4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, light orange with minimal white head. Aroma is super tropical and citrus. Loads of pineapple and mango. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Again, a bunch of pineapple and citrus. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, awesome. One of my favorites from lagunitas.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Look: Nice orange body, lively carbonation. 1/2 finger white head. Smell: Apricots, citrus (lemon grass, tangerine), mild mango, tobacco, wheat/ straw notes. Taste: Apricots, flowery citrus, pine needles, biscuit sweetness, fossil alcohol before the bitter finish. Feel: Medium-light body nice active carbonation. Overall: This reminds me of a more alcoholic Sculpin, (I’m not complaining). The aroma shines bright. The alcohol flavor dampens the hops in the flavor for me. Yet it is still highly drinkable at almost 8% ABV. This brew is worthy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Big sewery-citrus stink, swamp gas. Pale straw color. Hops + tropical fruit initial: peach. mango, some pine / weird mix in mid palate: sharp bitterness, strange maltiness (four types of grain), and even what seems like some funk / smooth aftertaste with some alc. Medium body. Extreme flavors for what really isn’t such a big beer. Doesn’t suck in the slightest.

Spiced citrus honey marmalade malt permeating the typical lagunitas IPA hop profile. Interesting yet balanced flavors from the different grains

Bottle. Pours clear dark orange, near copper with a medium, frothy and bubbly white head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is citrus, earthy, herbal, and resin hops, sweaty gym sock notes, apricot and pear esters with light cracker malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light supporting malt, medium fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
light golden with slight hop haze and with small fizzy white topper, modest lacing. one of the finest aromas ever on an ipa, all sorts of citrus and light fruity/flowery. I think it smells the closest to Heady Topper I can recall at the moment. The mixed malts really make on nice scaffold to hang the hops on with no overbearing carapils to ruin things. medium carbonation, refreshing and quaffable all day long.
