look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance
Deep dark intriguing brown with a frothy off white head
Smell
This beer smells of honey, malt, very hoppy nose that is balanced by a strong malt profile
Taste
very malty taste, there’s hints of honey, caramel and a lot of hops throughout and in the finish.It hides the alcohol pretty well
Overall
This is a nice change up to the regular Lagunitas line, it was a bit pricey. It doesn’t have Lagunitas regular explosive flavor but is still a bit heavy

A - Quiet brew of orange color, very translucent, small head with wonderful lacing.

S - I don't pick up much, some nectar, some toasted wood

T - Caramel and even quite sweet upfront - even young tasting, great spicing in the middle - red pepper flakes - along with plantain sweetness. Welcomed bitter balance. Not smooth, but very drinkable

M - Hefty carbonation, heavy feel.

O - Bursts of sweet and spice, malt and hops. Wonderfully bold and hearty. Enjoyable, but a bit too sugary sweet and I reached my limit on sweetness halfway thru.
