4.47/5  rDev +19.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Tried my first bottle of this last night. It's somewhat of a treat because we can't get Lagunitas in KY. I like the idea behind the name. Pours a slightly dark amber color with a tall white head with excellent retention and leaves tons of lumpy lacing on the glass. I actually couldn't just rinse the lace off after drinking, had to actually wipe it. The aroma had caramel malts with some citrus and pine hops. Very pleasing aroma. The flavor has a very strong caramel backbone, but it is not overpowering. The hops come through well - citrus and pine mostly. This is exceptionally balanced. The mouthfeel is very good as it has a very thick body - I respect a copper ale that's not thin. Drinkability is great as well. I must say, this is one of the best amber/copper ales I've had.

3.64/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Tasted On: 07-07-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Gift from a friend

A: Beer is clear and copper in color, with a big head of offwhite. Shows very good head retention and a nice lace.

S: Aromas are malty — crystal and caramel malts, plus wheat bread. Smells like when I am steeping grain

T: The taste is semi-sweet from the malts, but there is also a dose of earthy/woody hops to add a light to moderate amount of bitterness.

M: Body is medium and the beer finishes with a balance of both hop bitterness and caramel malt notes.

O: Nothing too flashy here, but a good, balanced ale.

Thanks to Kirk for sharing!
