BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Lagunitas Brewing Company
California, United States
lagunitas.com

Style: German Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
This fruity, estery double altbier is brewed in the traditional-ish style of the Doppelsticke, which is the widely known secret Germanic-esque strong ale. Like it's California Common counterpart, we fermented this ale at a lower temperature to pull out the sulphur-y bite from the yeast, then dry-hopped it with some dank, Sticky hops, including some brand-spankin'-new Enigma hops from the great Down Under!

12oz bottle with an imperial nonic glass
First had this on 10/10/15

Super sticky Alt punch!

Light caramel color body with some cloudiness to it. Massive and dense with the white suds action. Leaves a scattered trellis of lace sticking to the glass. Waves of dank Mary Jane in the aroma and flavor. Its lightly tropical with grapefruit, dank resins, and some spices. I get the bready malt with biscuit notes and a light toasted caramel kiss. A bit of stone fruit with some faint earthiness as well. Really well balanced in the face of a danky hop onslaught. Tips the scales more towards IPA or at least drinks like one to me. Leafy green with tropical citrus and spice. Swayed with toasted bread and light toffee. Moderate body with a nice frothy texture and good drying in the finish. Fairly resinous.

Loving this One Hitter series. Another little gem from Lags in my book.

No label information. Doppel Sticky is brewed in the style of a German Altbier (Sticke), available in 12 oz. bottled 6 packs and on limited draft. 2015 Onehitter series release.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a tulip glass.

(Appearance) Pours a billowing creamy foam head of a pearl white tone over a mildly hazy golden amber body with moderate carbonation and high clarity. Retention is very good and lacing is light and patchy. 4.5

(Smell) Lightly toasted caramel syrup malt body and pale malt cleanliness with a moderate sweetness, with a nicely hopped blend of lemony, herbal and spicy hop aromas with a moderate bitterness. Potency is moderate. 4

(Taste) Toasted bread malts, caramel malts and pale syrup body with a high cleanliness, finishes moderately bitter on the back end with flavors of piney, herbal and lemony hops. Assertive and flavorful with an enticingly delicate malt body. Very enjoyable. 4.25

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, lightly chewy, silky, clean, mildly dry. Carbonation is moderate, generating a medium frothiness and a briskly crisp finish. Body is short of medium for the style, medium+ overall. Balance is nearly even sweet to hoppy bitter. Alcohol presence is light and there are no off characters. 3.75

(Overall) A very satisfying German-influenced style that comes off as Americanized with the inclusion of a bright, flavorful and very bitter hops. Another enjoyable treat and reasonably priced offering from Lagunitas. 4.25

A bit sweet for an altbier, but this was still very good. I had it on tap and was surprised that it was 66 IBUs, since I didn't really get much of a strong hop feel or taste. This was my first Lagunitas beer and I'll try more when I find them out and about town.

Pours a pale orange; I was expecting a much darker pour. Decent yeasty aroma, flavor was bitter with a semi-sweet almost caramellike aftertaste. Unspectacular.
