3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is tropic and also sweet malty. Taste is at first a little stingy/peppery, but that evolves into a smooth very light bread feeling and a nicely balanced hop presence. The only thing that sucks with this beer is that it isn’t in the regular stock in our stores in Sweden

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap at Atwood’s Tavern, 1:57 pm. To tulip it ours a hazy orangeade with a trim white head. Aromas of magnolia flowers, limes, chamomile, guava, white wine lees, and algae. Tastes of limes, kilned malt, hops, and whiskey dregs. Plastic, onions, and yeast by swallow. Honestly, what’s all the commotion about?

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from McHughs. Pours cloudy golden with white foam head. Citrus, pineapple, pine, coconut, mango, bubblegum, candy floss. Flavour is sherbert, bubblegum, fizzy sweet, sticky caramel, sugar. Full bodied. Probably sweetest beer I’ve had. Orange aftertaste. A bit unexpected but good beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Damn this is good. It’s almost like Bell’s Hopslam, just less alcohol. Tons of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Very danky as well. Taste is very hop forward with a lot of citrus and tropical fruit. Sooo damn good.

Fruity malty aroma. Taste is citrus and floral hop predominantly. Well balanced and full flavored. Really a solid beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden brown, thin white head. Fruity aroma, lemon-lime, apricot and some pine notes. Very nicely balanced. Crisp bitterness, some floral touches and a light grapefruit pith flavor. Full mouth feel, without being overladen with malty sweetness. Good stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beer is damn good. I’ve never had brown shugga, so I don’t know what I’m missing, but I hope they make this one again. It’s a great IPA, really, with an awesome hop aroma and clean, bitter palate. Very refreshing. What makes it unique is the compelxity of the malt...cereal as they call it. Doesn’t look like much but has a grea flavor and awesome west coast hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewpub. More piney than floral hops abound in a somewhat mute fashion in this one. Very good AMA hoppy, fresh beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome one from Lagunitas! Snifter pour of deep gold to copper liquid with a light head. Nose is healthy hop and hearty. Deep hops and heavy. Flavor is similar, fully hopped, juicy and green. Fresh and earthy. Lotsa resin and pine. All over, this is a killer beer. Almost a double ipa.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I sniff and think ‘spongy,’ the bubbliness of the aroma, the way grapefruits seem cushiony, as well as leather, wood smoke. blond leaning toward amber, modest white head. thin, serrated presence in the mouth. flavor on the sweet side, with some woodsy bitterness, \hnint of lemon. a little smoke. balanced finish.
