Very malty, but bitey. Strongly carbonated. This one i could drink all day. Lots of caramel balanced with a great hopiness. A great marriage of an IPA and a brown. Delicious and drinkable.

A reddish-brown beer with a small head. The aroma is very citrusy and piney. I like how it does not look like it would smell the way it does, nice hoppy aroma. The taste is a nice citrusy hop taste with some pine with a moderate bitterness.

22 oz. bottle from Mac’s on West Peachtree. Fluffy head is starting to break-away. Nice translucent brown body. This fucker is reminding me of Arrogant Bastard i.e. this is a great looking beer. Nice pungent and resinous grapefruit/citrus hop aroma. Sharp pine aroma cuts through the citrus; damn, this thing fresh, smell amazing. It’s as if I am opening a pouch of hops purchased for home-brewing purposes. The hops dominate, without much of a malt presence. I am dissatisfied with the aroma whatsoever. Excellent flavor. I thought the hop presence was going to be overpowering, but it is actually quite mellow. You’re still able to taste the resinous pine and grapefruit citrus hop flavors, but it is also balanced out by a rather subtle sweet malt flavor, that doesn’t get in the way. In fact, I am not tasting much of anything other than the hop flavor. I do get some residual sweet flavors from the malts, but again, this beer is centered on the hops.

BuckeyeBoy (2878) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 25, 2010
On tap at Brewforia Boise. Pours out a amberish topped with a nice head. Aroma was of pine resin and caramell sweetness. Taste was a nice pine needle and lots of caramell malts to help round it out. This was a tasty one. How

22oz. Pours a clear amber, thick yellowish beige head. Very good lace. Very nice aroma of fresh hops (tropical notes), brown sugar, spices, rye malt, tamarind. Taste is like a spicy brown IPA. Some sweaty character, resiny hops, strawberry icing. Very weird but fun!

I was sitting in this bar, and the owner came up to me and told me to get out because they wanted to start happy hour...Pours a light rust brown .. medium head, but great lacing .. good dose of hops, resiny bark, burnt caramel, pinecone drippings .. . an enjoyable and at the price, a great buy- but a tad one dimensional ... why you hit him? hey, no one hit, he just fell down ..

Bomber courtesy of mitchgt - from New Leaf. Dark cola colored pour with a ruby tint. Medium sturdy light tan head. Nice citrus hop, floral and molasses in the aroma - an earthy vibe. Taste is earthy also with toasted malts, pine, caramel and peppery spice. Finishes up a subtle burnt citrusy bitter with a spike of carbonation. Nice texture overall - creamy medium with sharp carbonation. Interesting stuff.

22. Pours a crystal clear and very dark rubied amber. Enormous fluffy tan head throwing fish eyes, suds, and acres of stringy lace all over the place. Big, striking ASA more than ready for its closeup, Mr DeMille. Gorgeous. Now, how many times have my Lagunitas rates said how much better these things smell and taste when they’re fresh? Well, make it one more after this one here. This one smells like a fresh and fruity combination of very low-acidity grapefruit, totally bright and refreshing, and some super sticky icky purply crystallized dank. Just sends shivers of eyebrow-wiggling pleasure right up your nose and everywhere else it goes when it goes. Delectable. Some caramel under there just to remind you that it’s a beer you’re smelling. Creamy medium body, could use a little more bubble, really. Soft carb, goes almost watery in spots. Toasty caramel and brown bread toast, topped off with heaping helpings of sparkling fresh perfect grapefruit and bong loads. Yum yum. Mild caramel and grapefruit finish. This sums up the Lagunitas ethos in a perfect stripped-down application--rich and hoppy bold west coast american ale, all about the sensualist pleasures of the ingredients ratcheted way up but kept as close as possible to being in some kind of balance. Very fun to drink. No hint of the booze: trouble ahead.

Bottle. Pours with a clear amber brown body and a small, tan head. Aroma of amarillo hops, tropical fruit mostly, pine (simcoe?), some caramel, husky, chocolate. Flavor is roasty, very nutty, hazlenut, fruit esters, and a bit of the hops, but not that much. IBU bitterness perception is somewhat low or hidden. A bit of crystal sweetness. Lively bubbles, dry and well attenuated finish.
