Three pour bartender on this one. Lots of head and what was left on my glass lasted a very long time, leaving a blanket of lace. Deep, dirty copper color and very clear.
Predominant grapefruit rind aroma. A bit of candy sugar to the nose also.
Starts off malty with lots of Crystal and mild sweetness. You cannot anticipate the hop explosion that comes with the swallow. Both pepper and alcohol warmth show up in the aftertaste. Full bodied with low carbonation.
In short, this is an unexpectedly complex beer.
Serving type: on-tap

4.19/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Dark amber with a good head and excellent lacing.
Smell: Caramel and grassy malts, hints of citrus.
Taste: Caramel, grass, chocolate, booze, brown sugar, citrus.
Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy bodied and creamy, with a bitter hop aftertaste.
The Verdict: Delicious. Complex and well balanced, this is another great example of Lagunitas’ stand out American Strong Ales. I’d love to down the six pack, but I don’t think I’d make it through two of them. Maybe I should have eaten something.
Serving type: bottle
