This is another strong beer from Lagunitas both in terms of alcohol and flavor. It pours a dark amber with good carbonation and a strong aroma of hops and toffee. The taste has the usual Lagunitas’ hops balanced with a good malt and caramel backbone. This is definitely a full-bodied beer with a strong complex flavor that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Pours a deep, rich amber color, with a thick, foamy, rocky head that clings to the lip of the glass. The aroma is a bright, semi-sweet combination of citrus and pine that is bold but not overly assertive. The flavor is much more aggressive, though, with a potent, resinous pine forest hop character that is only mildly countered by a bready malt sweetness. The sticky, resinous, full mouthfeel becomes weighty after a while. Overall, this is a bold, hop-dominant IIPA/Strong Ale that is quite nice in a single glass but might be too much for me to enjoy multiple servings at once.
