look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Bottle was purchased at the Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA during a recent beer haul.
Poured and enjoyed in a DFH Signature glass
A - Beer pours a semi-translucent, golden amber color. A half to three-quarters finger head that fades to a raged skim. Decent lacing left after sampling.
S - A faint malt aroma. Underwhelming.
T - A malt forward, moderately hoppy beer. A mix of various flavors that include a caramel-like sweetness, pine and a grassy/earthy taste. Very easy drinking. The ABV isn't noticeable.
M - Moderate carbonation. Medium consistency.
O - I'm a huge fan of Lagunitas but this beer just didn't do it for me. It's not that it isn't good, its just that it's a bit of a let-down . Lagunitas' Sucks was a top-5 beer for me last year but this pales in comparison, even though it's a different style. This is the first beer from them that I haven't raved about in my reviews.

3.56/5 rDev -4.6%

Pours a transparent copper color with a substantial head of sudsy, khaki foam. Aroma is pleasantly light and fruity, consisting of lemon grass, banana, clove, and grassy hops.
The taste features a light caramel malt up front along with a healthy kick of grassy hops that make way for an equally potent kick of peppery/herbal hops. A grain husk musk shores up the back end. The peppery hops are the clear focal point here, as they practically sizzle on the back of the tongue whilst the other flavors recede. It's an interesting sensation, albeit a little heavy-handed. The mouthfeel is a little thin, perhaps passably semi-creamy, propped up by some perky carbonation.
Overall, this is an interesting and flavorful brew. The closest analogue I can muster is Domaine Dupage, although the flavors here are more coarse and strident. It's not something I would seek out to enjoy, but it's worth trying.
