3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at OíBriens. Just have to say this is definitely one of the coolest bottles iíve 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 iím duly impressed with their form of protest to their shutdown last year!

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. Canít wait to see everyone @ the Chicago laocation!!!

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.

Very Complex. Rich, full bodied flavor - lots of hops but not bitter - an earlier comment said that this had an aroma of BBQ sauce - I would go a step further and say it actually has a slight TASTE of BBQ sauce. In a good way. I think. Definitely an earthy caramel flavor to balanced the hops. My original reaction was that I would not want more than one of these at once, but this beer has so much going on that a second bottle may be required. .

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 355ml, from Systembolaget. Clear copper with a white head. Grassy, citrus, pine, grapefruit, some raisin, caramel. More general fruit characteristics and maltiness when it warms up. Medium body, round, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Some warmness, a bit of alcohol in the nose, but not in the mouth. Nice, would buy again.

White head with hoppy aroma. smells like itís gonna be hoppy. yup. it is. oh. donít stop.yes. love it. Itís got some bitter-sour feel to it. Looks like ale. Tastes like white-ale. Tang and herbs. I know, i know, sounds contradictory but it screams cirtus with herby tint. Itís damn good. drink it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper colored pour, big off white head that didnít hang around to long but left some clinging lacing. Aroma is a nice piney citrus mix. Taste is slightly bitter upfront with a malty backbone. Another really nice beer from Lagunitas!

4/9/15. Bottle purchased July, 2013. Same rating I originally gave it but definitely a different beer. Still had a big sticky head and cooper color. Nose a bit of a funky edge. Mouth has got big and round. A little less boozy with less of a bite. However still real big with lots of dark smoky notes coming through. Lots of fun

Good. I had a very small tasting from a friend. It was the last bottle so I couldn't get a good eval. It's definitely worth trying again.
