Very nice copper color and lacing as it goes down. The aroma was a precursor to the unexpected hoppiness. I am a hop head but the mega 'pine' hop flavor in this beer seemed unwelcome. I expected this to be better. I did like the splash of plum/fruit flavor in the middle, but I guess what I'm trying to say is that there's too much going on, in a bad way in this particular one. Very 'boozy.' I don't understand the reviewers who feel that it's balanced. This is my first Lagunitas offering, and I def. want to give them another try though.

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.
