4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium gold pour, 2 finger meringue "substitutes" for a head, leaving some decent lace. Nose is steady, but not overpowering, pine cones. Bitter, with a serious objection from malt. Middle starts light caramel, alcohol shows itself, mango, papaya (green) and sweet malt come together. Finish drips pine resin...for awhile. WOW!

Bottle. Poured a darker yellow almost amber color with a smaller white head. Aroma was almost like an IPA. Strong spruce and hops. Flavor was pine, caramel, and hop bitters. Malty up front and hops in the bitters. A very good beer.

Clear golden color, big frothy white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, resin, biscuit malt. Flavor is tropical fruit, pineapple and mango. Lots of biscuit malt, and a whole bunch of other malt character I can?t quite describe (rye maybe). Hoppy finish. Really good.

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.

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.!!

4.1 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.

Bottle. Pours a vibrant golden orange with a light white head. Aroma is of citrus hops which I wasn’t expecting reading the description on this beer. Holy hell! The taste totally blows me away, this is one of my favorite new DIPAs of the year! "American Strong Ale"?! No way! Tons of grapefruit and citrus here, I love this stuff. Merry Christmas, this doesn’t suck!

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.

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.
