Notes from 10/14/14

A - 2 fingers of bubbly rolling white head. Good retention and great lacing. Honey colored body.

S - A little dry funk (Belgian yeast). Some sweeter fruit followed by way more yeast.

T - Sweet citrus (grapefruit) with some bitterness. Them a little pineapple and stone fruit. Finishes with yeast and more citrus rind bitterness.

M - Effervescent. Tingly on the tongue. Finishes on the dryer side for an IPA.

O - Fun, way too drinkable IPA. Love the base beer and this is a great variant.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a slightly hazy dark yellow, with a nice inch of head. Nice lacing. Aroma isn't huge, but I get some slight pineapple, a little bit of slight yeasty funk, and some grassy notes. The taste is much bigger than the smell, with lots of pineapple, mango, and biscuit, along with that funky, yeasty flavor. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, with a lot of carbonation to add some good "bite" to this beer. The alcohol is very well hidden in this 8.8% beer. Overall, this is another outstanding beer from Lagunitas - as expected.
