Appearance - Pours brown with a slight golden hue. Head builds beautifully to a little over finger width, then works it's way down to a fine sheet of ever-present microbubbles on the surface. Lacing is spotty, with good stick.
Smell - Distinct citrus hops. Sweet red grapefruit and hints of sugared orange pieces. Mildly spicy. Fruity esters. Touches on bread.
Taste - Big ruby red grapefruit note upfront and resonates through to the finish. Bready malts and subtle dried fruit notes mid-taste, then faint brown sugar sweetness and earthy nuttiness toward the finish. More sweet than bitter, but fairly balanced overall.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, with a bit of creamy carbonation. Smooth. Goes down rather nicely.
Overall - Reminiscent of many of the Lagunitas releases, but less aggressively hopped. Fairly mellow all-around, though not for lack of flavor. Definitely opens up as the beer warms. A solid example of what I feel should be a recognized style, an Imperial Brown.

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.
