Texas

4.28/5  rDev +12%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: This beer pours a mahogany brown hue. The tanned pillowy head stacks up to a nice two finger height and maintained a good head retention as well. A few columns of beading can be found inside and no laceing to speak of.

Smell: The aromas of sweet malts are very fragrant. This has some fruity aromas with some citrus and floral hops. Light alcohol in the nose. Hints of chocolate can be found as well.

Taste: The flavors consist of a citrus bitterness, roasted malts, caramels galore and the alcohol seems to be well masked for an 8.8%.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a high amount of carbonation. Creamy, smooth with an almost dry finish.

Drinkability: This is another good beer produced by Lagunitas. If you haven't had this yet, I say go get it. It is worth the trouble.
