3.94/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours dark; near black with cola brown edging. Head is a khaki color and fluffs up to 2 fingers thick, showing excellent retention and resulting in a thin layer of surface suds. Fair lacing with good stick.

Smell - Classic Lagunitas aroma here; ruby red grapefruit, pineapple, orange and touches of pine.

Taste - Follows the nose. Bittersweet red grapefruit qualities, with lesser notes of pineapple and orange. Fair notes of pine by mid-taste. Malts are pushed back, far back, but what's there comes across as light caramel with traces of roast. Maybe some rye? Citrus pith bitterness and spice rings in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with fair carbonation. Smooth.

Overall - Another Lagunitas release, another beer that tastes nearly identical to their core line-up. Sure, there are minor differences in each, but the dominant hop profiles are all basically the same. This beer is good, just don't expect anything innovative. In that respect, it's a disappointment.

4.29/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

In the absence of light this has a deep, dark brown appearance. With bright light this has a deep ruby red color that darkens on the edges. Poured with a short, light beige foam that reduced to a thin cap that left sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Dank, ripe citrus hop aromas along with earthy, grainy, roasted malt and fresh, resinous pine hop notes at the end. Full bodied, smooth creamy body up front that, resinous feel through the middle, and tangy, tight, carbonation from the middle to the end. Roasted malt and tropical citrus hop flavors up front with the hop flavor expanding into the middle. Pine hop flavors are introduced in the middle overtop the sturdy roasted malt backbone and slowly expand from the middle to the end. Finished cleanly with a lingering roasted malt and bitter hop aftertaste. Complex and enjoyable.
