3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with a small white head. Fruity aroma of citrus hops with caramel and tea notes. Sweet caramel flavour with fruity hops, a touch of alcohol and a good bitter finish. This is pure classic Lagunitas, and a bit lower on the complexishness than I might have expected.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.
Clear golden colour. Firm, frothy, staying, white head. Aroma has good peachy hops, light grapefruit and apricot, some resin, light fruity esters and mild doughy malts. Medium carbonation, light oily and fat mouthfeel with mild dryness. Flavour has good sweetness, kinda doughy malts, light estery, pineapple, green apple. Light vinious, good bitterness. Even it is the usual Lagunitas extract hops bitterness, it still packs a good punch. This is a fine IPA/Belgian experiment overall.
