3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 Pours a crystal clear gold with a frothy white head. Smells very sweet, predominantly of candied grapefruit peel, tangerine, and honey - solid bready malt backbone. Tastes bitter and sweet (ha) and similar to the nose, more honey and some lemon. Medium bodied, kind of chewy and sticky, with a bit too much carbonation. Overall good but not great - very sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is a bit too sweet, but a good earthy grassy smell. Appearance is a bit too yellow, but head was good. Taste is hoppy and not too sweet, actually a good bitterness. Palate is not too thick, and is a bit dry for an ipa. Like the mix of sweet aroma but dry palate.

Tap. Pint glass. Light gold with big frothy white head. Hoppy resin aroma. A bit of grapefruit taste, then oily and resin. Crisp with long lasting dry finish. Very lagunitas and very good. Does not suck.

Bottle. Big citrus hops in the nose. Holy cow! Taste is a mash of grapefruit and grains. Definitely get a little rye and wheat.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy rich gold, white head. Aroma of fruity and floral hops. A touch of sweetness and some interesting flavors that I think are coming from the addition of multiple grains. Hops dominate though and are more citrus than the nose. Hop character lasts for the long, pleasantly evolving finish. An interesting little twist on a hop-forward American IPA.

Pours hazy gold with white head, the haze is big chunks of sediment. Aroma is tropical fruit. Nice tropical fruit and citrus hop profile. Caramel malts, not terribly bitter. Really good.

Pretty much a double ipa. Big citrus, with bitter pine or peel notes; melon/peaches. Similar to a good Southern Tier 2xipa. Good lead in to Hopslam next month. Leaves a great resiny hue on the palate.

Clear, orange-pink pout, head dissipates quickly except along the side of the glass. Grapefruit and peach in the aroma. Flavor is a concentration of the aroma (initial peach/grapefruit, followed by grapefruit bitterness), and crisp.
