A - Pours a deep amber copper red color with little to no carbonation, thin tan lacing ring at the top, and can see right through. Really looks good!
S - Aroma is a little faint. Has caramel malt with a piney undertone, not overly strong. There's also a trace of floral aroma.
T - Very enjoyable. The tip of the tongue gets tickled up front first and foremost with a piney hop presence. Minimal amount of grapefruit followed with some caramel malt, then ends with floral bitterness. The malt is interesting, presents itself on the tongue as a little tangy and slightly acidic. The ABV is impressively hidden.
M - Body is on the heavier side of medium. Is a little bit chewy, and leaves an aftertaste that I can best describe as toasted caramel floral hoppiness with a lingering citric bite.
D - Very nice balance.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
