Oh, Lagunitas. I just wanna drive you to a secluded spot, hop in the back seat and make out with you. You look ravishing in your amber-golden hues, but a little more head would be nice. I mean, your bubbles are bueno, but I like a bit more on top. Know what I mean? Your aroma is intoxicating. Just like a Christmas tree should smell, sans the tinsel that the dog swallows and has to be pulled out later. After a few minutes of tongue wrasslin', you're so much more than pine needles. Your sweetness shines through like a bowl of Kaboom. Exploding with color and fractal complexity. A delight of the highest order.
As we ride home (I called us a cab) with your x-mas tree-infused sweetness still on my mind and lips, I realize this: I love you and you might be pregnant.

32 oz bottle - poured into a porter goblet.
A - Golden. White head on the pour. Mellows into a thin consistent lace. light haze and clean.
S - Grapefruit, hops, faint bread.
T - Follows the smell. Grapefruit up front. Well balanced with yeast and a mild bready maltiness. Finish is crisp and semi bitter and refreshing. Cannot detect the alcohol.
M - Medium body. very nice on the palate.
O - I don't normally seek out hoppy beer. Picked this one up on a world beer tour challenge and glad I did. Really nice and enjoyable especially based on the fact that its a complete opposite of my favor of porters and stouts. Would definitely recommend and will buy again. Looking forward to an easy finish of the 32 oz bottle.
