look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5
A: pours a very nice deep gold clear liquid with a nice head with substantial retention. A very attractive beer in appearance.
S: strong scent. Floral hops with grass and pine wood-chips. Impossible to ignore, it makes you excited for the first sip.
T: falls incredibly far from expectations. A strong soapy taste dominates the whole experience. Sweet and sour flavors taste stale (and this bottle is well within date of freshness) and rancid. It blends right into the bitterness that you want from the hops, but the flavors never separate out, ruining the whole mouth. Not impressed.
M: medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: again, despite the Lagunitas hype- really not impressed. While the alcohol content is well masked, this beer is unbalanced and overpowering in a way that lingers.
Serving type: bottle
