4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Pours a deep golden orange with a small off white head. Aroma is of citrus hops, pine, weed, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and some rye. Taste is of nice resinous citrus hops, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, sour rye malts, and some fresh cut grass. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, pretty bitter, yet still refreshing finish. Overall, a well made and drinkable IPA that I wish would be available all year now.

Drucken på flaska. Orange, lite grumlig med fin krona. Luktar torkad frukt, apelsin och bröd. Smakar fantastiskt gott, härlig humle med fin maltsmak. Lättdrucken, men ändå trevligt sällskap hela kvällen.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lagunitas has been consistently good to excellent in its lineup of offerings (in my experience; the numbers say a median rating of 4.2 from 21 ratings including this one, with only two scoring below 3.8 and the lowest being 3.3). For some reason I was apprehensive about this one but it turns out to be quite enjoyable. The initial nose triggered "barley wine" thoughts, the appearance that of a slightly hazy Stone-ish IPA, with lots of rising carbonation bubbles. Flavor that of a slightly mild IPA with lots of near-butterscotch sticky sweetness thrown in (which is fine by me in this case, since while it’s lots of sticky sweetness, it’s not too much, although almost too much). Finishes very smooth. Almost sessiony if not so boozy. to be exact I’d rate this 8.7/10 or 4.35 on a 5-point scale.

Aroma and flavors dominated by strong citrus hops. Golden, full bodied backed by sweet malts. So good Lagunitas serves it up in a quart bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 1 Quart Bottle into tulip. Three finger white head dissipates quickly leaving lots of lacing. Aroma is hoppy with hints of citrus. Appearance is light hazy orange. Taste is crisp and lightly sweet with medium bitterness. Hints of citrus and floral hops. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Carbonation is soft to average. Moderately long grapefruit finish.
Overall good enjoyable refreshing beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quart bottle (’cause sometimes, 40 ounces is just too much). Lemon, orange rye malt and pine/grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate white head and nice lacing. Sweet orange biscuit rye malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel/pine flavor. Nice body.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a one quart bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a light, clear dark gold color with a slight touch of amber and a modest foamy white head with shorter retention, but good cling and lacing. The aroma featured a blend of grainy and earthy hops with sugar, spice, and a bit of pine. Its taste was pretty sweet with notes of sugar, molasses, light fruit, and a touch of bitter grainyness at the swallow. The beer had a very lively mouthfeel and was well carbonated with a good fizz and kick, and was somewhat drying in nature.
