I am becoming a big fan of this brewery's beer. Hop Stoopid is just amazing and this one is pretty good as well.
A- Pours a deep red with a one finger head and some pretty good lacing on the glass.
S- I love the smell of this beer, citrus, hops and sugar with a hint of malt. Very similar to Hop Stoopid, but not as hoppy, a little more malt presence as well.
T- Not bad at all, alcohol up front, then the citrusy hops hit followed by a malty sugar cane taste. Very complicated, hard to describe, complex and sweet.
M- This beer is smooth, it goes down very easy, the alcohol is present and it can be a little overpowering, the hops though are fantastic.
D- The alcohol up front makes this go down a little rough. It is really tasty and I am glad I had it. Not sure if I could drink too many in a row, but for a one and done it is not bad.
So far I have had 2 from a sixer, and the second was much different than the first. The first I did not like as much, the second was sweeter, more citrus and the alcohol was in the background. I love the story behind this beer and think it is a good one to have at a bar, not a session beer, but very solid.

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.
