Pours dark amber, clear with some floating particles. Smells hoppy up front with heavy caramel and lightly roasted malts. Slight hops up front with a heavy malty caramel middle and a bitter sweet heavy finish with lingering alcoholic flavors. Feels slick and heavy across the palate.

I really like this beer. Has a hoppy floral aroma that you dont really expect on a beer this dark. The malt dominates the flavor with great hop flavor balancing throughout. Definitely a beer I would buy again.

A - poured to frozen tumbler w/ a modest lightly foamy head. - not well maintained. Good clarity

S- nothing jumps out at me here. hoppy but not overtly so

T - not one for the record books. strange flavor I could not identify

M - OK - carbonation just about right

O - not one of Lagunitas' best efforts. I really like their overall lineup as they are one of my favorite brewers but this one is not one and will not be purchased by me again.
