the price is right.

I could have started with the aroma, worked down to the the appearance, etc., and done the dicing of this beer. The long and short of it is that this is an epitomical AIPA. Good balance, grapefruit all over the place, caramel, sweet, thick mouth, big beer. Long, sticky citrus finish. Big beer, nice drinking, even for someone who’s not a hophead. Sturdy work by Lagunitas. Market Square Liquors.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Bomber from the local shop down the road. A sparkling, golden-orange body with a lasting, filmy head and blanketing lacing. Looks sticky and vibrant. In your face grapefruit and lemon aromas backed up by fresh flowers and heavy pine. Good abundant scent to make the mouth start to water. Bitingly bitter feel with a medium, dry body. Fairly warming to the belly with a lingering bitterness. Fresh oranges and lemony grapefruit followed by resinous pine and a noticeable biscuit/bread malt backbone. Not as over the top as I was anticipating considering the 102IBU claim on the bottle, either way it was more than satisfying.

very nice and fresh aroma--prominently pine and somewhat spicy; lightly cloudy, golden body with white soapy head and fair lacing; excellent flavor--notes of grapefruit, orange zest, and dough; smooth; great drinking overall.

Pours deep gold into a shaker. Off-white head recedes to skim rim. Resin and pine aromas. Deep dark caramel upfront with a lasting grapefruit finish.

I was surprised by the sweetness and overall fruity nature of this one. Almost barley wine in flavor. Very good overall.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2011 Clean light gold, brilliantly so, with an oily white head that left a uniform thin lacing down the glass. Clean concentrated hop aroma, crisp with orange peel. Light bodied, clean consistent focused west coast hop character. Not a lot of depth but plenty of flavor. Sessionable beer for hopheads were it not 8.2%. 040511 Liking this more than the previous 3.4. Abrasive blend of Summit and Simcoe. I think. Gives me my big resiny fix.
