ACBF sample

A-Pours clear orange with a large head, especially for the sample cup.

S-It smells fresh and brightly hoppy with a lot of orange hoppiness. There is also a noticeable aroma of pine and weed.

T-Juicy citrus and resiny pine. It's straightforward but pretty tasty. Powerfully hopped. Just enough backing from the malt with little residual malty flavor.

M-Surprised the ABV is this high, it's hidden very well. Bitter. Medium bodied. Resiny.

O-Another well brewed hoppy beer from Lagunitas. Not as good as a few of their others but still a great beer to sample.
