Censored beer - my first Lagunitas CA beer. Picked it up for the bottle art and thought copper ale sounded interesting
Appearance - Lives right up the expectation when you pour it out of the bottle, a beautfiul orange to red beer that shimmers in the light.
Smell - The only downside is that the beer has an off smell, metallic but maybe too much hops.
Taste - A smooth ale that runs into the hoppy heaven that is sweet and bitter at the same time.
Mouthfeel - the beer has a nice carbonation and metallic end taste that really makes it for me. I also pick up maybe citrus and fresh herbs
Overall - This is a nice drinker. I might have to get Lagunitas again and try some more of their styles

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.
