Picked this one up on a recommendation from my local craft store owner. Do not regret it. The price was right for a 750ml or so bottle - $4.99.

Appearance - Pours an amberish-brown with a white creamy head. Lacing lasts throughout. Nice.

Aroma - Strong floral hops balanced with heavy malt. Reveals it's balance. I expected more bitterness from the aroma.

Taste - Beautifully balanced hop and malt. ABV is masked nicely. Cherry citrus mixed with warm bread.

Mouthfeel - Nice and only slight burn from relatively high ABV. Wakes you up.

Overall an excellent brew - one of the best Strong Ales I've had in quite a while. Definitely expected more bitterness, especially after running it under my nose. One of the best balanced beers I've ever had. Excellent work by Lagunitas!

Poured in a Tulip glass.

A- pours a beautiful ruby red body with not much head retention.

S- Dark fruits, Fig, and hops

T- A combination of Grapefruit, Fig, Raisins, hops, and slight notes of orange and caramel. The hops are not to overwhelming leaving a satisfying bitter after taste in your mouth.

O- One of my new favorites from Lagunitas. A nice ruby body with fresh ingredients that do not overwhelm each other. Its a definite must have.

I'm going to try to keep this short and sweet.

Appearance: Definitely a darker brown beer.

Smell: I can smell the hops right away and know that this is going to be a crisp piece of heaven. It has a pleasant "roasty" smell to it as well.

Taste: DELICIOUS! Hoppy, but not over done.

Mouthfeel: Crisp on the tongue at first with perfect carbonation and a great lingering aftertaste.

Drinkability: I'm glad I bought more than one!

Serving type: bottle/stein
