Pours a deep copper amber with a large lasting beige head, has good head retention and lacing. Aroma is of earthy hops, caramel malt, yeast with some dark fruit undertones. Taste the same as aroma with some good earthy hops bitterness, yeast and some notes of brown sugar. A medium to full body, smooth and a sticky mouth feel, good carbonation on the palate. Finishes with a good portion of sweet caramel malt, yeast a bit of dark fruit and brown sugar flavors and earthy hops on the ending. Has a nice caramel malt character and well behaved hops bitterness. Overall a well balanced and good drinking brew.

On tap. Great sweet malty aroma. Very tasty. Sweet caramel flavors with a good bitter punch. One of my favorites I've had from Lagunitas. Will look for some in the store next time.
