A - Auburn brown. Nice head that laces nicely.
S - Typical Lagunitas hoppiness, with a nice malty buiscuit note. I smell some brown sugar, but bot overpowering.
T - This is nicely balanced. The hops are definitely there, as a W. Coast ale should be, but this is definitely more balanced with the malt. It ifinishes sweet, but not too syrupy.
M - Smooth and pleasantly creamy. Nicely carbonated, but not sharp on the tongue by any means.
D - This is very drinkable for a Fall/Winter offering. I will have a hard time sharing this 6-pack, but at 7.5%, will need to stretch it out over a few sessions.
