Had on-tap at Barley's Taproom Asheville. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a reddish medium brown color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains very well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a large center patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Delightful aroma of earthy hops which is accentuated by a very soily smell that I suppose is from the yeast? There's also some toastiness but it's overpowered by this soil.

T- Ok so now I'm starting to think the soily nature of this beer is actually coming from the hops which would have been my last guess (malt being my second). The reason I think this is because the bitterness commingles with this soiliness very closely. Other than that, it's an overall smooth brew with a very unique hop flavor and the alcohol is very well concealed.

M- A bit dry with medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- If you dig earthy hops, this is right up your alley. A well-executed brown ale which I was expecting since, after all, it is Lagunitas.

Look - fantastic Amber brown color with a good head and great lacing!
Smell - smells like an ipa which throws of the brown ale. I love ipas and think it smells great. Also has a hoot malt smell though.
Taste - great toasty Amber brown hoppy taste
Feel - light carbonation light to medium body.
Overall - fantastic brown ale if you love hoppy beers.

As the summery taste of hops come to a close and the darker taste of fall rises, a few brewers say "never say die" as they embrace the "brown" flavor with a healthy heaping of fresh hops for a unique taste, texture and scent.

Bronzen gold in its pour, a golden strand hold true to show the beer's "pale" influence. Hovering over the glass, bold aromas of tropical, citrus and herb leap forward and allow a background of sweetness to greet the tastebuds with caramel, light chocolate and toast.

But with a blooming middle palate, the taste recedes with sweetness but a fruitier hop complement takes charge. A bold grounding of malt rivals command with toasted bread, light wood and a nutty roundness. But the brightness of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon and lime create an acidic taste that's both curious and comforting.

Medium-light in its body, the beer is dry, toasty and resinous in its finish. Lingering with pine and forrest, a woodsy tone persists, all opening the way for strong boozy brine and a pithy bitterness to close the taste.
