12 oz bottle from the Utah system. The beer guy at the Foothill SLC store and I are friends. I walk in one afternoon, he says Do i want to have a special beer. So I say sure and here is the review.
Appearance: Toasted marshmellow colored head fades quickly to leave a ring around the edge. The beer is a clear light amber and has little lacing.
Smell: Nice citric and floral hops with a slight metallic undertone pair nicely with caramel malts. This one is boozy in the nose, also.
Taste: This beer is strong like an IPA or DIPA, it certainly has the bitterness. But this one is not as hops forward as those styles. The hops is more in nose than a lingering finish. Actually, the finish is somewhat sweet at the very end. Toffee and caramel malt are the main drivers here. The malt is forward and in your face as much as malt can be. A nice change of pace.
Mouthfeel: The carbonation is especially prickly on this beer, while the finish is long and drawn out.
Overall: While this one is a change of pace, some thing just is either missing or does not mesh correctly. Not sure that i can put my hand on it. It is solid but not great.

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.
