look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

A: Pours a golden color. The head has the typical frothiness of a Belgian-style beer, but perhaps isn't as towering, at only a finger high. Head color is eggshell. Spotty patches of lacing are left down the glass.

S: Pleasantly spicy, with the sweet hops typical of Lagunitas. There's also a decent black pepper note which serves to balance the former out. Buried beneath those two is a faint malt backbone. This really smells like it will be good.

T: Upon hitting the palate, it tastes exactly like LSS - imagine that. It starts with a combination of wheat malt and sweet-yet-piny hoppiness. But that finish is where it really takes off. The spiciness on the back end gives this a passing resemblance to a good tripel, albeit one that's well hopped. Basically, it's delicious throughout.

M: One gripe, it's a bit too heavy. Because of that and carbonation that's only 'medium', the sweetness isn't fully cleansed off of the finish quite as much as I'd like. Still, that's not a problem in the least. There's no hint of the 8.8% anywhere; this feels like it's about 5%.

O: Lagunitas is just like Motorhead - they tend to always taste/sound the same from beer to beer/album to album, but when that taste/sound is so damn good, it really doesn't matter. Yes, this is just another hoppy Lagunitas beer. And I don't care, because this is really damn good.
