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

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of citrusy hops and caramel. The taste is very balanced between hops and malt. Not bitter or sweet but balanced.

Deep clear copper color with white head. Minor lacing. Aroma is hoppy with some malt. Flavor is balanced and very enjoyable. The hops really bring this beer to life. I would drink this again.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I love lagunatis! What a crazy name for a beer. Tastes like a double ESB. Dark tan, almost caramel colored. Thick frothy head. Earthy, spicey aroma. Bitter and hoppy, but balanced with a heavy caramel body. Another winner at a great price!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to rustychiles for grabbing me one of these. Pours a dark chestnut brown with next to no carbonation. A straight pour down the center results in no greater than 1/4 finger of head. Pretty dismal for a beer that I know is damn hoppy. Aroma is of dank citrusy/piney American hops and a teeny bit of crystal malt. Taste is pure dank heavy high alpha acid American hops backed by the residual sweetness of a solid amber ale with plenty of crystal malt thrown in. Quite quite tasty, and I’m no hop head. This was pretty reminiscent of Oskar Blues Gordon for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very nice clear, copper color. It has very nice lacing, but minimal head retention. Smells hoppy, and a bit of caramel malt. Tastes very bitter and hoppy. My only criticism is that it finishes a bit too sweet. That being said, an excellent drink!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blood-red pour with a thick one-finger head. Huge malty aroma. Very sweet smelling, with notes of brown sugar, plums, raisins, and hearty breads, along with bountiful citrus and resiny hops. Taste is also sweet up front. Dark fruits, caramel, and toffee start the sensation, but there’s a wicked hop bite at the finish. Citrusy with a little touch of pine. Mouthfeel is full and robust. Another home run from Lagunitas.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a warm honey color with about a half inch off-white head that quickly disappeared leaving no lace. Great aroma - this is what really sold me on this beer, biggest note in the scent is straight sour cherries - a great sweet subtle bitterness to play off the hops and the bite in the taste. Great crisp mouthfeel and enjoyable from start to finish. Very refreshing, a lot going on in the appeal of this beer.

Great looking orange pour with a lacey head. Big aroma of resiny hops and a bit of citrus. The finish is pretty hot and alcoholic, but a nice pretty dry finish

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark copper with a medium white head. Somewhat sweet resiny hop aroma is the overwhelming characteristic with some citrus as well. Flavor is bittersweet caramel and resin hops. Yummy as hell with a nice bite. Will drink more. Smells good. Big.
