Poured a dark copper amber clear color with two fingers of khaki white head. Lighter than expected sporadic lacing on the sides. Average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled a pleasant mix of floral hops, citrus hops (grapefruit) and bitter Belgian spices.
Tasted similar to the nose but with a long lingering bitter finish. Could definitely taste the alcohol. Also got floral hops, citrus hops (grapefruit) and some caramel malts.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively (above average) carbonation. Long, bitter finish.
Just another solid beer from Lagunitas. Wouldn’t expect anything less.

Pours a very nice looking dark amber color with a good sized light brown head. Decent retention and lacing.
Lots of malts in the aroma. Burst of citrus. Pine. Surprisingly no hints of alcohol. Some roasted grains, a little bit of a funky smell to them.
Taste is extremely powerful. Very sweet. Lots of caramel malts up front, very very strong. Some bready malts in there too. Pine resin. Good amount of citrus, as well. Grapefruit, pineapple, orange. Once again, the alcohol is masked extremely well. Lots of strong tastes in this.
Medium bodied with not too much carbonation. A little syrupy and resinous.
Overall, a very solid beer. One of my first (possibly the first) American Strong Ale, and I love it. Lots of flavor. The alcohol is masterfully masked. This was a good one.
