22oz bomber poured between a couple pint glasses.
Pours a red tinged copper with a nice khaki head. Good amount of lacing that leaves a solid ring after each sip.
Malty sweetness blasts up to kick your face in. Earthy, bisquity, caramely sweetness with a nice balance in the background with the weakened hops come out to play. Lite citrus notes.
Hops come out a bit heavier in the taste. Citrus hops play off the caramel sweet hops, giving a bit of balance to the "mondo". More graininess on the tongue through the finish. Tastes like candied tangerine peels, or something of the like. The IBU's really come out as it warms, so if you wanted some hops, you won't be disappointed.
Slide down quite easily. Bready taste resonates, making you want to wash it out rather than go for another. ABV will sneak up on you so take it easy.

A- Dark rich copper in color. Slightly hazy. Creamy two finger off white head leaves moderate lacing.
S- Sour bready malt and yeast. Bitter dank hops behind that.
T- Huge malt and hop flavors melt together with a bitter and sour feel. There's alot going on and plenty of flavor to go around. The aftertaste is a muted version of the beginning. Slightly warming in the end.
M- Med to heavy bodied. Malty but this fades strangely to a more smooth feel towards the end.
O- Plenty of flavor, wonderful look and a decent feel. I don't feel I'm up to rate this brew fairly because its not in my wheelhouse. I'm not a fan of this style, although I can see how some may like it. Too much sour, malty mess. However it does improve with temperature. This one may need to be served a little warmer. Lagunitas consistently puts out brews that inspire me. Unfortunately this one is not one of my favorites. Such is life.
Edit- with no apparent date on the bottle and after reading other reviews, I think this must be a older beer. A complete break down on the hop flavor I experienced leads me to feel this way. I think I need to give this one another go to be sure.
