look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed in a tulip glass.

A: pours a nice coppery color with about 1 finger white head t when dissipates leaves nice lacing around the glass.

S: very earthy aroma, mostly sweet malts.

T: Very light flavor, mostly bread like flavor. A sweet malty flavor with a slight presence of hops toward the end of the drink.

M: highly carbonated. Great body. Very smooth and easy to drink.

Overall, does not compare to the rest of lagunitas line up. Easy to drink, some flavor but nothing stands out. Not very impressive but not bad at the same time.

Poured into pint glass

A: Deep amber color with minimal offwhite head. Bits of sticky lacing, and some fine sediment, but not quite hazy.

S: Sweet toffee, bread, caramel, grassy hop. Just a touch on the sweeter side.

T: Sweet and roasty malts blend nicely here; it's got a really tasty toasted grain flavor. Slight hop bitterness in the finish that is enough to notice, but not anything special.

M: Very drinkable, moderate carbonation, light-medium body. It's very refreshing but not creamy smooth, it's still got a little bite which I like.

O: Not my favorite offering from Lagunitas, but it's still a really tasty beer. I was expecting something much hoppier, but I guess the rest of their catalog is hoppy, so I really can't complain.

Nose: Rich caramel. A little bit of grassy hops. Plenty of toffee, and some vanilla notes.

Appearance: Very clear, beautiful copper color. Shiny like a new penny. About 1/2 inch of off-white head the lingers just long enough.

Taste: Sweet, chewy malts. Lots of caramel. A little vanilla. Ever-so mildly tart on the sides. Excellent hops presence - floral and green. Smooth, but a little yeasty.

Overall: Another good one from Lagunitas. Subtle and dynamic and excellently balanced.

Pours a clear brown with a tan head two fingers high that fades quickly but leaves nice rings of lace.

The aroma is citrus, orange and grapefruit with floral notes on a caramel and bread background. Nice balance.

The flavor is bready underneath with sweet caramel tones and floral notes of honeysuckle, orange blossom on top of grapefruit juice and orange zest.

Nice balance, clean and refreshing with medium body

Overall, nicely balanced, tasty and interesting.
