3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear deep golden color with a large yeasty off white head. Nose is tennis ball fuzz, vinyl, canned pears. Taste is bitter, grassy, and slightly boozy with no real recognizable flavors other than banana bread and citrus. Creamy well carbonated mouthfeel. Odd and over hopped.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear deep golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a fresh grapefruity hoppy nose with a light biscuity malty sweetness and a hint of light fruity esters. Starts with decent fullness and light carbonation with a toasty pale malty sweetness well-balanced with a juicy hop resin bitterness before a citrusy bittersweet finish. Could use a little more body and sweetness, but it’s still a very drinkable and tasty Belgian-styled IPA.

650ml. Pours slightly hazy golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is very fresh citric hops, a touch piney with a noticeable belgian yeast sweetness. Flavor starts sweet and slightly candyish, the yeast definitely playing a role in the balance with the strong american hops. Finishes bitter, a bit grainy and some definite booze followed by a piney bitterness lingering. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Nice beer

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
pours a very pretty gold color, but the taste is something closer to perfume. It may just be my palate but it was so hopped that it tasted more like a flower then a beer and lingered. My wife also tried the beer and gave a face as if she was just offered bud light.

Bottle. Pours golden with a big white head. Flavors of perfume, citrus, hops. Definitely not a wild, it’s a Belgian IPA.

draft at cap ale west end. deep gold color with thin off-white head. subdued fruitiness on the nose under a bready, yeasty sweetness. hops are there but not on top. taste is sweeter than expected. sweetness lingers into finish before hops come out a bit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Whole Foods Los Altos. Pours a brilliant clear golden color with a one-finger-plus white head and great thick lacing. The aroma is big-time west coast hops, rather typical of Lagunitas’ profile, with big citrus and a little floral/herbal note in there. The flavor has a sweet pale malt base, a little caramel thrown in, Belgian yeast, and a great hop profile of orange, grapefruit, floral, herbal, and resinous qualities. Well-integrated. Medium-bodied with an average level of carbonation and hop resins attacking the palate. A great beer overall, and an easy and enjoyable summer quaffer for sure.
