From tasting notes... Poured from 750 ml bottle into CBS snifter.

A) This is a nice reddish amber, fairly clear. There was a full finger of head, that was very well maintained. There was plenty of lacing as well. This was quite attractive.

S) Extremely pleasant aroma, sweet oranges, tropical fruits, blending well with the malt. A hint of alcohol, but really just a hint.

T) Fantastic balance as far as I'm concerned. I enjoyed everything about the flavor. The malt is bready with a little caramel sweetness, and the fresh fruit tastes included peaches, oranges, mango and pineapple. The 8.90 ABV is really in the background. This was quite delicious...

M) A medium bodied brew that is pretty lightly carbonated. This is so freaking smooth. This is just kick back and relax sipping beer.

O) Damn this was good. The more I drink of Lagunitas, the more this brewery impresses me. I wish I had more than 1 bottle. This is top notch, and I highly recommend.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

APPEARANCE: This beer, poured from a tap into a pint glass, produced an off-white frothy 1" head that dissipated slowly leaving good head lacing. Carbonation was soft in a hazy amber body.

AROMA: A gentle, slightly sweet scent of moderate pineapple and mango with a bit of pine and citrus hoppiness offset by a note of caramel and a very slight bit of alcohol.

TASTE: An enticing sweet mango and pineapple with a bit of honey and caramel followed by the pine and citrus hops hit. Avery light hint of alcohol warmth. All in all, well matched and pleasurable without being overwhelming.

MOUTHFEEL: This beer has a medium body with a smooth texture, soft carbonation and good body lacing that dissipates slowly. The initial flavor is moderately sweet with a lightly sweet, bitter finish that lasted for a moderate length of time.

DRINKABILITY: This is definitely a winner but because of the high alcohol content, it's sipping beer, not a session beer as are many other amber ales. It's perhaps a little more hoppy than a typical amber ale but that is a positive distinguishing characteristic. The beer has a decent price to value tradeoff and I'd definitely buy it again.

Serving type: on-tap
