Love Lagunitas so really looking forward to trying this bomber. Pours a nice golden color, hop aroma just exudes from the glass... never had such a pungent beer and I love it! Taste is medium to heavy bodied, nice mouthfeel and well balanced. For the ABV its surprisingly VERY smooth, lots of hop character too. This does taste similar to a lot of other Lagunitas offering mind you, but I happen to love how their beers taste. Nice clean finish, wayyyy too easy to drink. One of the better beers I've had in a while, highly recommended. (536 characters)

Sharp and funky golden ale.

Attractive light amber in the tulip glass. Head fades, though creamy carbonation adds to the mouthfeel. Interesting fragrance of lilies and hot fruitbread. Very tart with intense fruity flavors. Quite hoppy, which pushes some of the Belgian character into the background. Long bitter aftertaste (72 IBU). Citrus, mango, pineapple. Hot like candied ginger. Very alcoholic tasting.

Not to be trifled with. A powerful beer with a load of flavors. One of my favorites from Lagunitas. (509 characters)

This seems a bit of a hybrid to me. There are definitely Belgian tones here, but they are subdued and smooth and not overly showy, besides a somewhat pronounced yeasty thing. The other side of this (opposite the Belgian one) are the distinct hoppy tones. Which I guess would make this...a Belgian IPA. Just my opinion. And a pretty nice one too; except it's a bit boozy. (370 characters)

I picked this up at Quick six on Mt Rose in York -poured from the bomber into 2 tulips -shared with tenderbranson69

A very clear mild amber color apricot shade of golden with visible carbonation and thick 3/4 inch bone white cap. Lace is sticky and retention is excellent with a fine bead. The smell of this ale is fairly fruity with a nice amount of belgian yeast esters in the nose. The hops add a touch of grassy piney accent to the aroma with hint of mild citrus. There is a mild bready malt odor, but gently blends with the yeast and hops. A feel that has tangy and full on with effervescent tingly and bright nuances of bitter grassy spice from the hops with a mellow sugar and moderate toasted malt texture w/subtle resinous hop accent and semi sweet/spicy finish.

The flavor has a good fruity yeast and hop cohesion which gives the hoppy citrus and light tropical flavor with spice from the yeast a lot of room to expand and cover the palate with an array of juicy and peppery notes. The yeast adds elements of melon while there is a rind-like taste from the hops and moderate amount of alcohol in the flavor with mild caramel malt which gives a light sweetness to the flavor but comes forward slightly as it wams with a gentle toasted character. Overall I recommend this to anyone who likes hops and belgian yeast together -this strain is nice to combine with west coast hops and Lagunitas did a good job incorporating in a pleasant way. I think this is drinkable especially for the amount of alcohol in the brew -you barely taste it -A solid offering. (1,565 characters)

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

LOOK: Peachy hue, excellent head and lacing

SMELL: Papaya, peppery, pineapple skin, blood oranges, bready, yeast, phenolic, taffy, gummy, spicy

TASTE: Medium bodied, semi-creamy, very smooth, soft hoppy resin, moving bitterness, biscuity, herbal, slightly medicinal, nutty, vegtal, a bit alcoholic

Love the whole Belgo-American movement, love Lagunitas as well. Very well balanced, Westmalle yeast battles dank hop in a higher alcohol arena ... everything a growing palate needs. Giving this brew a hearty HELL YEAH! (563 characters)

Review from notes. Had this a month or so ago...

Pours a bright/clear honey color with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Pears, peaches, plus citrus & piney hops

T: Follows the nose, some earthy notes & grapefruit up front. Dryness, grapefruit & herbal hops once warm, a little bit of cherry & pears as well. Finishes with citrus & piney hop & little more pear

MF: Medium bodied, smooth carbonation & good balance

Drinks easy, nice effort. Somewhat reminds me of Boulevard Tank#7 (515 characters)

First had: on tap at Pinocchio's, Media, PA

Very nice beer from a brewery that I generally find to be a bit underwhelming. Poured a burnt amber color, clear, with a moderate eggshell head. Pleasant hoppy aroma, cirtus zest and a dab of funk. Nice and crisp in the taste, a solid malt base with plenty of citrus and piney hops up front, juicy fruits, and a certain yeasty complexity. Medium-bodied, with a crisp, dry finish, and quite drinkable overall. (453 characters)

Pours a bright honey golden hue with a bright white head, speckled scattered lacing. Aroma has strong American hops with citrus/pine, and tropical fruit notes. Seems like they are following suit and making a hoppy Belgian style west coast IPA. Westmalle yeast strain, brings out banana/pineapple spicy esters. Flavor is competing with the Belgian yeast strain and American brash hop bitterness, sometimes this works sometimes it's a rough combo. Really great tasting version here spicy Belgian yeast with tropical fruit edges/banana/spice and upfront hops with citrus/grapefruit tones. Mouthfeel is medium bodied a tad oily with hops and smooth bodied carbonation. Drinkabilty is nice but after 22 ounces I'm good even splitting with a friend is a good idea but the flavors here worked well together. (800 characters)

Excited for this one; I enjoy Lagunitas' beers even if many of them taste very similar. 8.8% ABV confirmed. 72.5 IBU. 1.079 original gravity. Cost was $4.99 at the Cap N Cork Junior market. 1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Samuel Smith's conical pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are fairly high; I expect it to be about a B. Probably a B- on the low end.

Served after a slight warming period following removal from the refrigerator. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger white colour head of no real cream, but decent thickness and good retention for the high ABV. Body colour is a rather pale copper. Transparent and translucent. Not horribly vibrant, but also not dull. There's nothing unique or special here. It's to style. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Lacing is weak and thin.

Sm: Floral hop notes. Grassy. Lemon citrus. Hop extract. Pale malts. Some saison-esque yeasty notes; I asssume this is the Westmalle yeast manfiesting. A bit of light spice. Straw. Borders on brett-y. Light fruit esters from the hops. Hop oil. A moderate strength aroma, and a pleasant one. No alcohol is detectable. Fresh and inviting. Peppery.

T: I definitely get the peppery biscuity yeast on the climax - a very clean and enjoyable yeast flavour often unseen in IPAs. Pale malts for the foundation, of course. Some blood orange fruit/esters. Pleasantly lightly oily. Saison-esque light spiciness. Some pineapple. Clove. The yeasty notes are rich and delightful here; wow. Floral hops are the dominant hop character, but there a lurking hints of pine. It's well balanced all around. Vague tropical fruit hints from the hops. Quite nectary. Has sufficient body. Clean and fresh, but also somewhat chemically hoppy as though from extract. The finish is crisp and evocative, giving a twinge of fruit before the flavour departs. The sweetness lingers in the aftertaste, a pleasant effect that leaves me wanting more. No alcohol comes through. Nicely built for the style, with no hop bitterness coming through at all. I like it.

Mf: Lightly oily, but primarily smooth and wet - just as it should be. Somewhat overcarbonated and a touch too thick. Nectary. Sticky. Chewy. All things considered, it supports and enables the flavours quite well, but it doesn't add to them. It doesn't feel custom-tailored to the taste, but the texture does a good job nevertheless.

Dr: Quite drinkable, though the aforementioned carbonation and thickness issues do hold it back. The high ABV is nicely concealed, though - making this one a bit dangerous. All around it's a solid beer in the style. The yeasty notes are a highlight; I commend that choice. A clean refreshing summer IPA, and another solid brew from Lagunitas.

That said, it does possess that mystery factor that makes most of these hoppy Lagunitas brews taste the same. I think it's the distinct hop extract notes; something about the hopping is always the same with this brewery - though I'm not sure that's a bad thing. I do wish it was more distinct than Lagunitas' other hoppy beers, but I can't say I don't like this one. In any case, it's far from unique.

I'd get this one again, and I'd even casually recommend it to friends. Definitely a seasonal release worth picking up.

Low B

*I had to reduce the mouthfeel score to give the right letter grade to this beer. I do this to keep my reviews fair and consistent. Please see my profile for more information. (3,583 characters)

Pours a near-clear gold. Lumpy eggshell white head that leaves a thick ring of lace after each sip.

Fruity (sweet) with a grapefruit hop aroma.

Lots of effervescence on the tongue. Good pale malt start but it fades quickly to a strong hop of black pepper and grapefruit rind. Could easily pass for a Belgian-style IPA. Rich feel to the mouth despite the high carbonation. The finish has a bit of piney hop to it (414 characters)

Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Wild, Petaluma, California...let's have some POF!

Appearance: clear, amber coloration, big, pillowy white head.

Beautiful aromatics, wild and funky, some fruit and spice around, but the mainly other parts of the farm at work in this nose.

Taste: smoo-ooth, with plenty of character. Strong spices, black pepper, soft citrus, a bed of tasty pale malt. Delicious. Westmalle yeast strain bringing the goods, speeding utter tastiness all over the overwhelmingly pleasing and super-duper happiness bringing kind of ale.

Heat comes up and spikes the palate as we get further in...plenty of spice, matched with the mellow fruit factor. Tasty, tasty, tasty, yum, yum, yum. (694 characters)

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

a - Pours a hazy orange-amber color with one finger of fluffy white head and light carbonation evident. Great lacing.

s - Smells of orange, citrus, fruity malts, and grapefruit. Citrus dominates the nose but it's very nice.

t - Tastes of grapefruit, orange, citrus hops, fruity malts, and bready malts. Huge bitter bite to it.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation.

d - A pretty nice pale ale. Smell was very nice with a lot of grapefruit/citrus, and the taste had some huge bitterness to it. Would try again. (568 characters)

Served in a DFH signature glass. This is probably the best BELGIAN IPA IPA IPA I've ever had, IPA.

Beer is clear and orange with a decent white head of small and medium bubbles that leaves some lacing on the glass. Carbonation is moderate and steady, looks really good.

Aroma is amazing, seriously, its totally citrus hops, eclipses whatever contribution the yeast may have added to the aroma.

Beer is mildly sweet at the front, nice and hoppy in the middle, good fruit citrus flavors in the middle, and dry and bitter at the end. I don't really like the dryness of it but otherwise its quite quite good. I would definitely have this again. Its a great IPA, not too bitter, not too dry, nice hops, and mild sweetness. "Balanced" i suppose.

Bomber poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a hazy copper orange with a strong one finger white head that leaves light lacing down the glass.

S - Strong hop aroma consisting of spicy, resiny, hops with a hint of the alcohol that is contained in this one. A little sweetness from the malt and a little yeast? A good nose but not great.

T - Plenty of spicy, resiny, hops that leave a nice bitter feel on the pallet. Lots of sweet malts with a touch of bready yeast. Finishes with a strong, dry, taste from the alcohol. Pretty good taste but a tad on the boozy side.

M - Sticky sweet with medium flavor and body. Moderate carbonation with a good balance of flavors.

D - Fairly good offering. I liked this one but I don't think I would sit down and drink a bunch of these all at once. (786 characters)

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/6/2012. Pours crystal clear golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Some nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, lemon, pepper, clove, banana, bubblegum, honey, caramel, earth, and herbal spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, pepper, clove, light banana, pine, lemon, and herbal spiciness. Nice amount of peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pepper, clove, banana, pine, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance of spicy yeast flavors with hop flavors; with a good bitterness/sweetness balance as well. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish; extremely smooth to sip on. Overall this is a fantastic Belgian IPA. Fantastic yeast character and hop flavor balance; and very crisp and smooth to sip on. Wow, outstanding. (1,155 characters)

22oz bottle served in a Unibroue snifter.
Pours a deep butterscotch color with orange highlights and some visible carbonation. The small sudsy head is short-lived and only spotty but sticky lacing is left on the glass. This has a rather funky aroma that reflects sweet malts, Belgian yeast and hops in about equal parts. The flavor include suggestions of fruit, honey, toffee and spices, with a light peppery quality. M: medium body and smooth with a dry finish.
O: A special, flavorful and fine Belgian style ale, with an exceptionally strong malt base. It is reminiscent of, but not as satisfying to me, as the superb Lagunitas Lucky 13 Anniv. Ale I had last night. (668 characters)

A: Pours a clear very dark golden yellow in color with some light orange highlights and just a touch of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy off-white to light beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a couple of medium sized thick patches and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit hops, a little orange rind/citrus and a touch of fruitiness from the yeast - all this is over the top of light aromas of pale malts.

T: Upfront there is a light amount of pale malts with a touch of fruity yeast (apple, pear, and citrus/orange rind). Next there is a moderate flavor of grapefruit/citrus hops with moderate amounts of peppery spices. There is a light amount of bitterness and alcohol in the finish which linger for a while.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with light to moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Enjoyable and easy to drink with the alcohol being mostly well hidden and a very pleasant mouthfeel. Glad I grabbed this one and yet another impressive beer from this brewery. (1,211 characters)

The beer pours a beautiful golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is great! Wow, what a complex aroma; sweet pale and Munich malt scent; lots of citrus hops; and a wonderful Belgian yeast character. The taste is good. It has a crisp, citrus hop bitterness along with a solid pale malt base and tremendous Belgian yeast finish. It's really hoppy; almost overly so. The Belgian yeast adds tons of complexity. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a tasty beer. I love hops, but I wish it wasn't so bitter. The yeast esters take a backseat, unfortunately. (637 characters)

Poured into tulip. Pours 1/4 finger of white head. No lace. Color is a clear golden orange.

Aroma: Fruity and yeasty. Lemon zest, orange peel. Very Belgian-like. Grassy hops, herbal notes, and bready malts.

Taste: Lots of hops. Floral and earthy hop notes. It also has a Belgian yeast kick. Herbal spice notes with some malts. Fairly earthy reminding me of a Belgian ipa.

Mouthfeel: earthy, lightly bitter, and smooth. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends fairly clean with some grassy hops.

Overall, a lot like a beligan ipa. Fairly drinkable. Some nice flavors all around. (597 characters)

Had this on tap at the Fort Worth Flying Saucer Fall Beerfest.

The beer pours a copper color with a white head. The aroma is pretty fruity with some notes of pineapple and other citrus. I also get some toffee and caramel malt and a strong Belgian yeast component. The flavor is more of the same, with some bready malt and some grapefruit and orange citrus notes. The yeast is also very present and adds some strong Belgian character to the beer. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

Not really anything too wild about this beer, but it is a good drink. (559 characters)

Review from notes. Thanks to my brother for a bottle.

A: Pours a clear golden/orange color with a one finger foamy head on top. Decent retention and thin lacing around most of the glass.

S: Don't get much in the way of Belgian spices/yeast, mostly pine and some citrus fruit.

T: Again, don't get very much in the way of a Belgian presence. Nice piney flavor though with some light citrus mixed in.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Abv comes through a little bit as it warms.

O: Had you told me it was a regular IPA, score probably would be a bit higher. I liked it, but did not love it. (628 characters)

Review from notes taken on 12/9/10.

Poured into a snifter, this brew appears a very clear orange color with a finger of white foam that is slightly stained yellow and retains quite well. Long leggy patches of lace cling all along the glassware.

The aroma displays plenty of hop character including scents of citrus, minty herbs and pine is the leading character. There is Belgian yeasty notes through the nose like spicy clove and sweet bubblegum. As it warms, the hops seem green and leafy coupled with a seemingly candy-like sweetness. A faint touch of fruit like mango makes it through the back.

The taste of this brew is green leafy hops coupled with a semi-dry fruit like pear mixed with mango upfront. Moderately bitter that clings and lasts on the tongue. A bit of green yeast taste is evident mid-palate. There is an herbal aftertaste that mixes with a light grainy sweetness and a touch of mineral quality in the finish.

Medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Very drinkable ad well balanced. This is an interesting take on a quasi Belgian ipa. For almost 9% abv it is hidden quite well but the Belgian phenols become increasingly evident as the brew warms. (1,186 characters)

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer is transparent and golden hued, with 1/4" of white head. It seems like lately I've been drinking a lot of beers that look like this. The aroma brings some dank hops, alcohol, and sweet malt. The flavor is decent, albeit a bit sharp. Thin to medium bodied, with a fairly present alcohol presence. I'm not as impressed as the large majority with this brew. A valiant effort, but I would take ubiquitous Duvel over this any time. (466 characters)

A solid pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a four-figner thick, pale tan tinged head that leaves quite a bit of lacing on the sides of my glass. The beer is a gold to light copper hue that shows a brilliantly clear, rich gold hue when held up to the light. Ahh, the aroma is nicely hoppy; it smells of expressive tangelo oils (like tearing through the skin of a super ripe tangelo), ample lychee, bright kumquat zest and a touch of dank herbaceous character towards the finish. It is really quite striking how much this smells of tangelo oils, I am really enjoying that aspect of the nose. Perhaps a hint of clove adds some complexity to the hop character, but the Westmalle yeast is fairly muted here. The malt, while definitely subtle, is a touch more noticeable than the yeast; it contributes supporting notes of pale malt cracker notes and perhaps a hint of dried hay that mixes in with the hop character.

Lightly sweet tasting with an ample citrusy hop fruitiness up front, as the beer moves across the tongue it picks up flavors of juicy fruit bubble gum, a big lychee note and tangelo zest, while the finish has just a hint of herbal character and menthol. The middle while it seems all hop influenced is actually accentuated by a light clove character. Not overly bitter up front, but the bitterness grows through the finish and finally lingers on the palate with a nice biting note that is accentuated by some phenolic yeast notes. Quite light bodied and drinkable, dangerously so when you consider the strength of this beer, I really love how drinkable this is and it is likely the biggest influence of the yeast character; this certainly has the drinkability of a good Belgian beer and quite dangerously so given the strength of this beer, but it has just enough texture and body that the fruity hop character is wonderfully accentuated. The dominant hop fruitiness really is just infused from the beginning to end of each sip, it really is the most noticeable part of the flavor from beginning to end. A touch of yeast derived bubble-gum notes seem to accentuate the juicy-fruit flavors from the hops and also the bright tropical fruit flavor that this beer has.

Judged as a purely hop-driven beer (which this is, despite the yeast), the nose on this beer is fantastic; so vibrantly fresh and hoppy with it smooth, über-fruit character and just enough balancing herbal character to keep things interesting. The yeast character is a bit more noticeable in the flavor, but it is still a weak supporting cast member when compared to the hops, but at least it does a good job with the role it does play; it is not overly phenolic, nor does it contribute flavors that clash with the hop notes, instead it integrates quite nicely with the dominant hop character. Some part of me wishes that this had more characteristics of the Westmalle yeast strain present, but in my hop-heart I know that I would not have liked the beer nearly as much even though this would have ended up a more complex. So yes, this is simplistically hop focused, but there is just enough malt and yeast character to support the hops and to really let them shine here. I can't help but really enjoy this beer; and I think I might have found a beer from this brewery to rival fresh Hop Stoopid. (3,278 characters)

On Tap @ Capone's

Something wild looks like a mix of IPA and SPA with a bright yellow color with some minimal orange highlights. Cant really see through the liquid, it's not that clear cut. A nice whisp of bright white foam on top with some stickies. Smell is IPA mixed in with bananas and yeast. I get a tropic sense and a bready sense, pineapple, mango, yeast. Taste is weird, the yeast really takes center stage and blows everything out da water. Either this is the end of the keg, or the Westmalle yeast is just that powerful. Tropic fruits alot of bananers and yeast, malt under all of that. Feel is medium and nicely carbed up. This kinda felt like juice going down, I would love to try this on cask. Drinkability was alright, I did not feel the need to have another. Im going to say this is good beer for now but I think a bottle will be in store for the future, so I can get more of an IPA taste from it, this serving type was yeasted up big time. (956 characters)
