Huge surprise from Lagunitas! Gorgeous light golden pour, bright as can be, thick white head. Tons of lace. Aroma was impressive. Super clean citrus fruits, grapefruit and pineapple, light sugar sweetness. Really popped. Flavors were lightly bitter, full of fruity goodness and very well balanced. Enough malt to keep this from being thin, satisfying body and mouth. Carbonation was perfect. This one is a winner. One of the best I’ve had in a while.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a huge bubbly white head that leaves a lot of lacing behind. Aroma is big, sweet and hoppy, of brown sugar, malt, pine hope, and a hint of candied citrus. Rich taste, of candied citrus, malt, sugar, toffee, then picks up a big hoppy bite. Lingering sweet hops. Very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Caramel, grapefruit, and pine resin in the aroma. Bitter, fruity pine flavor with a little lingering fruit sweetness and some alcohol in the finish. More of an IPA than a pale ale, but still really tasty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blindprovning med Gambrinus Uppsala (vad som visar sig vara en Lagunitasprovning). Första tanken är att alla fyra bärs är samma öl!. Dominerade husprofil? När värmen stiger i glasen så blir dock skillnaderna tydligare. Gyllene och klar. Bra humlad och lite örtigt. Aningen spretig ihängande beska men bäst av de fyra Lagunitas för kvällen.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. bottle served in a Bell’s Tulip.
A: Pours a clear peach with some straw colored hues around the edges. A 1 finger white head forms on the pour and subsides to a nice ring. Nice sheets of lace are left down the glass.
S: Bursts of citrus and sweet fruits. Grapefruit, apple and mango are some of the great smells coming out. A very slight pine is on the backend.
T: The citrus just pops in your mouth. Grapefruit and orange citrus with a faint hint of sweet mango. Some light biscuit malts show themselves as well. The finish is a slight bitter pine.
M: Lively mouth with great carbonation. Light to medium bodied with a subtle sticky feel to it. Highly drinkable.
O: Just like everyone else, I was shocked and pleasantly surprised by this guy. The citrus bursts in your mouth and the malts and slight pine bitterness really balance it out. The drinkability is off the charts.

Aroma contains strong hops and pines with a heavy grapefruit and citrus. Appearance is a light gold with a medium foam. Taste is balanced hops, pines, grapefruit and citrus. Nice piney/herby finish. Overall, a strong, full flavor. Nice bitter and hoppy flavor. I’d give this an A rating

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from 32 oz mega-bomber a medium golden hue, clear with a nice white foamy head. Aroma immediate floral, mangoes and papayas. Sweet bready malts come into play as well. Flavour is big chewy malt with tons of fruits and citus in the middle with a tart grapefruit near the finish. A resinous smack of bitter hops compliment the end too along with a light note of pine and tropical fruit. A big beer to be well enjoyed. Lagunitas has a big hit here.
