3.38/5 rDev -16.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Poured a dark copper color with a thick 2-finger beige head of tightly laced, thick foam that held amazingly well (4.5)The aroma is heavily citrus-hop based (sharp grapefruit) with a sweet caramel background. (4.0)
Taste starts out bready with malty caramel tones that give way to a sharp hop bite. I think its extremely palatable but the abruptness with which the hops appear and disappear is strange - there is relatively little mouth coating and no weighty lingering aftertaste as I've come to expect with strong ales (or is this a IIPA?). (3.0)
The body is somewhat thick and there is low-moderate carbonation. Taking into account its ABV I'd say that one of these would be pleasant, but plenty. (3.0)
Would say, "you should definitely try that" if it were available, but probably wouldn't actively seek it out.

I initially just rated this beer without bothering to create a review; however, after purchasing a 6'er I felt the need to review after thoroughly enjoying my 3rd beer from the pack.
I simply wanted to say the combined balance of hops, melon, resin, caramel, burnt sugar, backing malt and faint booze quite possibly has created my new favorite go to 6 packer.
I use to always rely on Flower Power as a fallback if I didn't want to buy bombers or create my own from the local bottle shop.
At I believe $2.50 cheaper this has now usurped and falls into lead position. It's been said before on many a thread but I'm now a true believer that Lagunitas provides top 3 bang for buck.
