Pours a brilliantly clear deep copper/amber, with a lingering frothy cream head.

Muted citrus, resin, deeply caramelized malt, and notes of toffee form the aroma. Citrus dominates.

Flavor reveals candied citrus in the background, which lingers throughout. The bready caramel malt is no slouch. It's balanced nicely by the citrus hops, with a nicely bittered finish. Pine emerges in the aftertaste.

Body is full, with modest carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.

Very well balanced between flavoring hops, bittering hops, and malt. To the extreme in flavor and malt, perhaps just a touch you sweet. I love Lagunitas.
