Hadn't heard of this beer before finding it on tap at Rustico in Alexandria, VA. Since everything else from Lagunitas has been above par I thought I'd try it out. Was I glad I did! This starts out a nice, orange hue with a thin head. The lacing is quite intricate and consistent throughout the pint.
The grapefruit knocks you upside the head as you bring the glass up to your nose. A hint of lemon followed by a little spice really whets your appetite for this one. Bam! - the taste is exactly like it smells...hallelujah! I love beer that is this fresh, flavorful, and has enough alcohol to convince you that you're enjoying a real beer. With a medium mouthfeel, I was expecting something slicker, this ale has a high drinkability quotient. Careful though, that 8%+ abv can sneak up on ya'.
Serving type: on-tap
