I discovered this limited release offering from Lagunitas in Huntsville, AL of all places at a convenience store/gas station; not the most auspicious location to fine a nice brew. Nonetheless, there it was... and on sale. It comes in the 1 pint 6 fluid oz size bottle. Lagunitas being Lagunitas, I thought it prudent to give it a try. What a find! This is a dark ale that seems to be crossed with an authoritative IPA. The O.G is 1.075, it has an IBU of 65 and hefts an 8.2% by volume of punch. This brew forms a substantial head when poured that subsides within a minute or so. There are the dark, chocolaty flavors of the stout mingled nicely with the bitter pleasing bite of hops. That's a nice combination. Make no mistake, I am not a beer snob who finds 'notes of leather, jasmine and peach' in beers that I enjoy. I know what I like and I like this very much. If you are fortunate enough to find this offering in your location do yourself a favor and give it a try. In the words of Eric Burdon and the Animals, "It will be worth it"!

If the "session IPA" is to replace the classic American pale ale in the future- Lagunitas is ahead of the curve with this dog of a low-bodied hop-bomb!

Its innocent enough austere is light gold, nearly emulating pilsner with a caramelized gaze. But with the taste looming, the nose is taken back by the IPA-like scent that squarely focuses on white grapefruit rind, under-ripened orange and a strong grassy and leafy quality. Its grain and caramel sweetness is supportive of the hop onslaught at first but that is all short lived.

The malt sweetness drops out of the middle palate, and leaves creamy malt textures to fend for their own- quickly dominated by the citrus, leaf and herbaceous hop flavor. Strong carbonation brings the vegetative flavors to life and gives the palate a good scrubbing heading into finish.

Closing with strong bitterness that stands tall in the absence of malt- dragging with it the character of citrus pith, grass, stem and leaf. Its chlorophyll bite hangs in the back of the throat and is slow to relinquish its grip. The rest of the flavors are fast-fleeting and leaves the palate clean, crisp and refreshed.
