4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2012 12 oz bottle. I was sad to have missed this on tap, but I’ll keep a lookout since I’ve been a (relatively) good boy this year. I was shocked by the light orange, almost pink-tinted pour. I was still lightly under the impression this was going to somehow be a Christmas ale, of the traditional sort. Nose is typical Lagunitas hoppy goodness, with a bit of the typical Lagunitas farmhouse funkiness. The taste has the first burst of hoppiness, but a bunch of livliness and high fruit behind. Bit of Hop Stoopid, bit more of Sumpin Sumpin, and a hint of the "wild". I like it a bunch. The more I drink it, the more I like it. It’s very similar to what Iremember the first batches of Hop Stoopid being.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden yellow color that has a sparkle to it. Aroma is distinctly floral along with its taste. Notes of grass, herbs, and high amounts of malt are tasted in this beer. A decent IPA that was complex and made with quality.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Marketime in Fremont. Fuckin’ right down the street. Vibrant orange appearance with a wispy head. Pungent grapefruit citrus aroma hits my nose immediately. Soft orange citrus to backup the aforementioned aroma. Subtle sweet malt aroma is carrying it all forward. Damn this thing smells great. Light right in there as well. Prickly citrus hop flavor just dances all over my taste buds. Light orange citrus, and a little pine even, are all coming together perfectly. The light right is backing this all up. Fucking shit, this beer is developing really well, and leaving a pleasing bitterness on my tongue that leaves me craving more. The carbonation is oh so slightly too much. Great stuff. Very, very ,very good stuff.

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