A - pours perfectly clear golden amber color, with a foamy white head. Decent sheets of lacing

S - smell has a nice mix of tropical hops and a nice fruit sweetness. Almost a raspberry like sweetness to the smell. A little bit different from most Lagunitis offerings, but very promising.

T - Nice caramel taste, maybe toffee. The sweetness noticed in the aroma is present here as well. Nicely balanced with noticeable hop bitterness, balanced off by the malt profile. Very nice

M - alcohol is noticeable, some burn on the aftertaste. Carbonation is moderate.

O - Very nice amber ale. I have been holding on to this for a few months so it is not as fresh as it maybe should be, but either way, another very solid offering from a great brewery.

Source/Serving: 750mL bottle

S: Red fruit and berry malt equally matched by pine hoppiness. Caramel and brown sugar in abundance. Hints of lemon-lime, guava oil, and toasted biscuit. Alcohol is noticeable and a little sharp.

T: Slightly sweet red fruit and plum malts up front are quickly balanced by grape skin/pine bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick and rich. Sweet/bitter axis is well balanced, vacillating between brief mirages that its leans sweet or bitter at any moment. Pleasantly over the top. Notes of candied, juicy rasp-strawberry, lime, brown sugar, toasted earth, and kumquat. Pine/citrus bitterness is somewhat pithy and rough especially in the finish. Finish has notes of pine, green herbs, and is quite dry. Lingers tacky and thick on the tongue.
