4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
6 pack from Chuck’s 85th. Pours bright golden orange with thick white head. Aroma is tart citrusy earthy hops with underlying sweetness. Taste is sweet lighter caramel malt followed by big fresh juicy hop flavors - grassy, grapefruit, and pine notes. Finishes cleanly bitter. Lots of hype around this one... and it passes the test. This is legitimately delicious. Kind of a de-tuned Stone ’Enjoy by... IPA’. Easily the best Lagunitas I’ve had, and that’s saying something. They need to find room for this in the regular lineup.

From me, for an IPA to score this high is unprecedented. Not a big IPA fan usually do to the fact that the big name IPAs are too tart or sour. This IPA is perfectly balanced, giving it good grapefruit tartness, but no bitter beer face pucker at the end. Great fruity aroma without sweetness. Really nice break from the stouts that flood the market in winter.

Pine, citrus on both aroma and body. Solid hop backbone that hides the alcohol very well

Draft. Dank and hoppy the aroma is. The appearance is a clear burnt golden with a creamy, white head. The taste starts hoppy an stays that way through out. A little citrus twist takes place in the middle then a spiciness hits the tongue at the end. Pretty nice. Palate is bitter hoppy with a hint of the lagunitas dank. Overall, a good beer. Will prolly order again.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden hue with a 2 finger off white head. Good retention and lots of sticky lace. Sinus clearing citrus hop aroma featuring grapefruit. Lots of pine resin as well. Bitter/sweet flavors with the hop bitterness perfectly balanced with malty sweetness. Full bodied with resinous tongue coating. Bitter, lingering finish.

Bottle pours dark gold fair head. Smells tastes of hops heavy. Pine. Some mango maybe. Has nice crisp bite. Spices. Sweet at first turning bitter. It’s semi thin. Not bad at all lots of flavor. I can see why people like it but so much flavor I don’t think I’d like more then one at a time.

Growler. Clear light amber/orange with a dense white head and some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, candied oranges and some light cereal grain. Flavor is lots of hops with a firm bitterness, mild malt and some light bubble gum. Medium body with a long, dry, bitter finish. Fantastic beer, super fresh and hoppy.

Light, hoppy, fizzy, lots of carb. Needs more body. Also needs more flavor. Meh.
