Since we just recently got Lagunitas here in NC, I was very pleasantly surprised to see this one at Flying Saucer after enjoying a sample in April at the World Beer Festival. Poured into a Belgian glass a nice copper amber with a decent head that lasted as a thin layer and leaves spectacular lacing. Aroma was some nice caramel malt and slight pine. Taste was an almost perfect balance of burnt caramel and pine hops, very flavorable. The beer is medium bodied with some alcohol, but for the strength it's fairly well hidden. This is an immensly enjoyable beer that I would certainly enjoy again if given the opportunity.

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
