4.46/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nice copper color with a two finger head and heavy lacing left around the edge of the glass.

S - The smell is quite glorious and I instantly want to rush to taste what is next. Citrus flavors overwhelm the nose. Strong smells of hops also come through which is to be expected from this selection.

T - Malty flavors right away along with floral and grapefruit flavors. It's a very smooth beer and based on the smell I would have expected it to be far more bitter on the finish but in a very pleasant way, it is not overly bitter whatsoever.

M - A full-bodied beer with moderate carbonation which allows for a full flavor profile to come through. Despite the 9.6% ABV this beer is quite drinkable and would be ideal for any season.

O - I would highly recommend this beer to anyone even if they are apprehensive of hops overpowering their beer. And as I stress once again, 9.6% alcohol, it'll get the job done. Well done Lagunitas, you have yourselves another winner.
