Picked up a six pack of this the other night. I didn't even realize it was a Holiday beer until I read the ridiculous prose on the bottom of the six pack case. A bit verbose, Lagunitas! But I forgive ye, for ye maketh delicious hoppy beers.
Pours a transparent crimson amber color with a one and a half finger head that is respectably retained. Lacing is sparse.
Smells of bright and fresh Willamette hops with a sharp maple coming through shortly after.
Interesting and entertaining taste. It first hits you with a hop explosion which quickly fades into a splash of bready sweetness (cranberry muffin comes to mind). Yum yum.
Full-bodied all the way, without being syrupy or chewy.
Dangerous at nearly 10% ABV. I drank this down pretty quickly and felt the buzz.
You have got to try this beer. I was happy to find it in a sixer for only $10.
