3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright gold transparent color with small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma and flavor have strong vegetable, grassy hops, like broccoli or something. It’s hardly the citrus, grapefruit, fruity, tropical bomb everyone is saying. If that’s what you want there are better options. I got a 6 pack of it and am rating the last beer, but each experience has been the same. I really wanted to love this beer- may be a bit overhyped. With that said, it was still okay overall- and as always, good price.

Great overall flavor. Pours with nice head. Wonderful upfront hop flavors with a nice balanced finish and not too bitter.

On tap. Cloudy gold pour with a thick foamy white head. Tons of thick lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and sweet malts. Taste just like it smells. Sweet candies and citrus. Very refreshing. Full bodied. Almost chewy. Love it!

amber color; citrusy, bready aroma; lots of citrusy, grassy hops up front with an underlying bready malt base, and a dry, bitter finish; a really great beer

Bottle. The aroma is fresh cut grass. The pour is golden straw. The taste on this is aggressive hops and some faint malt complexity. Really great beer - maybe the best "substitute" anything ever made.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
12oz into a tulip. Pours an orange marmelade light mixture with nice lacing and a faint bubbly head, 2cm. Aroma is sweet, hoppy, bursting with hop freshenss, is this not an ipa? Smells like one. Very sweet and resin like flowing to the nose, Orange, aprioct, mango, peach jam as well. Taste is sweet hops, just picked, orange, mango, bannana, peach, hops again, and sugar. Drinkability is wonderful, not too sweet and the hop fresheness prevails over it all, this is a nice ipa. Another stellar brew form Lagunitas.

Oh yeah this hits the IPA spot. Had it on tap at Jerry’s Sandwich Shop in Wicker Park Chicago. Pours a rich clear copper hue with a medium white head. Great hop malt aroma that belies the delicious taste of this fine brewski!!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden tan with a thick head. Immediate sweet sugary aroma. First taste is almost like dandelions with a brown sugar aftertaste that finishes with a metallic lager.

I don’t care what Geoff Abell (GAbell)says, this is delicious every year! Cheap and AMAZING! Golden halo in color with an amazing pine smell that either reminds me of a C9 lit Christmas tree or a glorious resin ball from a freshly used bong! Taste is spot on! Resiny goodness that makes me long for next Christmas. F Brown Shugga, this is where its at!

Bottle at home. Citrusy aroma. Pours clear gold. Think frothy head. Nice bitterness. Mild grapefruit lingers on the palate. Very nice.
