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!

"i’ll start by saying this does nothing to make it stand out as a holiday/winter offering, especially when you consider the pethora of ipas lagunitas puts out. that said, it’s pretty damn good as a nice, fresh, flavorful ipa. highly aromatic, spicy, piney, floral. lighter in body than expected, but super smooth, tasty, with a nice bittersweet finish. they stick to their strong point, which isn’t anything new, but i like it better than the beer it temporarily replaced."

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from quart(!) bottle into tulip. Translucent golden yellow with foamy white head that sticks around. Scent has some floral hops and earthy grains. Flavor is a balance of sweet-ish grainy malt and fresh earthy floral hops. Feel is smooth and wet and creamy all at once. This is a great beer, perfect balance, great flavors.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautifull golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is strange. Some slight onion and garlic with pine and hints of citrus. Also notes of tropical fruit and stone fruit like apricot or nectarines. Notes of strawberry as well. Definitely sweet on the nose. Taste is slight pine up front with milder citrus fruit, orange, lemon/lime. Sweet malt, hidden alcohol, finish is mild but lingering and works well. Not an offensive beer at all, super sessionable. Grains don’t shine in this one, but it works. Body on this is tremendous for 8%.

Love the quart bottle and the golden beer that followed. Aroma of bread yeast and spice. Taste of bitter hop melded with malt for a cereal everspice with hint of liquorice. Medium length finish.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
It pours golden in color with a light peach colored head. it leaves lacing as the head retreats. It is hoppy with aromas of rye, oats, citrus, and a whiff of barley. There is strong flavors of rye, citrus, and a combination of oats and barley. It goes down well in a way that is fully complimentary of the burst of complex flavors.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy, very slightly hazed orange yellow with a super sticky white head that thins out quickly but leaves tons of lace, nice. Aroma of candied citrus, maybe some wheat or just tons of pale malt, very nice, excellent grass note but its got some more depth to it than just straight grassy hoppy bears, the sweet malt note holds up well. Flavor follows but is just a bit more sweet and sugary that I would like but only by a tad, drinks well but leaves some richness in the aftertaste that sticks around, but it’s winter and that’s just fine. Citrus, candied wheat/pale malt, light metallic bitterness, bit of grapefruit and pine, and some grassy bitterness greeness as well. Excellent beer here.
