After having this on tap every week for a month or two last spring, I've been waiting for it's return and now it's here. Definetely my favorite of the Lagunitas brand beers.
Poured into a 10oz flute glass from New Holland. Creates a rich fluffy cappuccino like head off white in color. Body is reddish amber. Smells of hops, caramel, and a tiny touch of vanilla. Taste is bigger and hoppier than I remember it. Sweet and dry hops, and caramel again. Mouthfeel is medium carbonation and dry as it goes down. Drinkability is great as this is quite balanced, the alcohol is present but it's not stopping me just one bit.
Excellent beer, and was happy to have it back this year.

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
