From notes taken 06/28/17:

Clear copper-amber with pulpy, weightless, abundant but loose flecks of varying size. Foamy, frothy head of cream, both color and texture. A “mustache" of lace, so to speak. Aroma is rich indeed, reminds me of a number of good Belgian ales, some spiciness, touch of vinegar, candy sugar, vegetable broth, nothing super hoppy or even boozy, more so malt and yeast. Palate only partially bears this out in the balance, it is toasty, metallic, spicy, with heavy suggestions of caramel and toffee, but with a more substantial showing of hops ranging from resin and faint lemon throughout, to leaf matter and almost leather around the finish, to peppercorn in the retro-olfaction via combination with a boozy afterbreath. Full-bodied, creamy, with fine tingly suds soon stretching themselves to the finest velvet. Good, in an unexpected way. Compare and contrast both with American Ambers and Belgians ales along the lines of the Double, the Saison, and the Dark.

How to ruin a classic, Dry Hop it. I missed that label and thought I was getting an old favorite. Too hoppy for me. I've been mixing it 50/50 with Dead Guy Ale to make it drinkable.

L: Clear dark amber with a massive creamy white head. Fairly good retention, sheets of gloppy lacing.

S: Caramel, toffee, rich toasted brown bread, earth, pennies, tobacco, pine, orange peel.

T: Toasted brown bread, caramel, toffee, and orange peel throughout. Bready and rich without being as sweet as the nose implied. Fairly crisp and clean. Some earth and pine offers a gentle touch of sappy bitterness on the finish. Overall, it's quite light while being immensely flavorful, malty and neither too sweet nor too bitter.

F: Medium-light, yet well-carbonated for a smoothly rounded sensation. Well-balanced between sweet and dry, so fairly clean, so it's extremely drinkable.

O: Confession: This is over seven months old, and yet, it did not suffer. I'm assuming it lost a lot of hoppiness, but instead of being a malt bomb, it's a balanced and tasty red ale with tons of flavor. I love it!

Eh. Not the level I expected from my favorite brewery. I guess they can't all be outstanding, just ask Aunt Sally.

This is another one of this brewery's quality offerings. Tremendous hoppy amber ale.

The appearance was a clear red colored body with a foamy two finger lumpy white head that lasted for thirty seconds and slowly died to a half finger coating the top of the body. Though the body was fairly clear, no carbonation was seen rising. Some nice foamy ringy lacing graced the sides of the glass. The smell was centered around caramel malts, a bit of light toffee all mixed in an earthy sort of way. The taste was the same ingredients from the aromas blended very nicely. On the palate, she sat at/about a medium almost closer to heavy with nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, well once again another Lagunitas brew impressing me that I would have more than another.
