22 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a towering four-finger pale brown shade. It features an incredibly thick, soapy texture, along with some beautiful lacing.
S: Citrusy hops befitting a Lagunitas product jump out at me first. Sadly, I kind of wish more of the brown ale qualities jumped out at me. Still, it has a decent nutty tone beneath all the grapefruit - but there's also an acidic note to the hops that's somewhat overbearing.
T: The first sensation on the palate is tons of citrusy hops. It comes across as if you're biting into a grapefruit. Just like I feared in the aroma, there isn't much 'brown ale' to be found (maybe a touch of caramel, toffee, and nuts in the middle of the palate), yet there's just enough to balance out the (excellent) hops without overshadowing them.
M: I love the crisp lightness of this. I really thought this would be sweet and heavy, and instead it goes down superbly. It does become a bit sweeter as it warms up, though - nothing that's a dealbreaker, though.
O: This drinks more like an IPA with darker malts instead of a brown ale with a bit of hoppiness. The aroma threw me for a loop, but once I accepted it was the former instead of the latter, I really grew to like this one a lot. I have to wonder: does Lagunitas make anything that sucks? Don't answer that.
