Pours a dark copper color with mahogany edges and a one finger, frothy off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Glass is left coated with streaks of soapy lacing. Looks great!
Dank floral hop aroma with a decent balance of tropical fruit, earthy grass and sweet malt. Malt presence is a bit stronger than expected with lots of caramel and toffee sweetness along with some dark fruit and cracker.
Full bodied and surprisignly malty for the style. Again, there is a lot of caramel sweetness along with fig, vinous fruit and biscuit. The strong malt character takes away from the hops too much for my liking. Also, the hop profile is kind of one dimensional with dry bitterness lingering throughout. Needs some sweetness to cut through. All dry, earthy bitterness with prominent grass and pine needle flavors. Lacks balance and complexity. A rare miss from Lagunitas.
Serving type: on-tap
