4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear golden with a thick white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, grain, bread, and just a hint of fig. Slick and bubbly palate. Flavor is of bittersweet citrus and floral hops, yeast, oat, pine, and earthyness. Leaves a nicely balanced citrus hop taste in the end. Great stuff!

Golden with white head. Grapefruit hop aroma. Taste is malty sweetness up front. Long pine/grapefruit citrus finish. Slight dank hop flavor too. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh beer served in a tulip. The beer pours a fairly transparent yellow orange with a thin white head that shrinks down pretty quick and leaves ok lacing. Aroma is oranges, tangerine, grapefruit, pine, and sweet caramel. On to the taste. At first sip the beer is initially full of bright citrus flavors. Mainly the ones aforementioned in the aroma. It is met with a nice caramel malt with bits of toffee and brown sugar as well. The beer starts off very juicy and finishes a bit dry, but remains very quenching. Another outstanding offering from Lagunitas, and @ 8%, it’s just dangerous enough to have some fun with. Excellent beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber into the glass with a 1-finger soapy head that reduces to webbed lacing. The nose is of pine and grassiness. Flavors of a huge grain bill, cereal, citrusy grapefruit and orange, and large resinous pine hops finish with a hint of ABV among the large pepper and spruce-pine notes. Almost in the barleywine category, this complex, substantive palate wrecker is full-bodied with a very bold mouthfeel. Huge beer with lots and lots to provide.

1qt bottle to pub glass. Like a fresh breakfast on a distant shore. Very heavy grapefruit with subtle honey and notes of molasses. Warm malty finish. As close to a perfect ale as I can remember. Tongue, prepare yourself.

Sucks should be in the beer hall of fame. The hops characteristics give deep floral aroma, malt rich taste, and a long hops heavy finish. You really don’t want the finish to end.

What’s not to like about this aromatic hop masterpiece. I’m so glad they "screwed up" and had to make this beer. Beautiful golden color, crisp, delicious hoppy ale.

LAGUNITAS DOSE SUCK BECAUSE THEY DO NOT MAKE PLINY (MY #1 FAVOURITE BEERS) AND THEY HAVE NEVER EVEN TRYED TOO! THIS BEER IS OK THOUGH :AT FIRST I SMELLED IT UP MY NOSE AND IT ACTUALLY SMELL A GOOD AMOUNT AS AN PLINY (I LOVE PLINY, YOU KNOW), AND FOR THAT IT FELT GOODS IN ME. UNFORNTUNATLY - IT DOES NOT HAVE FLAYVER LIKE A PLINY AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE NATTY WE DRINK AT BBQS SOMETIMES. SO LIGHT AND IT COULD DEFINITELY USED MORE ALCOHOL. I DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO THERE HOPS, BUT I BEARLY TASTE ANY. MORE MORE MORE!!

32oz - Beer pours a nice gold color with a nice head. Quickly you pick up citrus on the nose. The first taste is complex and hard to read at first. Swish it around and you pick up some citrus and pine but also other flavors. Bitter finish and dry. Nice mouth feel. I would buy this again and I will.
