fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle. Aroma big tropical fruits and lightly spicy hop character, semi-sweet, biscuit malt as well. Flavor again a showcase of the hops, largely the tropical fruit variety. Somewhat resinous, somewhat juicy as far as hop character goes, sort of in between. A tongue-coating, long-lasting bitter finish. Very good.

Nice, exotic fruity, hop juicy double IPA with a very light malt background. The hops are bright and refreshing without ever giving you a sore throat. Very much a hop oriented beer but it still manage to come across as very balanced. Good stuff.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2009
(bottle - 22 oz) Amber color with a thick off-white head. Aroma is lots pine resin, citrus, grapefruit, and some sticky hops and tropical fruit juice. Flavor is incredibly sweet and tropical at the beginning that gives way to a very floral and juicy hop middle. Flavors of mango, pineapple, and grapefruit blend well with the hops and leave a lively and bitter finish on the tongue.

notalush (5802) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Im normally underwhelmed by the prospect of trying yet another IPA from Lagunitas, but given the great ratings, I figured Id give it a whirl - pours a clear light orange, with a fairly sticky lace - a lot of resinous, earthy hop character in the nose, with a potent mix of pineapple, mango, and apricot sweetness - the flavor is of medium sweet tropical fruits, followed by copious amounts of earthy hops, finished off by some lingering honey and herbal qualities - a little too sweet on the back - its quite good, not great, but its quite an argument for the use of extracts.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle from New Beer. Golden in color with some orange highlights, medium off white head. Aroma of fresh sticky hops- orange, mango, grapefruit, fresh and resinous. Taste is full of fresh, resinous hops, alot of tropical fruit, mild pine, and some mild malty sweetness in the back. A nice IIPA that gives me a new perspective on hop extracts.....

JaBier (7424) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2009
22oz bottle. Cloudy orange copper color with a medium off-white head. Hoppy aroma with orange and grapefruit notes and a malt balance. Flavor is incredibly citrusy with a touch of malty sweetness for balance. A far cry from Maximus and thats a good thing.

jrmac (335) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Beer poured a golden amber color with thick white foam. Smells of pine cones, citrus, and other fruit. Taste is surprisingly smooth for a beer with this level of bitterness. Still a little thinner then I was expecting.

daknole (10925) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Bottle from the ever generous stefanje. Sparkling clear gold pour with a nice white head. Aroma is full of mango, grapefruit and some honey orange notes. Flavor is wonderful. Malty, hoppy, and fucking delicious. Hops are present but the malt is present and wonderful...great beer.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2009
[Bottle] Pours a crystal clear amber with a finger of beige head. Aroma is purely hops with only a touch of malts. Lots of grapefruit and a bit of dank pine and other resins. Flavor is nice and rich, full of hops and just enough malt backbone so that its not too sweet. Remarkably dry finish. Great buy at $5 per bomber.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2009
22oz. Bomber. Honey orange color with minimal foam and lacing. Aroma is assertive and floral with orange blossoms, grapefruit and a bit of pine. Flavor is impressively hoppy, but not overly bitter. Malt kicks in towards the end with the crystal malts contributing a sweet caramel flavor. Body is relatively light and almost oily for the style with a somewhat higher than average carbonation. Citrusy tasting hops really shine from the beginning to the end. Goes out with a quick, dry bitterness. Get some if you can.
