Lagunitas Undercover Investigation Shutdown Ale

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint. Served chilled...

A) Golden Amber brew with a creamy finger of head. Nice retention as this holds at a dusting for the duration. Nice lacing... A very attractive beer...

S) A pretty sweet scent that mixes a little pine and citrus together as well. A little bit of alcohol.

T) Similar to the aroma. It's like caramel coated oranges. Mind you, I've never had a caramel coated orange in my life, but that's my take. There's brown sugar and butter too. Yes, that's what I'm getting here, brown sugar, butter and oranges. It's a little boozy, but not hot.

M) The mouthfeel is full with moderate carbonation. This is sticky, not quite syrupy. Has a bitter sweet finish...

O) I liked it, but didn't love it. It was a mild disappointment, given my expectations when drinking a Lagunitas beer. It just fell a little short in the flavor department for my tastes.
