Draught at Belmont Station Biercafe in PDX - Beautiful color like a shiny new penny with a rapidly receding white head. Initial aroma is mostly "catiness" with a hint of grapefruit and herbs. Perfectly crafted body has enough resiny qualities to make the flavors stick without being cloying. In the mouth it presents more catiness and some citrus to help balance out the bready, caramelly malts. Aftertaste lingers on for a few minutes after the swallow and causes the far reaches of my mouth to pucker up in ecstacy.
People may knock Lagunitas for having too many over-hopped pale ales and IPAs , but this one is truly delicious.

Draft pour at special brews lagunitas night. Pours copper with a lasting head. Probably the piniest aroma of any beer I’ve tried. A lot of citrus flavor going on here. Super hoppy as expected. Semi sweet finish. Doesn’t stand out as a top IPA for me necessarily, but solid overall. Good stuff.

The body has a nice deep golden color with good clarity and plenty of active carbonation. The aroma has bright citrus hops with notes of grapefruit and lemon over some nice spruce like piney notes. I am also picking up some sweet grain and alcohol. Its medium to full body body starts with citrusy grapefruit and lemon hop flavor notes sweetened buy an almost candy like malt and alcohol. This sweetness slowly fades and the bitterness from the hops builds. The hop flavor notes turn to freshly cut spruce pine, resin and herbal bitterness which hangs onto the tongue and lingers long into the finish.

A tremendous double IPA. Great flavors of citrus/grapefruit, pine, some floral notes, and hops obviously. In addition, a little sweetness with caramel/toffee mixed in. One of my favorites.

Brilliantly clear golden amber colour with thin-medium white head and good lacing. Hop aroma burst out of the glass before my nose even got close to the glass. Sprightly pine and spicy notes are followed by aromas of grapefruit and apricots. Medium oily body. It isn’t harshly bitter despite the 102 IBU, with a nice mildly sweet biscuity malt backing. Finish is nicely rounded with a pleasant touch of alcohol warmth. A real beauty.

Bottle. Orange, grapefruit peel, and toffee malt aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Funky orange malt and moderately bitter cat pee/pine flavor. Nicely blended. Funky.

No kidding, this is a blast of hoppy bitterness that is just terrific. Strong maltiness on the finish. Great aroma. This is a big beer.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 Hop stoopid är välgjord med bra balanser och en fin humle med grape och apelsin smaker som avrundas med en len eftersmak, tyvärr sticker lite alkoholsmak igen mot slutet vilket drar ner betyget men det är inte alls på den nivån som Maximus slår igenom!

Another well balanced Lagunita’s offering. Apparently this was supposed to be a double IPA which I didn’t know until I finished the bottle and read the description on rate beer. Definitely a good one, bitterness overpowering the hop flavors to a small extent but fantastic profile.

Poured from a bomber Aroma - very tropical aroma. Appearance - clear golden color with plenty of bubbles. Taste - easy going down. Hides the 8% very well. Definitely feel the bitter in this beer. Palate- very good lingering taste. Overall - pretty obvious why this beer is rated so high. Another Lagunitas fantastic beer.

Had a bomber of this, well chilled, pours a light golden color with not too much head. Nose is light, first taste is nice with some grapefruit type hints but you can tell it's an IPA. No heavy aftertaste, not bitter, 8% ABV, lists 1021 IBU, a nice beer to go along with a burger ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
