Pours hazy brown, shot thru with ruby highlights. Head builds up initially, but doesn't stick around too long after everything gets settled around in my glass.
Fruity smelling, caramel malt layered upon a citrus bite, topped off with faintest whiff of alcohol.
Chewy, rich malted goodness. Caramel sweetness that darkens into roasted notes. Hop flavors shine thru briefly, only to blend seamlessly into the background, contributing another brick to this brew's wall of flavor.
To me, Lagunitas has a definite knack for crafting some beers that can really only be enjoyed not as everyday drinkers, but tasty occasional treats. Hairy Eyeball is one of those, I think. I wonder what effect a little time in a cool, dark place would have...
