Misc.: N/A

Poured a dark copper amber clear color with two fingers of khaki white head. Lighter than expected sporadic lacing on the sides. Average retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled a pleasant mix of floral hops, citrus hops (grapefruit) and bitter Belgian spices.

Tasted similar to the nose but with a long lingering bitter finish. Could definitely taste the alcohol. Also got floral hops, citrus hops (grapefruit) and some caramel malts.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively (above average) carbonation. Long, bitter finish.

Just another solid beer from Lagunitas. Wouldn’t expect anything less.
