Served in a Stone Ruination IPA pint.

A- Copper in color with a 2 finger light tan head and lacing that remains.

S- Sweet malts, lots of citrus (mainly pineapple and grapefruit).

T- Sweet amber toasted malts with lots of citrus just like the aroma.

M- Medium body and carbonation, has a slight oiliness to it.

O- Another solid beer by Lagunitas. Not sure how this is a strong ale, more of a ipa, but its good either way.
