4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"Brown sugga’ substitute" bottle. Pours a clear rich gold, effervescent, large long lasting dull white head and a ton of lace on the glass. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, lightly spicy, and a decent malty backbone. Flavour is pine, citrus, tropical fruits, medium-high bitterness, mild alcohol warming, mildly spicy and bready + caramel malt backbone. Enjoyable, pretty easy drinking, we’ll balanced and if you don’t watch it’ll get you drunk!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass, the aroma was fantastic. Aroma was grapefruits and citrus, spiciness of rye as well. Very pleasant nose. Cloudy in appearance. Very good malt backing to match the hops, more balanced than I expected. A little sweeter than I would have liked but it wasn't that out of place when the aftertaste of the hops comes in.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light gold, good presentation. Beer has a strong hop flavor, but not overwhelming like Hopslam or similar beers. Palate sits in the bitter zone for about 2-3 mins then fades out. Not boozy at all despite relatively high ABV.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 The only thing that sucks about this is I didnt try it sooner. Aroma is malt, citrus, rye and wheat. Poured into glass. Pale gold, moderate lacing and head. Taste is malt, citrus and lingering bitterness. Nice mouthful not to dry. Very good easy to drink, especially at 7 plus percent. Another great beer from a great brewery! Cheers

Bottle. Big citrus hops in the nose. Holy cow! Taste is a mash of grapefruit and grains. Definitely get a little rye and wheat.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. As for the nose, the room is filled with orange-citric and dank wooden hops before I even get the crown all the way off, strong caramel base with dough and spice, plenty of rindy-pithy character and wonderful lychee and mango, guava. Pours rich clear golden with lower-than-average carbonation and a large creamy white head. Taste medium bitter, lightly sweet but drying out somewhat and resolving to that nice bread, which meets a subtle warmth at the back of the throat. Very oily with lighter resinous qualities, strong hoppy flavors remain and have additional grassy/herbal notes here on the down-low. Clean medium body not as crisp as I’d like. Very bright, alive, and yes, joyous! Awesome stuff.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a lovely amber with a quickly dissipating head and a noticeable amount of carbonation. Smell is rather complex; a variety of malts and hops of the citrus variety. The taste is surprisingly bitter. So very easy to put down for such taste, flavor, and alcohol content.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle picked up in Asheville only to find Lagunitas is now in Ohio. Pours a clear dark golden/light amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have nice citrus, orange, tangerine, some resiny hops, lightly toasted bread, a hint of spicy character with mild to moderate bitterness. Very tasty beer at a reasonable cost.
