4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 Bottle. Pours dark yellow/gold with a 2 finger off-white head with a lot of nice lacing. The aroma is hoppy fruit, citrus mostly tangerine, some pine and earthy notes. The taste is excellent. It’s full of fresh, dank resiny hops with a perfect malt balance, candied fruit. The palate is very smooth and light considering the hop flavors. Medium bitterness and light. This is very drinkable and smooth with tons of flavor and character.

@Nedre Mölla 3/5-14. Flaska från Systembolaget. Arom: Persika, aprikos(?), citrus, tallbarr, grapefrukt. Smak: Grapefrukt, citrus, tallbarr, sötma, tydlig beska. Kroppen är medelfyllig, avslutningen bjuder i sin tur på en ganska lång och rejäl beska.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap: Because I won’t buy their bottled beer anymore. Why? They Suck. Body is dark yellow piss. Take note. Aroma is sweet malt &grain, moderately to heavily hoppy extract resin, with notes of soap, sugar syrup, and celery. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, bitter. Finish is too sweet, velvety syrupy texture, alcoholic. Basically grapefruit juice with chemical wax. Hop Stoopid Jr.!!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
WOW!!!!!WHAT IS THIS BEER!!!MY MIND IS BLOWN!! Thanks Jeff for saving me one out of the 60 you bought. Clear peachy gold with a tall rocky crown. MASSIVE peachy hop aroma, pineapple, tangerine, bubblegum, with mild hints of leather. This aroma is epic! Roapy lacing is so very sticky. Taste is so intense, big hop bomb with a leathery malt balance. Pineapple, tangerine, lemon hard candy in the finish. The bitter sneaks up on you, you never really notice it but after a while it builds up and lingers for ever. Pine really shows up in the second half of the bottle, I also just realized that this is supper dry. DAM I WANT MORE OF THESE!!! But some jackass bought the entire stock for the entire city!!!! I know where he lives lets storm his house with pitchforks and jello.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a fluffy white head that slowly drops leaving sticky lace upon the glass. The nose is an enticing blend of big grapefruit and softer piny hop notes over a sweet pale malt. Medium-bodied and soft with a big tongue-squeezing bitterness at the finish. Like the nose, the flavor is a big hit of grapefruit hops over pale malt with a lingering slightly resinous finish. This is some tasty stuff. I hope they screw up their brewing schedule again next year.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a large white head that settles to a medium cap and leaves sheets of lacing on the glass. Aroma is very potent with scents of kumquat, powdered Tang, grapefruit, light booze, and light pine. Aroma gets more piney and herbal as it warms. Flavor holds some tropical fruit, like papaya, with faint mango and tangelo also appearing. Mouthfeel is rather full and rounded while the carbonation is subdued, which leads this to be very drinkable. The finish is fairly bitter and quite dry which leads to a nice transition from the sweet fore and mid. Overall this is a really solid beer that I wouldn’t object to drinking again.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
32 ounce bottle. Pours a honey gold color with a dense rocky beige head. Rich pine and citrus hop aroma. Notes of caramel malt as well. Flavor is caramel and toasted malt with a light spivey nuance. This is a real nice balance of tropical fruit malt and spicy hops that provides a very nice big ale. Lovely clinging lace when all is done.

12oz bottle from Discount Liquor Milwaukee, Leftovers packaging. Pours a crystal clear, bright yellow color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Citra hops. A little heavy on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, the mixture of grains comes through, nice Citra hop taste, with a nice, clean, bitter hop finish. Very tasty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
[Bottle] Pours amber with a nice off-white head that quickly reduces to a thin, lingering film and some larger bubbles. Aroma is very vibrant, with mango, candied pineapple, pine, and grapefruit. Sort of a wood spiciness in there as well. The taste is quite bitter, lots of papaya and grapefruit, mild alcohol, and malt in the finish. Average mouthfeel, fairly smooth, lingering finish. Overall, a really solid beer that I hope Lagunitas makes one of their year-round offerings.
