Lompoc C-Note
This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a slight hazy burnt orange to off sort of brown color. Slim fingerís white foamy head starts and dissipates at a nice pace. Messy lace occurs as the head dissipates. The smell starts off with a sly citrus hoppiness. Subtle pine notes glide into a sweet malt base. Somewhat dry, with a sticky hoppiness coming in. The flavor takes in all of the previously mentioned flavors sliding together sweetly. Bitterness shows a sly "oomph" slyly and riding on into the finish (kinda sticky). On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Fair sessionability to it. Sly carbonation. Overall, very nicely done AIPA, I could see myself coming back to this.

Lompoc Pamplemousse Citrus IPA
This was poured into an English pint glass. The appearance was a glossy burnt orange color with a slim fingerís worth of white foamy head that dissipates to a thin cap of a head. Moderate trickling lacing. The smell takes a sweet lemon pulp and blends with a moderate burst of grapefruit pulp. Nice level of bitterness for the most part. Adequate pulpy sweetness. The flavor takes all of the previously mentioned aromas to round out in a bittersweet pulpy sort of way. Juiciness is somewhat there. Delicate malt underneath. Dry poignant grapefruity aftertaste and sly sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Nice balanced harshness hits all around. Overall, really good AIPA that I would have again.

Lompoc Proletariat Red
This was a hoppy red that hit upfront on the taste buds and really didn't finish to smooth. It kept its bitterness all the way through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lompoc Pamplemousse Citrus IPA
Nice blend of different citrusy hops and distinct grapefruit. Perhaps a touch past itís prime at nearly 12 weeks old. Moderate bitterness and malty backbone. Not a stand out.

Bottle from Queens Plaza Beer & Wine 180316. First beer from this brewery and hopefully wonít be the last. Havenít seen Locpoc here in Australia before. This beer is all about the malt and it is very malt heavy. Looks good and tastes good as well.

Lompoc Pamplemousse Citrus IPA
From a 650ml bottle on 8/3/2016. Pours a darkish golden with a biggih white head. Has a light, spritzy citrus aroma. In the mouth, thereís light caramel malt, lots of sharp lemon, and a touch of grapefruit. The hops are pretty firm, with a bit of a salty note at the back. Full bodied with average carbonation. A decent IPA, but could be a bit better balanced for mine.

Lompoc C-Note
Shared growler. Pours a deep coppery-amber, nice aromas of fruitiness and pine, a touch a malt sweetness. The malt is more pronounced in the flavour, giving this a decent body, a little spicy kick, biscuity mixed with dank pine. Very enjoyable.

Lompoc Cimmerian - Port Barrel
Port Barrel Aged Cimmerian 8% Pint at Imazato. A cola black with ruby accents and a cherry coke, mild oak and malt aroma. Medium bodied. The flavor is sweet port, vanilla, mild oak and smooth with a bit of heat. This was very drinkable and as it warmed up became more flavorful but retained a wonderful balance.

Lompoc Big Bang Red - Port Barrel Aged
On tap at Craft Cafe Imazato, Osaka, as Port Barrel-Aged Cimmerian. L: a deep red mahogany, quite clear, almost no head. S: booze straight off the top, port red wine, a hoppy note. T: a straight up vinious flavour, with a bit of fizz, like a cheap cask Lambrusco. Unfortunately not many notes of beer, I wouldíve liked some malt to back this more. F: feels more wine than beer, sweet port warmth, a slightly bitter backing. O: I was lead to believe this would go down like a barley wine, but it really lacked any body or character to match that style. A sharp port alcohol note was the main thing it had going for it.

Lompoc Pamplemousse Citrus IPA
Great beer. I expected more grapefruit but was very satisfied with the citrus presented. This beer is citrus forward, but gives wayto a mellow finish. Classic NE IPA refreshment. This is my first Lompoc and I will enjoy another soon.

Draft at uber. Never really thought much of lompoc, but Luttonm and others tell me Iím missing out, so hereís another go. 2014. Medium amber pour, some head. Aroma is classic toffee/plum/dark fruit and oxidation barleywine. Tastes nice - moderate sweetness, dry herbal somewhat oxidized finished. Full body. Slick texture. Overall: my deScriptions arenít exactly glowing with praise, but this is solid -- definitely better than average.

Lompoc Pamplemousse Citrus IPA
Bottle from New Seasons. A: Cloudy orange with a thin bubbly white head. Lacing. N: Ruby grapefruit, lemon juice, and tart oranges. Pine, earth, and cracker underneath. More citrus elements. T: Tart, bitter, and very lightly crackery. M: Medium-light, dry body, no alcohol presence, crisp carbonation. O: Decent IPA. I like the idea, but the execution suffers a bit because the grapefruit juice doesnít add another layer of complexity. Perhaps itís the hop bill used or they needed more dry-hopping, but it comes off as just another IPA.

Cola brown/black with a tan head. Aroma is brown and toasty but will emerge as it warms. Taste is tootsie roll sweet and nutty which carries into the finish. Not much to it, but it is easy to drink and neither cloying or alcoholic for such a big beer. $5.5/22 oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lompoc Saison díEvolution
Bottle:   Darker straw in color, hazy, large frothy off-white head, clumpy lacing.   Peppery nose right up front.   Bright, but not really barnish or floral.   It comes across as a bit shrubby with peppercorns.   Maybe a little mountain mustiness, but its not your traditional barnish/floral type Saison.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a strong peppercorn (pink perhaps) and mountain shrub background.   An odd Saison, and not very traditional.

Lompoc Monster Mash Porter
Bomber 8% from Capital Market. Very dark brown on the pour. Almost black in my goblet. Looked a little thin while pouring. Straightforward roasted malty nose with a little coffee and not much in the way of sweetness. Roasted malty flavor up front with a nice coffee finish. Fairly sweet with a good deal of milk sugar flavor. A bit of a hop kick as well. Pretty solid.
