3.65/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Date on neck says day 153 which is June 2nd. Which makes this 5 months old! Yikes...

A - Pours out a clear copper orange with one finger white head that died off fast. Leaves lots of legs and leaves nice lacing.

S - This beer is sweet like a sucker, herbal, not really any hops hear. Pretty fruity not of the citrus kind but like a mango, or melon, pineapple, grapefruit. No alcohol.

T - Hops are more present here then on the nose with a citrus bitterness, lemon, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and caramel bready malts. Not to bitter pretty balanced but alcohol flavor on this brew is rather strange. Hops do not seem really fresh on this one. Lingering bitter aftertaste present. A rather sweet beer.

M - Carbonation is nice and present on this medium bodied beer. This one is easy on the palate and goes down nice and easy. Not as sticky as the nose would have you believe.

O - A rather pleasant easy drinking Strong Ale. Lagunitas makes some good sweet beers and this one lives up to it. One worth picking up if you like a sweet imperial beer that is nice and citrusy. I did find this beer enjoyable but it had a weird alcohol flavor on it. Wish the alcohol presence was not so noticeable because it distracted from the other great flavors. Oh well, Cheers!
