Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Bomber from redlight redlight. Pours a dark amber with a generous off-white head and nice lacing. Great combination of a citrusy, piny hop aroma and warm bready malt aroma in the nose. Excellently balanced. Switches back and forth from mildly sweet and deliciously bitter as it swirls around the mouth. Simultaneously a little creamy yet very crisp in the finish. Quite nice.

BillKismet (3502) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Just the thing for an economic downturn. This special brew does not dissapoint. Brassy bodied with a fluffy beige head and emanating a refreshing floral hop aroma with a twinge of pine and citrus and an underlying caramel malt backbone. Full-bodied and surprisingly malty with excellent complexity. Flush with floral hops and also a moderate portion of fruitiness and caramel. An exceptional American Strong Ale.

Bottle.
Friggin’ Liberal hippie beer makers... suck on it, losers. Anyhoo... Pours a rich, deep mahogany with a thick, cloud-like head of off-white and a strong aroma of syrupy hops, orange pulp, sweet rose, and buttery flowers. Flavor is much more restrained than the aroma, with notes of buttery grapefruit, sour strawberry, gooey orange, and subdued pine. Average mouthfeel. A very enjoyable brew.

Rusty (1543) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Pours a nice deep brown with 2 fingers of tan head. Aroma is hops, caramel, malt, chocolate, spices. Flavor is roast, chocolate, caramel, a good dose of hops, some floral notes and spices. Kind of a strange brew.

944play (372) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 18, 2010
22oz from 7-11 in weizen glass. Hazy brown with medium off-white head. Gentle sweet floral, geranium, and straw notes. Cucumber, ginseng and cola flavors. Big body; clean, bitter finish.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle @ redlight redlight. Piney hoppy nose with sweet caramel malts and hints of nuts. Pours a reddish brown with a very thin white head. Hoppy brown ale, sweet pine with citrus and caramel biscuity malts and hints of molasses in the background. Great hoppy brown ale.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle. Poured dark brown with medium white head. Much lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, with some pine and citrus. Malty flavour, has some hoppy character, but not like a pale or IPA. Hop finish, Whisky Tango Foxtrot? It’s Foxtrot Golf Bravo.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle. @ $4.49 what’s not to like? Pours a clear rusty color with a medium sticky foamy head. Big citrus hop aroma, light pine, and nice robust malt character that integrates well, super fresh which is always a plus. Flavor is lots of citrus and pine at first, good amount of bite, plenty of sweetness from the robust malts, medium/strong bitterness lags just behind, actually its super bitter but very sweet as well, somewhat christmasy, tree-like, bit of chocolate and spice either from the hops or other. Long sticky resiny bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, slightly sticky with corse big fluffy carbonation. I’m finding myself drinking the hell out of this... so I’ll bump it 1.

22 oz. bomber from PCC. Certainly a lot of malt in this beer. Aftertaste lingers of Cascade-type hops, meaning there must have been a lot to muscle through this malt bomb. Flavors start to mingle together a little more as the beer gets warmer (or maybe that’s just me getting warmer!) Another success for Lagunitas.

HonkeyBra (3730) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Dark pour: looks sort of brownish with tan whispy head. Aroma of strong citrusy hops, light roast. Pretty strong hop flavor. I get some of the roasty, robust notes beneath the strong orange sherbet hops. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side but thats true for most Lagunitas brews. Lingering hops and an orange rind finish. For the price point, you can’t go wrong when looking for your hop fix with these lagunitas brews.
