Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2014
On tap at the Pourhouse. Aroma of dank weed, stinky pine, and POTENT grapefruit peel. Dank nuggets of stoner hop. Pours deep amber with a medium sticky head. Taste is dark citrus, dank pine resin, sticky honey, and dank weeds. Delicious, sticky, bold, and comfortable. This is everything Lagunita’s does well. I wish I could find some scientific way to keep this fresh all year.

jbruner (2804) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma is dank west coast hops, citrus and pine explosion. Taste follows with a mild sweet back end and a lasting bitterness, no sign of the booze. Amazing IPA from a great brewer of the style.

onceblind (5141) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Clear darkish gold under a foamy white head. The aroma has tons of hoppy melon and pine resins, some dank orange and grapefruit zest and some hopped caramel. Very lovely nose. Smooth flavor with a big hop ride with ample but bitter enough for a serious hop head. Thankfully not acidic, but floral with sweet undertones, but not enough to downplay the lovely grapefruit and grassy notes. There’s a bit of lemongrass as well, and more floral resins with a leafy-hoppy sweet caramel undertone that’s very sturdy and full. Just a wonderful DIPA with depth and balance with a big sticky melon hop bitterness.

douglas88 (6787) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 20, 2014
On tap at ABV. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A nice big fruity and grassy nose. Caramel, big pine, some bitterness, grass, citrus. a big malty balance. Quite mellow, deceptively strong. Very good.

swoopjones (6627) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2014
draft at Blue Monk. fuller bodied orange copper pour. Big dankness, sticky resiny hops/bitterness. Huge mouthfeel, boozy, agressive but not a throat burner. best lagunitas beer to date

SlovakSniper (3621) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Une robe ambrée sur laquelle flotte un mince col de mousse. Au nez, de puissants parfums fruités (américains et néo-zélandais) qui font oublier la présence des céréales maltées. Au goût, un alcool poivré qui détonne dans cette soupe d’agrumes, de mangues, de conifères, de gazon, de malts roux et de seigle. En bouche, une double qui flirte avec le vin d’orge. Un gros corps tout de même bien accessible. En finale, des notes résineuses et fruitées chaudes et très accaparantes. Un nez superbe mais déjà vu. Des saveurs qui ralentissent la buvabilité. Bien content tout de même d’être tombé sur ce Waldo. En fût au Tap42 de Fort Lauderdale.

Bacterial (1918) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2014
Draft at Stub & Herbs. Nice dark amber pour with a slight white head. Big hoppy, dank nose. Strong malt backbone, tons of hops and a strong bitter finish. Tastes like Lagunitas, and that is a good thing.

On tap at capitol beer and taproom. Pours copper with white head. Big hop aroma with a fruity hop bitterness. Great beer
