4.28/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
bottle into duvel glass
appearance: amber ruby red with mahogany hue, 2 finger really bubbly white head
smell: sweet malt with an earthy citrus/grapefruit body, also tangerine, lemon and other floral notes, caramel, some vanilla on the backend, more sugary sweetness
taste: earthy floral notes balanced well with a sugary sweet malt backbone. Getting notes of citrus, bitter grapefruit, even some sugary caramel. The finish is less bitter than nose would suggest, coating your tongue with that typical Lagunitas sugary, resiny sweetness.
mouthfeel: average carbonation (a little higher than most lagunitas), average bodied
overall: A great beer from Lagunitas. Easily one of their better ones, is it just me or do a lot of their beers taste really similar? They seem to all have the same sugary sweetness, this one may take the cake though, it has the sweetness of Undercover and Sumpin Sumpin, but with the earthy, fruity hoppiness to back it up.

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.
