Very beautiful cascading reddish amber. Lots of hops, like a Double IPA. Bitterness swells up and stays around. Very tasty brew, lots of flavors hard to pick out. Creamy palate, very full bodied. Real nice job, impressive considering how much hops and alcohol must be packed into this.

12 oz bottle - pours clearish crimson-orange, medium white head, mostly lasting. Cool rainfall lacing. Creamy orangey hops and good malts and biscuit on the nose. Nice, balanced palate. Grassy notes, oranges, and little citrus. Herby finish. Good deal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at O’Briens. Just have to say this is definitely one of the coolest bottles i’ve seen in a long time... the labeling is just great! Ok, to the rating... pours a clear brown color with a small, thin head. Aroma is nutty and malty with a slight sweet note at the end. Flavor is malty and sweet with a slightly grassy hint that lingers at the end. Very smooth and slightly bubbly on the palate. I enjoyed this beer more than I thought i would and i’m duly impressed with their form of protest to their shutdown last year!

Amber pour. My first Lagunitas and didn’t know what to expect. This was a way pleasant surprise. Sweet malts on the front end with a welcome hop punch in the finish. Awesome ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is deep amber with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is all hop... More earthy, herbal, and citrus. Taste is grassy, earthy, onion, with slight bit of pine. Mouthfeel is fairly high. Finish is a soft hop bitterness following by intense alcohol warmth. As the beer warms the alcohol finish becomes very noticeable and leaves a stinging sensation

On tap at The Beer Store in Southampton, PA. Lagunitas is just incredible. Always knows how to take pine, citrus, and malts and make something awesome. A little too much alcohol bite, but still very enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep, rich amber color, with a thick, foamy, rocky head that clings to the lip of the glass. The aroma is a bright, semi-sweet combination of citrus and pine that is bold but not overly assertive. The flavor is much more aggressive, though, with a potent, resinous pine forest hop character that is only mildly countered by a bready malt sweetness. The sticky, resinous, full mouthfeel becomes weighty after a while. Overall, this is a bold, hop-dominant IIPA/Strong Ale that is quite nice in a single glass but might be too much for me to enjoy multiple servings at once.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a good finger thick head. Sweet tropical fruits and pine dominate the aroma. Taste is nicely balanced; sweet caramel malt and plenty of hops with just a bit of alcohol. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very well balnced at nearly 10%. Another knockout from Lagunitas. Can’t wait to see everyone @ the Chicago laocation!!!
