Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 06.03.14.

A: See through amber/orange body. 2 1/2 finger white head. Fantastic lacing.

S: Lots of grapefruit as usual with Lagunitas beers. It also has burnt caramel/brown sugar.

T: Grapefruit and burnt caramel dominate. Flower and hop resin are subtle.

O: This was good, but it was more malt forward than I like. Maybe the bottle was old and the hops died though.

Rating: B
