Been lusting for this for a while - since last year's fiasco/ marketing ploy. It almost lived up to the hype....
Great color - bright caramel. Not much in the nose....expected more signature Lagunitas scent up front. Once I taste the first sip though, I can see instantly that the lack of a heavy hop nose is indicative of the GREAT balance exhibited in this brew. Just enough hop bite, mellowed by a perfect malt sweetness.
Each sip left a ring of thick lacing. Like a redwood tree, it's easy to count the "sip-age" of this brew. I'm counting thirteen "rings" and I'm almost to the bottom and ready to order another...
Why-oh-why can't I drink this every month of the year?
Overall, this may not be spectacular, or even the best that Lagunitas has to offer...but, I can't imagine a better pour on any given Thursday.
Serving type: on-tap
