A bottle of WTF split into snifters.
Pours mahogany in color with ruby hues where the light pushes through. An inch of fluffy white head develops, and lingers for a few minutes. Upon settling, a hearty ring of bubbles surrounds the surface while a solid dusting covers it. The aroma is of caramel malt, earthy hops, a bit of spice, and a solid dose of orange/lemon citrus. Some nuts (cashews, most predominantly), toast, and ubiquitous "dark fruit" is buried in there as well. It tastes of citrus, a suite of hops (bitter, earthen, and spicy all appear), and some grass up front. Quickly, the more robust malts push through, and caramel, toast, nuts, plum, and a bit of toffee come through. The mouthfeel is initially lightened by the carbonation, but becomes viscous, sticky, and resinous before too long. Finish is dry. Overall, this is a good strong ale that I'd happily drink again. Like many things (everything?) from Lagunitas, there are a ton of hops here, and they play nicely with the maltier base.
