Red-bronze color. Hardly any head formed. Clarity is a plus.
Boozy nose with red caramel malts, citrusy orange and grapefruit hops (a la Lagunitas), and a light tinniness. All in all, a nice aroma.
Barleywine-like strength with well-kilned grains and citrus hops. Lots of ruby red grapefruit, toffee, light vanilla extract fume, and red grapes. Fruity with a flair of Angostura Bitters flavor. Light metal note that is extended by a breathy alcohol finish. Warming as it goes down. Sticky body with a hefty medium viscosity. Carbonation is well-checked. A little scrub at first and a little late.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
