3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is fairly clear, light golden, with a frothy, fine bubbled, two finger white head into this glass. It retains fairly well, with a ton of cobweb present. The nose is floral, piney, caramel, biscuits.... The flavor profile is clean initial ; it moves to bread, cereal, tropical sweetness presents itself with grapefruit notes and light grasses - Bittering notes are modest, with cracker crust and pine rounding things out. I found my tastebuds wanting more out of this one - a more robust version, basically.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a somewhat hazy golden/orange with solid fluffy head. On the nose are floral hops, fresh oranges/orange juice, grapefruit, definitely fruity on the nose mellowing out the hops. Taste is very fruity, much orange juice, grapefruit, strong but balanced hop character, somewhat sweet, touch of resin, moderate carb. Quite literally bursting with flavor, extremely balanced. A top tier IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #947 - February 2nd, 2014 - #beerguychrisgeekbeer Week 5. Super Bowl Beer. Special order bottle from coop. Love beers with a haphazard story line, and mumble mumble, this beer speaks volumes about ’thrown together for the helluvit’. Pours a copper amber, and exudes hoppiness right from the get go, powerful citrusy, grapefruity, fruity hops on the nose. Medium heavy carbonation, medium alcohol warmth. ABV disguised by hop character, truly and boldly. Extremely balanced, pleasant sweetness, smooth bitterness. Lots of fruit, lots of rye and malt, lots of hop bitterness. So gewd. Doesn’t suck at all.

What a great beer. No surprise though coming from Lagunitas. Aroma has a pleasant, mild pine aroma. Appearence is clear orange. Nothing special. Head disappeared fairly quickly. Taste is, on the other hand, very special. Sweet carmely start, with a rich, hoppy middle that melts away. Sucks? Ha!

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Colour of cognac or whiskey or something. Lacing is appealing. Luminous and entrancing colour like a jewel. Flavour is filled with sweet bitterness that keeps me coming back for more. I’d like to have more of it.
