Poured from bottle into SA Perfect Pint glass, no bottle date or code that I could find.
Pours an medium amber color, couldn't stop thinking of rust either when it came to the color. One finger creamy head that disappeared rather quickly. Lacing left at the top and the bottom of the glass.
I smell citrus and hops. The citrus is along the lines of grapefruit. The aromas are not the strongest atribute of this beer as I really had to work to pick up the aromas. Even as the beer warmed it was difficult to smell.
Taste is where this beer shines. Starts up front with the right amount of malty sweetness which is followed up by the grapefruity citrus and finally a strong hop finish. Very tasty indeed.
This is a medium bodied beer and has big alcohol content at 9.87%. The alcohol however barely makes itself known during the course of this glass.
One fine ale. I paired this with a mildly spicey chicken enchilada and it was near perfect. This beer looks and tastes great, one I will certainly be looking out for next spring.

A - Amber caramel. Looks really neat. Decent head size.
S - Smells hoppy with some citrus and some caramel malt.
T - Lots going here. Malty caramel with some sweet citrusy notes followed by some Lagunitas hops. Different and different temperatures. Can feel alcohol but it's enjoyable.
M - Surprisingly smooth. Perfect amount of carbonation.
O - I go between what is my favorite Lagunitas and for a time it was this. Great beer. Great Job.
