22 oz bomber poured into a 24oz glass -- slow down the side for the first half, then slow right down the middle for a little head.
Appearance is Coca Cola brown. This could be a stealth trick! I got a thumb of creamy tan head that dissolved fairly quickly and left soap-scum rings around the glass where I paused my drinking.
The predominant smell was the Lagunitas hops note with the added malty almost sulfur undertones similar to Sucks. There is pine in the smell but less citrus and almost none of the floral notes. A vanilla smell comes out as the beer warms a bit. The smell is good but hardly remarkable.
The taste is very good. It's got the big hops bite that I like. It's kind of disturbing that most Lagunitas beers share a significant portion of the same flavors -- which is that predominant hops profile. On the good side, I LOVE that hops profile and it's what keep bringing me back. The malt aspects are pretty minor and only stand out when compared to a lighter ale like Little Sumpin' Sumpin'.
I don't know what mouthfeel is, but the dank hops linger on the tongue after I swallow and I like it when this happens.
Would Drink Again. 'Nuff said.

A- Deep caramel in color. Clear. A lager three finger head develops with a heavy pour. Moderate lacing
S- Bitter hops and roasted malts, vanilla bean, brown sugar. A sweet bready aroma comes through.
T- Sweet bready malts but not as much hop as the nose. Well balanced with a warming aftertaste.
M- Surprisingly light bodied for an imperial brown. Goes down easy.
O- Good not great but it may just be be. While well built and drinkable, to me the flavor seems a little off. This was my first taste of WTF and with no apparent date on the bottle, I don't know if its me or the brew. I'll have to give it another go.
