3.9/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

It pours a slightly hazy coppery amber. A finger of off-white head flattens soon to frothy surface pips. Fingers of lacing trace the inside of the glass.

The aroma brings a light air of toasted malt along with a floral hop perfume. A mellow spiciness drifts softly as well, in time with an understated tempo of alcohol.

Upon tasting, the malt is considerably more assertive, flashing toasty sweet and with touches of caramel and distant berry, or maybe cherry. A very casual hop florality and spiciness pairing flits peripherally. The finish is a straightforward march to a dry, lingering bitterness. It's very simple, and quite tasty for that simplicity.

Between light and medium bodied, it manages to lay feathery on the palate in a pillowy coating.

OK, so maybe this won't exactly stand out in a crowd, but it's certainly enjoyable while you're drinking it. It's not the kind of profile that conjures fond memories later on, but the fun is in the here and now. The easy nature and mellow elements, not to mention the well-disguised ABV, make this a pleasure to drink. So if nothing else, I'll remember I like it enough to willingly have it again.

3.38/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a golden, clear amber with nice lacing rings on the glass. Smells are sweet, caramel malts, some fruit from the hops in this brew. Tastes balanced. Nice malt/hop ratio. Biscuity and sweet with just enough hop profile. Mouthfeel is also balanced with some carbonation and fullness. Overall, a pretty decent brew. I would buy it again although there are a few other Lagunitas brews I prefer over this one. Cheers.

4.09/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Deep amber. Even bronze-like. Thin off-white head. Not too much lacing.

S: Very bready and earthy. Mineraly. When cold, you smell the hops more, but as it warms, it brings out the more malty and earthy tones.

T: Less hops than I expected. Quite peaty at first and goes to the dark bready and malt flavors. Slighty abrasive, but in a good way.

M: Medium to light bodied. Light carbonation. Not too bad. Not to heavy on the stomach.

O: Not too bad. A decent offering from my favorite brewery. It's nice to know that they can make something that's not bombarded by hops. Personally, it strongly reminds me of a scotch ale because of the very earthy and peaty tones. For one of my first copper ales, I like it. Definitely recommended.
