Poured into a tulip.

It's a hazy reddish amber. There is a whitish lacing around the top with a few bubbles working their way to the top.

It smell sweet, grassy, faintly citrusy.

It's a sweet beer. But it's got some bite to it. There is a lot of grassy hop flavor as well. There are some spicy notes as well that I can't put my finger on. Orange?

It's a medium bodied but maybe a touch thicker. Appropriate carbonation.

This was a 2 year old bottle of the beer. It was my last one. It did get better as it aged. Not my favorite Lagunitas but I am looking forward to this years winter seasonal.
