12 ounce bottles. Pours a hazy, chunky, golden with a one inch white head. Taste is of hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, malt and yeast. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a dry finish. Easy to drink and quite pleasant.

Okay, I like this beer quite a bit, but I think this is w/o question the wittiest (and longest) description of a beer I have seen yet on this site, so I gave it an extra couple of points for crafty self-deprecation of writing style........ "Whatever"

Tasted on 5/14/13 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Tops. Pours clear orange bronze with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to spotty lace. The nose is a classic, very nice combo of resin hops and caramel malt. The flavor is the same, very balanced, with some nice balance. The body is medium and somewhat sticky with fairly lively carbonation and a long resinous bitter hoos finish,

355 mL bottle. An IPA that is leaning dangerously into ASA territory. But that’s okay; I love ASA.

Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks zvikar. Clear golden orange, white head. Grapefruit, pine and rather delicate aroma, bitter, also piney and delicate taste. Rather light body, citrusy finish.

12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet - enjoyed in a Cantillon glass whilst watching game 6 of Leafs v. Bruins (so sucks might apply nicely). Hazy gold, large white lasting head. Hops. Hopz. HOPZ!!!! Average body, light astringency, catty APA type finish - bloody nice. These guys don’t get enough love.

2013-04-29. Crisp bright orange body, small off white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, oily resiny orange citrus. 7++ Flavour is similarly hoppy, with lots of resiny citrus oil characteristics, orange peel and light alcoholic undertones, particularly in the finish. Very smooth medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3++ Solid, relatively simple but very nice hop character throughout. Bottle at Farmhouse, Burlington

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle.
Pours a clear copper colour with a white creamy head. Aroma of caramel, resin, cereal and hay. Flavour of caramel malts, resin, floral hops, grass and some metallic notes, as I’ve had on other Lagunitas brews as well. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, floral, metallic finish. Somehow I don’t like these Lagunitas beers that much as the metallic notes tend to ruin the flavour.
