3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Cletus for the hook up. Near orange pour with a small white head, very clear. Fruit forward hop aroma with a nice malt background showing up. You know, this isn’t quite the tropical fruit hop bomb I’ve been loving lately, but it still has a bunch of great citrus going on as well as a almost appley fruit zest going on. I guess that’s not quite it, because I usually hate the dreaded green apple, but this is more of a sweet red. Certainly interesting. This beer had a ton of hop character yet the bitterness is nearly non existent. Yeah yeah, another crappy review I shouldn’t write, but this deserved a score.

Clear and bright yellow! Nose: WOW! Incredible notes of resin, citrus balanced and mixed with bred malts. Amazing mouth: sweetness and tropical fruit but also caramel and fantastic hops! Great!!!

Bottled. Pours a clear gold with a frothy white head. Big hoppy aroma, earthy, grapefruit. Very resinous, grapefruit flavored IPA in its most classic form. Finishes a little oily and a touch astringent. Terrific IPA.

Det här var inte dumt, smaken var fint balaserad med toner av äpple, grapefrukt, honungsmelon och tallbarr. Kroppen var härligt stabil och balansen var, som tidigare påpekats, riktigt fin. Slutsats; köp den och drick den!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- Pine, spruce, bitter, citrus, dank, resin.
A- Orange color, hazy liquid, off white head.
T- Pine, bitter, herbal, subtle citrus.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- For some reason I expected this to be like a barleywine. I guess in a sense it was...but not really. More like an aggressive IPA from hell. Loved the aroma but the taste was a little too much for me. Liked it more than I thought I would.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2012 12oz bottle.
Golden orange with a good amount of white head. Great nose of pine and resin - flavors of grapefruit and other citrus fruits. Good amount of bitterness and nicely balanced. I hope they continue to brew this beer every year as I really enjoyec it.

Nice IPA. Balanced, but towards the bitter end of IPAs -- which I expect from Lagunitas! Nice floral and citrus notes. Is deep in flavor. Recommended.

Amber, clear, and a nice foamy head. Bitterness from the hops tastes great but lingers a little long. Otherwise a respectable beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Pours a clear golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lace.
S - Aroma is full of citrus hops and candied pineapple, grapefruit, and mango, some floral hops, and some sweet caramel malts.
T - Starts off with a strong kick of grapefruit and pineapple hops with some good bitterness and a bit of sweet caramel malts growing from the background. Through the middle, some pine and floral hops come through with some more citrus flavor and bitterness. The finish is a mix of sweet candied tropical and citrus fruits, bitterness, grassy hops, and some sweet malt.
M - Medium bbodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a resiny and fairly dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice big hoppy DIPA with a great hop profile. I really like how strong the candied tropical fruits are.
