Wonderful barley-wine style ale. Nice pale appearence and hoppy aroma. An excellent balance of malt and hops. Strong enough to give you a nice slap in the face. A solid strong ale. Excellent value at only $9.99 a SIX pack. Could sell at $10.99 a four pack in today's QE3 economy. Will try to emualte via homebrew.

12 ounce bottle

Pours a nice rich glowing shade of almond hued amber. Khaki head stays nicely. Goes to a thick high collar and then a fine film and moderate low lacing strands.

The sniff reveals notes of rich malting and minty hops.

Full flavor malty brew with broad shoulders and a bold hoppy finish. Notes of maple malts, vanilla, honey and resinous hops sealing the finish.

Lagunitas all the way
