4.3/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Pours a deep hazy amber. Lots of foamy white head with massive lacing. Decent retention. Some visible carbonation
Smells like sweet caramel malts and some toastiness. There's some resinous pine hop character but it takes a backseat to the sweet malts
Taste follows the nose for the most part. Starts of with huge sweet caramel malts. A touch of brown sugar. Toasty bread. Then comes some big sticky pine and grass hops. Juicy and moderately bitter. Well-balanced while also showcasing extreme sweetness and big hop bitterness. Aftertaste is of pine
Feels very juicy. Pretty full-bodied. Slightly coating. Spicy carbonation
Overall another fantastic offering from Lagunitas. My current favorite amber. Very reminiscent of Troegs Nugget Nectar but a little sweeter. The ABV is very well-hidden. Affordable and delicious. Wish I had a case!

Gotta love the label graphic - nicely done
Looks like this was bottled about April 23rd 2013, so it's got a lot of age on it now! Bought at the end of last September and mistakenly aged. That might explain why it came across as more of an ESB than an American amber.
Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams nonick.
a: Nearly clear dark amber/copper with an inch plus offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Mild caramel malt.
t; First impression is its pleasing silky smoothness, followed by a nice caramel malt and hops balance. Sweet to dry finish. Its 8.65% ABV is well concealed.
m: Medium, silky smooth.
o: A very enjoyable and satisfying ESB-style ale, highly sippable and savory in texture and overall taste. I'd buy this again anytime of year. However I'll need to try a much fresher bottle to confirm this.
Serving type: growler
