3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber brown, with a nice head and some lacing. Nicely carbonated, and quite bitter in a good way. Touch of dryness and alcohol in the aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bottle. Surprisingly delicious offering, for sure my highest rated by Lagunitas. Subtle vanilla aroma, dark golden and cloudy. Creamy texture, just a bit tart.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours deep copper Burgundy. Big pillowy vanilla creme head. Aroma is West coast hops, pine, resin, really prominent very ripe tangerine, peach, mango. Little bit of a burnt sugar sort of deal, malt I guess you’d call it caramel? There’s a definite sugary malty sweetness. Flavor is really nice. Hoppy pine up front, orange, peach, mango, again, but more sugar residual sweetness. Not too malty, just sugary and again, not too much balanced out well by the hops. Solidly bitter finish. A little boozy. It’s Lagunitas, I’m gonna go ahead and guess this guy is like mid 8s percentage wise. Oh wow, it’s 9.8, I see that but it’s not overly boozy. It hides it well. Jesus Lagunitas makes a good product.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the bottle of a six pack, clear copper with white head, this is strong, bitter, hoppy boozy, and malty sweet beer. The high alcohol is my favorite thing about it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours amber gold with off white head. Nose of spruce, nectarine, candied lemon, syrupy sugar and breadiness. Flavor is some dense syrupy honeylike malt with an assertive juicy apricot, tangerine and floral hop bite typical of any ASA. Slick, syrupy, smooth & silky mouthfeel. Pretty nice!

Clear copper colored pour, big off white head that didn’t 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!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a dark amber with a thick white foamy head. Light pine and sweet citrus aroma. Full mouth flavor. Smooth sweet malts with a little hop bitterness. Nice smooth finish. Not as bitter as advertised which is good. Nice, refreshing, semi=sweet and smooth finish. Very enjoyable. Not harsh or bitter, but full flavored. Good but not great.
