Glows a pretty orange red with hints of copper. Atop rests a slightly orange white head comprised of extremely fine, dense little bubbles. Aroma contains a giant punch of citrus, light pine hops over moderately sweet caramel malt. Basic but well done. Taste matches rather well. Appropriate sweetness, moderate bitterness, and packed with citrus. Very nice fine carbonation is certainly a bonus and this is also very drinkable for what it is.
I'll be picking this up every once + awhile. A good 'have whenever' type brew in my opinion.

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.
