look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 22 oz bomber into a wine glass.
A - Orange copper color with about 1 finger of head, good lacing.
S - Strong caramel malts, mild tropical fruit hop notes, some alcohol.
T - To me this was a malt bomb. Extremely strong sweet caramel malts all the way through with a slight bitter hop finish.
M - Very thick and oily, medium carbonation.
O - A pleasant beer however it wasn't as hop forward as i thought it would be. Still very tasty and cheap.

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.
