Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Oily citric hops, moderate bitterness, a little generic fruity sweetness, and mild boozy notes. Pretty good. Arayaga2 (2197) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Clear gold, with a bit of white head. Tastes of sweet floral hops, and it’s bitter and alcoholic enough that it’s not cloying. This may be the last Heineken I ever have $2/12oz sawbuck (732) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2017
Aroma of fresh pine. Nice orange color with a thin off white head. Sweet caramel up front, quickly covered by piney bitterness and alcohol burn. Bitterness intensifies on the finish. Not much else going on. Slick mouth feel and a warm echo down the throt from the alcohol. coachgriffcscs (1) - - MAY 13, 2017 does not count
A quality double IPA....Flavor is on the sweet side but the boozy finish and slight bitterness detracts from the overall quality of this brew.

12 oz. bottle, shared by Scott. Pours clear yellow, with a small, off-white head. The nose is caramel, mellow pine and floral notes, and white bread. Sweet and sugary, with a smooth and assertive bitterness. Medium body, crisp and smooth, with a fairly clean finish. This is a solid, well made, and tasty IPA.

Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is caramelized marmalade, pine resin. Taste is a big malty marmalade hop bomb you expect from Lagunitas. A little on the sweet side but oh so chewy and marmalade-y. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 10, 2017
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of floral, bitter, and grapefruity hops, pale and sweet malts, hints of EtOH, and some dough. Flavor the same. Thicker texture. This beer would have been really sweet about 10 years ago, but seriously, get with the times - no one wants this style anymore. gripweed57 (2452) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Brassy gold color topped by a small bubbly white head. Toasted malt and fruity hops in nose. A bit like mango chutney. First sip is tropical fruit. Mango, guava, apple and persimmon. Then the alcohol takes over. Big and boozy. Warming in the chest stays long. Finish has tropical fruit hops and chewy caramel. Make no mistake, this is a big beer. It could be a barleywine if not for the huge hop bill. Long dry bitter aftertaste. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Gold pour with white head. Aroma is oranges and fruitiness. Flavor is sweet malt start with the same orange zest and some tropical fruit. Medium body with a solid bitter finish. I attribute the dry finish to the abv warmth. Solid all round. mrjez (620) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle from Sake no Taniguchi. Pours a bright orange-gold, not much head, lacing. Aroma evokes orange fruits: orange, mango, apricot, tangerine, in a sweet marmalade way. Nice strong flavour of said fruit, definite booze but it melds in like a jammy wine or liqueur. Full body, comes boozy sweet and tongue-coatingly syrupy, has a rising bitter middle and rides out fairly dry with some lingering pine and warmth. Well put together.
