4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottom Line, THANK YOU Lagunitas!!!
Anyone who gives this beer lower than a ’4’ rating either ’a’ doesn’t like beer...or, ’b’ doesn’t like ipas...therefore, both should NOT rate beer in the first place (IMHO)...sorry for the rant!!!
For some reason before I really rated this beer (maybe I did on other BA sites?!)...anyway, I gave this just an "OK" rating...I’ve re-visited since my move to Austin TX and...HOLY [email protected]
!!!....this is one of the closest beers that has come to ’perfect’ (as my favorite style is IPA
)...this beer is .just down right fantastic!...I definitely ’think’ this beer gives stone and dog fish-head (which I’m not all that crazy about) a run for their money!!!...Why won’t anyone give ’ANY’ beer a ’5’ ??!!!!!....are we waiting for....????!!!...(I don’t want to discuss religion, but seriously!!)...Chasin’ Cheers :~)
Tap at Rattle N Hum, New York, 20th November 17. Pours clear, amber. Aroma is malt, bitter citrus. Taste is malt, sweet and then bitter, booze, unusual after taste. Good. jinroh (2277) - ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2017
Pours clear orange-amber, not too carbonated nor foamy. Nose is full on hoppy, nicely balanced against that caramel sweet - but grassy hopped and resiny - body. Taste reveals more of that heavier and hoppier character, something that drinks dangerously easy although some alcohol is there and it even warms you a bit. Beer that appeals to me as a session beer - although by all accounts, it should not be that. Loving this. pappabear (16) - Granbury, Texas, USA - OCT 30, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2017 Very strong Hops aroma that is pleasantly nice. Pours Crystal Clear Golden with a slight orange tint. Has 1 fat finger of head that dissipates in about a minute with good lacing. Taste is very smooth and drinkable with (wait for it) lots of hops. Piney, mild citrus, slight sweet caramel hints with a nice bitter finish. Did I mention the Hops? Another great beer by Lagunitas. bd94840 (1) - - OCT 25, 2017 does not count
Nice overall body, aroma, flavor. I’d definitely purchase again. ABV 8.0%. Another fine product from the people at Lagunitas.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Btl pours a bronze color with a big off white head that lingers leaving lots of lace on glass. Aromas of perfume,pine sap, flowers ,citrus fruit, with a hint of dankness.Tastes sweet caramel,honey, tangerines, oranges, grapefruit and lemon. Medium body, perfect carbonation, smooth, silky mouth feel and a mellow bitter somewhat dry and warm finish. An imperial that drinks like a pale. I could crush a few of these. Simply amazing!

Bomber pours a clear golden orange with a two finger eggshell head that takes a while to dissipate and leaves great lacing. Aroma is citrus and malt. Taste is a heavy hop sweet citrus grapefruit with just enough malt to counter the medium bitterness. Works pretty well overall but seems just a hair much of... well... everything.

Pours very clear blonde, small white head. Smell is rich; creamy, tad sweet-perception by the fruityness. Taste is full, pine, bitter, aromatically hopped.. pine in the afrtertaste. Nice
