3.41/5 rDev -16%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass. The beer is a deep, clear amber with enough head for me to stop pouring for fear of overflowing the glass. The head retention was very good and left nice lacing on the side of the glass.
S - Mostly maltiness with a hint of the relatively strong ABV.
T - Not my favorite. Overly malty for me with a finish that contained a strong alcoholic presence. There was a hint of bite to it from the hops, which I liked, but I couldn't really detect any of that flavor that I know so well.
M - Not as clean as the appearance would have lead me to believe. Tasted a little syrupy to me, but it did have a nice amount of carbonation. The good beat out the bad by a small margin.
O - I picked up this beer completely blind based on my love of all the Lagunitas products that I've had. This one was much maltier and much boozier than I expected. I would not buy it again, and will be more careful about selecting brews blindly based on previous experience. I still rate Lagunitas as my 3rd favorite brewery.

Pours a dark amber with a frothy off white head - good retention & very nice lacing.
Smells like a barley wine with that thick resinous pine scent. It also has some nice floral notes and toffee.
Taste is resinous pine eased by sweet toffee with bitter herb in the back rounding it out. The bitter and sweet swing around the beautiful malt backbone. This is a big delicious beer.
