Clear copper with piles of honeycombed ecru foam. 4
Orange rind, caramel chews, + a surprise bit of pencil erasers. 3.75
Toffee on crispbread, some banana taffy, a bit of tin, then middling grass, herbal + lemon peel hops. 3.5
Almost medium, some chew, round. 3.75

This sat or got warm or… something. “197” dating code is July, so this is actually pretty fresh, but there are some odd fruity esters popping out that I’m not expecting in anything Lagunitas. That pineappley house yeast playing tricks with crystal malts? I don’t know but - along with being underhopped + a bit thin - this is totally falling flat for me.

Mr Magee, please report to the Heineken QC Dept. immediately. 3.25

I am really beginning to believe that this brewer can do no wrong...

From the bottle into a pint glass the beer pours a slightly reddish color with very good head that sticks around along with distinctive lacing all the way down the glass. The smell has hints of caramel which mix well with the hops and it's just a simple scent, but appealing, on the nose. The mouthfeel at first is very carbonated but it has a smooth almost watery finish that most times I wouldn't like, but in this instance seems to work (at least for me.) The taste was mostly ale with some spicy notes I couldn't quite pull out, so overall I find it a solid and very good brew. Lagunitas just continues to show me why they are so hyped...

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Red amber colored body floating a persistent 1in whitish head.
Aromas include malt and stone fruit, and is that cardamum?
Flavors are all malt with some slight caramel and a late bitter taste.
Feel leans heavy, full, but not creamy.
A very nice red.

I poured this from a bottle into a clear teardrop glass. It does pour a copper color, but cloudy. A one finger white head quickly dissipated. The smell is yeasty and malty, much like the worts i made when I home brewed. What's unusual, to me, is the lack of hops; something unusual for this brewer. I like it! It doesn't have that staple Lagunitas flavor that seems to run through all their beers.
