2012 bottle poured into a snifter glass.

A: Pours a dark amber red color, very nice. Two fingers worth of white head, creamy, recedes to a nice skim and leaves lots of lace, big legs.

S: Sweet sugary malt, caramel, citrus, light pine, moderate amount of signature Laggy tropical fruits.

T: Excellent blend of caramel, maple syrup, toffee, sweet molasses and big, juicy, sticky tropical fruits in the way of pineapple, grapefruit and overripe peaches. Bitterness is medium and finishes sweet, big residual sweetness, sticky, and slightly hoppy.

M: Light to medium feel, smooth, medium carbonation. Alcohol is pretty well masked, slight warmth on the finish.

O: I've had quite a few Lagunitas beers and they all taste very similar to me, which isn't a bad thing at all. This one is tasty, and does a great act between the caramel, brown sugar sweetness, and juicy tropical fruity hops. Really nice stuff.
