look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle, purchased locally ($9.99/6). Bottle marked Day 325, 11/21/11, 43 days ago. Poured into tulip glass.

A: Slightly cloudy gold/amber. 1"+ fluffy, ivory head that leaves scattered lacing; steady effervescence.

S: Lemon and grapefruit, warm bread; floral.

T: Lemon & banana, slightly tangy/sour; caramel; growing piney bitterness; scant alcohol.

M: Crisp, with medium body and medium/high carbonation; creamy, but a bit too prickly to be smooth; slightly dry finish; low warming.

O: Fresh and delicious -- fruit/hop forward; one of my favorites from Lagunitas.

App- Pours a golden amber color, with a 1/4 inch off-white head.
Lacing is moderate through the glass.

Smell- citrusy hops and some bready/malty tones

Taste- follows the aroma, citrusy with some sweetness from the malt coming through in the middle, and a bready taste at the end.

Mouthfeel is thick, a bit chewy, but not outside of the style.

Drinkability- This is a drink that is very solid in all aspects, not too heavy to be difficult to drink, and very balanced.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Golden orange body with a massive, coarse, sticky, and persistent off-white head. Thin, fine-beaded lacing adorns the glass walls; the carbonation is rather slight.

Aroma: A substantial punch of citrus and pine hops combine with a strong and sweet bread malt presence. Sweet, slightly vinous alcohol is notable as well.

Taste: Opens with rather sweet malt, soon followed by a substantial hop presence, the hops dominate throughout the taste with grapefruit rind and pine tar flavors, although the malt remains as a sweet, almost honey-like undercurrent throughout the taste. Finishes with a long, drawn-out bitterness, primarily herbal and medicinal. The high alcoholic content is gracefully concealed.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very well-done. Considering the high alcohol and hop content, it is very drinkable.

Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a standard Pilsener glass.

Drank in late December out of a snifter.

A- nice amber color with thick head

S- very nice aromas similar to those of an IPA. Citrusy but with more malt aromas to keep it balanced.

T- mild mango and apricot flavors with a bitter/sweet after taste.

M- mild carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel.

O- every time I have this beer I appreciate it more. Although this is not an ipa it has a lot of the characteristics of a ipa. It has great drinkability and whenever I see in stock where I work I buy it.
