4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Reviewed 2/22/13.Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle! 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a nasty-looking dark piss color. The head is a two finger spoiled milk shade that looks like cottage fuckin’ cheese. Why is there so much ugly-ass lacing left on my glass?
S: This is full of gross melon, gross papaya, gross herbal pine, gross mango, and...well, it’s just gross. Smells like an awesome-- ERR I mean wet ass.
T: Yikes, and just when I thought it couldn’t get any nastier, it does! The opening is nothing but mellow-- I mean nasty tropical fruits. Bah, who really likes tropical fruits? It tastes like a damn rainforest! It finishes with a soft, malty sweetness, which totally sucks ’n’ stuff, too. And ewww, is that onion on the aftertaste? Who wants onion in their beer? NOT ME, GOOD SIR!
M: Light, delicate, subtle, and crisp - and it sucks. Yeah, it fuckin’ sucks. I’ve never stated my preference toward light and delicate DIPAs before in my life, you’re all nuts! /angryface I mean, sure, it’s drinkable, but that’s only because I want to get rid of it so quickly! Aw crap, I’m not near a drain...I guess I’ll just pour it into my mouth more. Because it fuckin’ sucks so much.
O: Yuck! Lagunitas Sucks indeed. It’s so bad I’m discouraging everyone out there of buying it...so I can snatch the remainder up for-- I mean, cuz it’s gross an’ shit. Yeah, that’s it. This is most definitely not a fantastic DIPA that I wish I could drink a case of, no, you guys are all reading into things WAY too much. Like I said, this sucks I WANT MORE I WANT MORE NOW!

12 oz. bottle. Nice beer for sipping in the summer. Aromas of citrus and hops. Tastes of grapefruit and citrus, hops and breads. Will have this beer again, soon.

Growler from McHughs. Pours cloudy golden with white foam head. Citrus, pineapple, pine, coconut, mango, bubblegum, candy floss. Flavour is sherbert, bubblegum, fizzy sweet, sticky caramel, sugar. Full bodied. Probably sweetest beer I’ve had. Orange aftertaste. A bit unexpected but good beer.

Half pint on-tap at Euston Tap, London:
Another excellent Lagunitas beer, not as hoppy as I’d expected with sweet malts taking the front seat but some did feature & the balance was a good one. The beer proved to be quite an easy one to drink as well, despite the strength. One well worth seeking out if you can find it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium gold pour, 2 finger meringue "substitutes" for a head, leaving some decent lace. Nose is steady, but not overpowering, pine cones. Bitter, with a serious objection from malt. Middle starts light caramel, alcohol shows itself, mango, papaya (green) and sweet malt come together. Finish drips pine resin...for awhile. WOW!

One of if not my favorite of the beers I tried for the first time this year. The sweetness of the beer is subtle, but it’s there and makes this a delicious beer. It’s especially great on a hot day and it has become one of the regulars in my fridge

Draught at The Euston Tap, London. Golden amber with slim white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy, juicy fruity hops. Lots of citrusy hops in the taste, orange peel, pine. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, long and big bitter finish. Very good.

Funny premise. It's a good medium body almost IPA. I know they made it in 2011 so it has aged well. Also comes in a fun 1 quart size.

Smells slightly sweet and a little grassy from the hops, pours a gold color with a small nice white head, taste is sweet with a bit of a bitter bite at the end of it. The only thing that sucks about this beer is I don’t have any more of it.

Hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma is hoppy, piney, malty, sweet. Taste is soothingly sweet, good malt body, pines, moderately bitter. Good beer, good complexity.
