4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of orange zest, apricot and hops. Incredibly light on the palate, offering a blast of intense stone fruit and citrus, bready yeast complexity, and a finish of well-balanced, spicy hops that linger long and cover the ABV well. Sessionable, with a never ending finish. They should probably just keep making this one....

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Pours a clear, semi-dark gold with almost white head that’s a little short but leaves a good lace. Lots of grapefruit and spruce sap on the nose with a caramel back and what seems to me to be candi sugar. A little sweet on the palate and a big letdown from the nose. There’s some good hops but something offsets them. Definitely good but ultimately odd brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma and appearance of a Double IPA. Tastes like an earthy IPA, but smoother, less bitter. Very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a big, foamy white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is of hops, malt, pine, and caramel. Taste starts off with a bitter, piney hop burn. So very resiny. The hops are evened out by a caramel malt backbone. Lingering hop burn. Mouthfeel is light and soapy. Body is medium and drinks real easy. The alcohol is definitely there. Drinks very easy.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Pours a pale gold with healthy off white head that lasts forever and leaves amazing lacing. Aroma is loaded with juicy, fleshy, citrusy hops, also with some pine. Taste is grapefruit, tropical fruit, sweet caramel malts with an ideal bitterness. Palate is medium bodied, super smooth, above average carbonation. Overall everything works well together. Rich and juicy.
Pours golden orange with average-sized head that dissipates into a thin film. Aroma is so good, with mango, pineapple, and hop resin. Taste is more tropical fruits, piney hops, remaining very sweet into a mild bitterness and mild bready aftertaste. Palate is medium-bodied with a healthy amount of carbonation. Overall, very well done. 9+4+8+4+15=4.0

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. Bottle. Pours a very slightly cloudy orange-copper with a two fingers of rocky white head. Good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, slight pine, hop resin. Flavor is hoppy up front, fading into creamy citrus tones, slight pine and herbal in the finish. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and a smooth, slightly oily texture. Very smooth, nice citrus hop profile, very good. Lagunitas rocks.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle to narrow chalice. Honey colored pour with a splotchy white head. Big tropical fruit nose; mango, papaya, and guava nectar coupled with grapefruit and other citrus juices. Taste is as hoppy as the nose but with a little more resin and alcohol heat. It’s like a mini-Pliny the Younger. Very hop-forward. Moderate mouthfeel and the finish is the only thing you taste: hops.
