My buddy Tyler and I threw down on a case of these bad boys. Very bitter and hoppy strong ale. Dark mahogany, medium body, instantly diminishing head. Piney and citrus notes are present, as well as alcohol. A realy good beer.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Light amber hue, murky clarity with mostly lasting fizzy off-white head. Good lacing. Strong citrus, floral, booze, light fruit aromas. Heavy bitter citrus and floral tastes up front with a heavy booze and citrus finish. Watery texture on the palate with a light-medium body. Solid beer.

Bottle: this is a sweet smelling and tasting bitter brew. It's a bit too thick and sweet but overall a nice strong ale.

Drank from bottle. Nose is citrus, hops, and resin. Taste has a heavy orange presence a little sweet on the tongue with a dry and mildly bitter finish that doesn’t linger. Amazing beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Pours dark amber with a thick white head. Aroma is hoppy, mostly citrus rind and grapefruit, but there’s some nice molasses sweetness that balances. Flavor grassy, bready, sweet then punches you in the mouth with great bitterness. Another good beer from Lagunitas.

This years is not as bitter as last years. You still have the spicy herbal hop notes but is overshadowed by the barley malt sweetness. Almost syrupy on mouthfeel. Alcohol finishes nicely, not in an offensive way. This is worthy.

the first lagunitas i wasn’t terribly impressed by. pours reddish with mild off-white head. nose is grapefruit and mild floral. taste is like every other hopped-up IPA with not as high an IBU. Good, but not great.

Gotta love the deep ruby color. Thick mouthfeel finishes fairly smooth, with the alcohol coming in at the end. A bit too much sweetness for my taste, but the flavor evens out overall.
