(A) Pours a clean, orange color with copper hues around the darker edges of the glass. Very little to no head, even given a rough pour. Head subsided quickly.
(S) Smell of grapefruit and honey. Can't put my finger on it, but it smells like a sour sugar, almost like a green apple. There's a lot of light pale malt in there.
(T) Taste is actually really sweet. Kind of like that of a triple. Almost like they used belgian white candi sugar to help up the ABV. There are some definite residual sugars in this brew. It's very malty with a slight topping of hops. There is some orange rind in the back of the taste and it lingers for a bit in the aftertaste.
(M) Slightly grainy and carbonated on the tongue. Light to medium body and oily and thin.
(O) I really enjoy Lagunitas, but there was something off about this beer. Possibly a bad bottle/batch, so I will revisit it at some point. The initial reaction is not a great one though. The aroma was alright, but the flavor was too sweet. Almost like an IPA and an American Triple combined.
