snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2009
On tap at Naked City. Pours clear amber with a nice head and tons of lace. Grapefruit/pine aroma with some biscuity malts in the taste. Finish is nice and bitter- too bad I had this one after Union Jack rather than before.

bhensonb (15191) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2017
Bottle from the TJ’s in Davis, CA. Pours orangey gold with a white head. Aroma of pale stone fruits. Med body or so. Flavor is fruit, a little malty and something light orange follows. Not entirely dry, but nicely bitter. Quite pleasing.

Clean dark gold color with a fluffy, blanketing head of thick white foam. Complex aromas and flavors that come off as Captain Crunchberries. A touch of tropical fruit and sweet citrus dancing all around all leading to a moderately dry pine sap finish.

oobawa (1401) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 10, 2017
Big hoppy, wheaty boogeyman, combining the sweet banana and booze base of an imperial hefeweizen with Lagunitas orange hop madness. Very, very fruity on the back end, orange marmalade meshing with slight hints of dank and pine. Perfect texture, effervescent but not overly so, with the alcohol hidden. Nose is no great shakes, but damned if it isn’t a pretty pint, brigt straw gold with ample head and lace. Solid.

Pours a light yellow, aroma is fresh light citrus and stone fruit. Very soft for 8.5%. Lovely

I’m not sure whats happened but I used to love this beer and it hasn’t seemed the same the last few times I’ve had it, maybe they’ve changed it. It’s still ok but not great.

MrJohnBasedow (3) - Long Beach, USA - SEP 28, 2016 does not count
Great IPA. Fairly widely available. Good color and great balance. Not too fruity, bitter, or sweet. Another winner from Lagunitas

RNDave (20) - Fillmore, California, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Decent American ale. Not too fruity. Hoppy yet smooth and robust. Color is very golden and clear. Taste isn’t remarkable or bland. Doesn’t linger on the palate. Overall quality ale.

3.7
OminouSC2 (670) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2016
Amber color. Citrus aromas, wheat and bread. Taste is also heavy citrus, oranges and grapefruit, sweet malt base and hoppy finish. Pretty good!

4.1
jinroh (1595) - ESTONIA - JUL 2, 2016
Looks nice golden, clear and decent foam - leaving beautiful lacings. Aroma is mainly dominated with hops, there is fresh cut grass and also some pine character - that is balanced with bread biscuit grain dust. Taste has its fair share of sweetness but hops are strong as well and are balancing this quite nicely. It has some unusual feel to the body, somewhat fuller and grainier than all-malt beer, wheat is making wonders and contributing to the uniqueness here. Goes down probably faster than it should.

3.4
Tide (3895) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Draught at Hilpeä Hauki. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, hops, resin, peach and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, malts, caramel, hops, peach and grass. Very nice brew.
