I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. From the Bomber bottle to a standard pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a ruby red with a 1/2" dirty white head that does not last long.
Smell: Pungent, grassy hops with a nice toasted malt back.
Taste: Similar to the nose, this beer tastes of grassy hops and toasted malts with just a hint of alcohol to finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, a little sticky and a good dry finish.
Drinkability: Good. Went down nice and I could easily enjoy another bomber. Would/will drink again and recommend.

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.
